Dan Aykroyd Wine Supports Canadian Forces in Afghanistan through Wine

Donation has Helped Boost Morale of Troops

NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE, ON, May 18 /CNW/ - Diamond Estates Wines & Spirits Ltd., the company that crafts and distributes Dan Aykroyd Wines is proud to announce their support of the Canadian Troops currently serving in Afghanistan. "The troops have the option, once per month of enjoying an alcoholic beverage and we thought the wines from a Canadian icon (Dan Aykroyd) would be a perfect fit here. This donation has been possible thanks to the support of our fellow Canadians who purchase Dan Aykroyd Wines," says Murray Marshall, President & CEO of Diamond Estates Wines & Spirits Ltd. Commanding Officers in Afghanistan may request authority to hold one unit function per month where beer and wine may be served. Troops are allowed to enjoy up to two beers or two glasses of wine at these functions. Beer has often been donated by Canadian breweries but the wine had to be purchased until this donation from Diamond Estates with Dan Aykroyd Wines.

"I was onboard the moment Diamond Estates mentioned their support of our troops with Dan Aykroyd Wines. This is a very proud moment for me as a Canadian and I hope these wines can inspire some light hearted times during this difficult mission for our armed forces," says Dan Aykroyd.

The wines arrived in Afghanistan on Friday, May 7 and have been received positively according to Mark Larose, Canadian Forces Personnel and Family Support Services. "We appreciate any demonstration of public support and this contribution will contribute to the morale of our men and women serving in Afghanistan."
