MODESTO, Calif., Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As the Oakland Raiders kick off at home this Sunday, adult fans will once again have a smooth selection at Coliseum bars. Today, New Amsterdam Spirits announces the continuation of its sponsorship of the Oakland Raiders.

"New Amsterdam is delighted to further our partnership with the Oakland Raiders," said Gerard Thoukis, Senior Director of Marketing for New Amsterdam Spirits. "As another California-based organization, we hope to give the team's fans the best sporting experience possible, and we look forward to an exciting season."

In addition to a New Amsterdam branded bar in the East Side Club section, the sponsorship also includes special events and the use of official team marks and logos. New Amsterdam's partnership with the Raiders corresponds with sponsorship agreements with three additional professional football teams this year.

"Our Raider Nation deserves nothing less than the best when it comes to the offerings within the Coliseum," said the Oakland Raiders. "Having New Amsterdam on our team gives Raiders fans a premium choice as they cheer the Silver and Black on at home games."

New Amsterdam Gin's unique recipe sets it apart from other gins in its flavor and smoothness. Crafted in a refined style with subtle citrus flavors and a long, silky finish, the recipe blends botanicals with citrus elements and a light touch of juniper to create an unparalleled, smooth taste. New Amsterdam Vodka, a premium vodka made from the finest quality grains, is five times distilled for unparalleled smoothness. New Amsterdam Vodka starts with a soft, full-bodied sensation on the palate and has a clean finish. New Amsterdam Spirits are smooth enough to enjoy straight, yet distinctive enough to hold their own in any cocktail.
