Grand Prairie, TX—March 14, 2022—Republic National Distributing Company (RNDC) announces it is partnering with Pernod Ricard (PRUSA) and UBER to make sure the roads are safer this spring. The partnership will sponsor the “Jameson Safe Ride Home” responsible consumption program, gifting $100,000 worth of discounted UBER rides until April 18, 2022.

“At RNDC we are constantly advocating and encouraging responsible consumption, as well as seeking new partnership opportunities to elevate those efforts,” said Nick Mehall, CEO and President of RNDC. “We are happy to support a program that emphasizes our continued focus of reinforcing the importance of responsible consumption and good decision-making while consuming alcohol.”

Riders can claim their $10 UBER voucher by visiting: which will unlock the discounted ride.

Ann Mukherjee, Chairman and CEO of Pernod Ricard North America, said the partnership with RNDC is consistent with Pernod Ricard’s commitment to address drunk driving. “Our premium spirits and wines are enjoyed during convivial moments that unlock the magic of human connection, but there can be no conviviality without responsibility,” she said. “That’s why we must continually work to eliminate the harmful use of alcohol wherever we can.”

RNDC is proud to be in the business of selling and distributing premium alcohol beverages; however, immoderate, or irresponsible use of alcohol can have serious consequences for RNDC customers, suppliers, associates, the company, and the entire industry.

“We’d like to thank Pernod Ricard and Uber for their support of this effort and commitment to keep the roads safe,” said Mehall.
