Dec 23, 2019 No Comments by

Victor G. Harvey, Sr., owner of locally based Victor George Vodka (VG), recently completed his first of several scheduled acquisitions of property in the Sistrunk corridor by purchasing land at 1012 Sistrunk Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.

Harvey has plans to use the property as part of his plans to build a 13,000-square foot facility that will house the Old Sistrunk Distillery, along with a tasting room, restaurant, cigar bar, wine lounge, and meeting space, for distillery-based private and corporate events in the area.

The Old Sistrunk Distillery will produce premium products such as vodka, gin, whiskey, tequila, and other cordials and spirits. This will include the production of Harvey’s VG Vodka which is currently headquartered and available in the South Florida market. VG Vodka is a favorite of consumers throughout South Florida. It is one of the most requested local brands, having recently been featured at high profile events including the Fort Lauderdale Film Festival, Exotics on Las Olas, Art Basel in Miami and birthday parties for both Flo Rida and Torey Lanez, according to a release.


“I grew up in a part of Columbus, Ohio that is very similar to the Sistrunk area, so I have invested in Sistrunk because I believe in its potential.” said Harvey. “I have lived in South Florida for over 12 years where I have witnessed the growth of Flagler and FAT Village and know that Sistrunk can be the next hot exciting spot that will maintain an identity that is consistent with its vibrant history.”

Harvey adds, “Our new facility will provide a new place where the community can eat, drink, and socialize, without having to leave the neighborhood.  This is the kind of establishment that the Fort Lauderdale CRA and city officials are looking to populate the corridor to help provide significant employment opportunities to the residents who live in the Sistrunk area.”


“It is good to see businesspeople such as Mr. Harvey continue to invest in the Sistrunk corridor. We are excited for his upcoming projects which will create jobs in the community,” says Vice Mayor and City Commissioner for District III Robert McKinzie.

VG Vodka is a gluten-free all-natural vodka promising no headaches, hangovers or burn, and can be found throughout South Florida at some of your favorite restaurants, bars, and liquor retailers such as Total Wine, Crown Wine & Spirits, Ocean Wine & Spirits, Morton’s Restaurant and many others – totaling more than 130 locations.
