Star Vodka is a premium American vodka, originating from handpicked corn that is harvested in the Midwest, then sent to a state-of-the-art micro distillery located in Oregon’s scenic Cascade Mountains, where the vodka undergoes a five-time filtration process through organically cooled lava rock. This careful process is completed in small batches to ensure Star Vodka’s standard as the smoothest and most selective gluten-free vodka on the market.
CHARLES FERRI, CEO and Founder of Star Vodka, was born in Hopewell Junction, New York to Anita and Chuck where he grew up with older sister Christina and younger brother Christopher. He graduated from SUNY Buffalo in 1996 and was eager to carve out his own path. Ferri headed straight to New York City where he followed in his sister’s footsteps going into the world of finance. He began his career at Sanford C. Bernstein Investment Management and later went on to Deutsche Bank. He excelled at wealth management, yet it just didn’t match his creative and free-spirited nature.
After eight years, Charles made the difficult decision to leave Wall Street to become an entrepreneur in search of his own passion for the American dream. He segwayed into a nightlife joint venture with one of his best friends called, Serena Lounge. Shortly thereafter he moved on to an independent venture, Star Room in the Hamptons, the world-renowned club known for its A-list celebrity clientele. With the success of the Hamptons under his belt, Charles then opened Star Lounge in New York City, which his Hamptons favorites quickly flocked to.
His interaction with countless guests over the years gave him the invaluable knowledge to understand their desires and taste level. Charles had the opportunity to see firsthand what it takes to measure up to the quality standards sought by socialites, celebrities, and his friends. With that in mind, Ferri wanted to create something special and unique that satisfy this crowds incredibly high standards, and so Star Vodka was born. After careful research, Ferri decided to stick to his roots and develop a world-renowned vodka right here in the United States.
STAR VODKA is an ultra premium distilled product produced in limited quantities for Charles’ private clientele and only the best venues and locations which he hand selects. This is the first in a line of luxury spirits called “Star by Charles Ferri”. This summer, Ferri will take Star Vodka to the next level, strategically unveiling his product to a luxury clientele, starting with a market he knows well, The Hamptons.
Since leaving nightlife and starting his venture in the world of spirits, Charles has formed an exclusive partnership with Liberty Jets and the Walk of Stars in Palm Springs, where he sits on the advisory board. Star Vodka is now the official vodka of both Palm Springs and Las Vegas Walk of Stars.
Charles also sits on the advisory board of Hunter Dixon, an up and coming, women’s fashion line to help in their business development and expansion. They have recently asked Charles to develop a line of couture men’s jackets produced in New York which will compliment their popular blouses for women. His brand will aptly be named Charles Ferri and will co-brand on events with Hunter Dixon.
