"The opportunity to represent PROOF with its super-premium quality and exceptional taste, along with its branding and packaging, is the foundation for tremendous success," says Robert Lipman, Chairman & CEO of Lipman Brothers, LLC.

PROOF's Chief Commercial Officer, Rick Gillis, echoes Lipman's enthusiasm. "We are thrilled and honored to partner with Lipman Brothers to be the very first wholesaler in Tennessee to launch PROOF Hard Ice Cream.
