Trailblazing Black Women Entrepreneurs Shake Up Spirits Industry with Daphane Limoncello

In support of National Black Business Month we are thrilled to celebrate Best Friends Daphane Carter and Taia Rashid who are the co-founders of Cashid Beverage Ltd Co.

Daphane Carter and Taia Rashid, co-founders of Cashid Beverage Ltd Co, are receiving media recognition as first African American women-owned citrus-based liqueur brand in the United States. Fresh off the launch of their debut handcrafted spirit, Daphane Limoncello, and two Silver Medal wins in the 2023 Bartender Spirits Awards, the Italian-inspired ultra-premium liqueur has now been recognized with the 2023 John Barleycorn Double Gold Award in Taste Competition and Silver Award for Best Overall Marketing and Design. Available in two delicious flavor varieties, Daphane’s traditional Limoncello and refreshing Raspberry Berrycello now have expanded availability at retailers such as Cork & Barrel Club, Total Wine, and Emilio’s.

Crafted to impress the luxury and breathtaking charm of the Amalfi Coast, Daphane Limoncello and Berrycello transport cocktail lovers to the sun-drenched lemon groves of south of Italy with every sip. Whether it’s enjoyed shaken in a crisp lemon drop martini or savored alone over ice, Daphane features a premium taste in a ready-to-drink liqueur created with juicy Meyer lemons and six times distilled from maize.

The 2023 John Barleycorn Spirit Awards honor the innovative distillers, writers, marketers, designers who cultivate the fertile traditions of the spirits industry. Assembled of the world’s top journalists and industry professionals, The John Barleycorn Society fosters a modern approach to recognizing excellence in the spirits industry from seed to glass. Daphne Limoncello and Raspberry Berrycello’s recent double Silver Medal recognition from The 2023 Bartender Spirits Awards applauded the premiere brand for its taste, mixability, balance, versatility and packaging.

Carter and Rashid are on a quest to reinvent the “luxe life” with their newly established lifestyle blog, The Limoncello Life, as they continue to pave the way and represent pioneering women of color in the spirits industry, advocating diversity, excellence, and equity.

Cashid Beverage Ltd Co began believing that ultra-premium liqueurs could have a special place in the current beverage landscape. Liqueurs are often looked at as a drink option for the novice drinker simply because the sweetness typically overpowers the taste of the base liqueur, allowing the producer to use lower-quality ingredients in their juice recipe. However, we firmly believe that a liqueur can be both tasty and refreshing while including the highest quality ingredients on the market. For more information, visit:
