About Resolute Venture Partners
Resolute Venture Partners is the newest angel investment vehicle in a family of funds created by Clayton Associates. Following the start of Nashville-based Rolling Hills Ventures in 2013, Resolute is one of only a few institutional groups in the United States to take the formal processes and resources of later-stage venture capital firms and apply those to the traditionally unstructured arena of early-stage angel investing.

California-based Haus has raised $4.5 million in seed funding for its direct-to-consumer alcohol subscription service that promises members healthier ingredients, less alcohol, and a more transparent distribution process. The round included over 10 funds and 100 individual members contributing, according to TechCrunch , and included contributions from Haystack Ventures, Shrug Capital, Resolute Venture Partners, and Work Life Ventures, among others. Haus , which was founded by married couple Helena Price Hambrecht and Woody Hambrecht, offers an alcohol subscription service that functions much like a traditional wine club — members pay a monthly fee and receive discounted bottles of spirits delivered directly to their door. The company’s first product is an apértif, which Price Hambrecht and Hambrecht make on their farm in Sonoma County, California. Members can receive one bottle per month for $35, two for $63, or six for $144. Where Haus differs from other alcohol subscription services is in the products it offers. The founders were inspired to start Haus in order to offer a more health-conscious alcohol product than what one normally finds in-store and via subscription clubs. To that end, the company’s apéritif drink uses only natural ingredients and has a lower ABV (alcohol by volume) than many spirits: 15 percent compared to the 35 to 45 percent found in most regular spirits. That lower ABV content also allows Haus to ship their product directly to consumers in certain states, according to TechCrunch: “Woody, an experienced winemaker, identified a loophole that allows distributors to ship alcohol direct-to-consumer if the product is made mostly from grapes and is under 24% alcohol.” At present, the apéritif concept is less popular in the U.S. than hard liquor or wine, but the lighter alcohol content speaks to the growing number of consumers interested in low- or no-alcohol beverages. And with more traditional services like Thirstie and Drizly already popular in the U.S., Haus’ emphasis on flavor and wellness could very well help it stand out from other alcohol delivery brands.
