About Our Guest   

Fior Scotch is the only U.S. veteran-owned Scotch, and only Black-owned Scotch, available in the market. Founded by Retired Marine Major Eric Dominijanni, a decorated officer with three tours in Iraq and two in Okinawa, Fior isn’t just an exceptional spirit; it’s a tribute to service and community.

After a distinguished 20-year military career, he started to decant the remaining drams of particularly good scotches from his collection into what would become his Infinity Bottle. Eventually, the blend became so good that he didnt want to change it. To fulfill his dream, Major Dominijanni tapped an industry expert to help recreate it. What started as a personal experiment turned into Fior, a Scotch that boasts a clean and balanced flavor profile.
