One Year Later, Erotique Liqueur is still getting everyone Erotique!

 
Richmond, VA (Wednesday, August 27, 2014)-  Lights! Camera! Action! Happy One Year Anniversary to Erotique Liqueur! On Saturday, September 6th, Trey Wheat, owner of Erotique Liqueur is bringing Hollywood to Richmond. This event will also serve as the official launch of Erotique Liqueur being sold throughout the state of Virginia.

 
What puts the cherry on top of the cake is that owner Trey Wheat is from Petersburg, VA so he is coming home with his dream in tow! Trey is a graduate of Howard University, a former MLB player and a man with a dream who mapped out his direction and started his execution and after some years it has come into fruition. It was only last year in Washington, DC when Erotique made its debut to the world at the red carpet launch alongside Actors Vivica Foxx and Laz Alonso. This year for it's birthday celebration, Actor Boris Kodjoe and VH1 Reality Star Yandy Smith will accompany Trey for a milestone in Richmond.

 
When asked about his excitement about this wonderful accomplishment in his career, Trey Wheat states "The hottest drink on the market, Erotique Liqueur, is turning 1 in September!  As a native of Petersburg VA, I am ecstatic about being able to bring my drink to my hometown market for friends and family to enjoy.  For years it's been a dream of mine to launch my own liquor brand, and it finally happened. Team Erotique is definitely looking forward to an amazing hometown celebration!"

 
The event will be held at Vanquish Nightclub on 1005 E Main St from 9PM-2AM with a Special Celebrity Guest DJ! To attend the One Year Celebration, tickets can be purchased at www.drinkerotique.eventbrite.com. In addition, there will also be an Erotique City Party Bus for those who want to make this a get away and want to save on gas, sit back and relax while someone else drives.
