The women-owned amaro distillery will donate 3% of sales to the organization that provides sustainable healthcare for working musicians in the Puget Sound area.

The next beneficiary of Fast Penny Spirits’ quarterly giveback program will be SMASH, Musicians Access to Sustainable Healthcare. The Seattle-based maker of Amaricano and Amaricano Bianca will donate 3% of all bottle sales to the non-profit from the first quarter of 2023.

The Pretty Penny Giveback program was implemented into Fast Penny Spirits’ business plan from the start. The distillery is committed to supporting women in business, the community, and like-minded nonprofits and businesses.
