ArKay Beverages thanks Louise Matsakis' reporter at WIRED for criticizing Reynald Vito Grattagliano ArKay' founder.

By: Issuewire

ArKay suspects that Louise Matsakis has been manipulated by its competitors to criticize publicly Reynald Vito Grattagliano the creator of the alcohol-free spirits movement that he started in 2011

New York City, New York Mar 1, 2022 ( - The Alcohol-Free Spirits Alternative market is booming with products like the ones ArKay introduced eleven years ago. Nowadays, competitor brands such as Seedlip, Ritual Zero Proof, Lyres, and Spiritless have recently introduced their alcohol-free alternative drinks and all of them claim that they are the first ones. 

Arkay is extremely thankful that competitors such as Seedlip, Ritual, Lyres, and Spiritless have followed ArKay's footsteps to change consumers' lifestyles but at the same time very surprised that they could convince WIRED reporter' Louise Matsakis to publish an article against Reynald Vito Grattagliano using misleading facts and assumptions.

It is hard to believe that companies like Spiritless forgot to register their trademark and domain names, usually, companies of this magnitude have an intellectual property team working to protect their trademarks and domain names. In fact, Spiritless since its creation was more focused on copying Arkay's formula than to protect their own business, this proves the unpreparedness of imposters like Spiritless who have ignored the basics of good business practices in bypassing the trademarks and domain names protection steps, not only Spiritless copied Arkay's formula, but they also copied Kentucky 74' trademark which is one of the multiple Arkay's intellectual properties. 

It is also hard to believe that Miss Chitwood's Spiritless founder said that she was not aware of Arkay when she started her company, as in her own words she told WIRED that she knew about Arkay when she started Spiritlessly, it cannot be a coincidence that not only she copied Arkay products, but she also copied Kentucky 74 trademarks without previous knowledge.

Also, it is hard to believe that Benjamin Branson who is the countryman puppet bombarded by Diageo posting as Seedlip founder was not aware of Arkay when he started his business in 2015. Branson is so naïve and immature that he has no clue which year he started his company, he does not remember if it was in 2014 or 2015, this shows his innocence and unprofessionalism, in fact, it proves that he created nothing.

Lyres' situation is a little bit different, Lyres partnered in 2019 with an Arkay vendor under the name of Dohler to form a joint venture with him to legally steal ArKay's trade secrets. Just for the record, Arkay started to work with Dohler from 2012 until 2019.

It is interesting to see how Mr. Markus Sakey's Ritual Zero proof's co-founder is so fascinated by Reynald Vito Grattagliano that he is visiting Reynald's LinkedIn profile every single day, if Mr. Sakey was so sure of his company why would he be spying on Reynald Vito Grattagliano by visiting its LinkedIn profile every single day?

ArKay's competitors have great products, their only problem is that they cannot accept the facts that ArKay started before them, that they just copied ArKay and published all over the news that they were the first ones, which is not true.

2022 marks Arkay's 11th anniversary. In 2011, alcohol-free spirits' prospect was somewhat unknown to many but had gained momentum and popularity when Reynald Vito Grattagliano started ArKay, the world's first alcohol-free spirits alternative. Today ArKay is the dominant player in the sober industry, unfortunately, competitors hate that, and are using illegal practices to publish fake news.
