"We continue to increase net sales year-over-year, bringing us closer to profitability. The positive momentum in our business reflects the strength of our portfolio of premium brands, such as Gosling’s rum and Jefferson’s Bourbons,” stated Richard J. Lampen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Castle Brands. “We are pleased with the growth our brands are experiencing due to our experienced sales team, growing points of distribution and effective marketing programs. We are selectively pursuing new brands, joint ventures and acquisitions in an effort to further enhance our portfolio.”

“The strong organic growth of our spirits business, coupled with effective cost control efforts, led to improved results in the quarter. Jefferson’s in particular has seen growth accelerate with the launch of Jefferson’s Rye, the continued expansion of our barrel program and the addition of listings in important Control States,” stated John Glover, Chief Operating Officer of Castle Brands.
