The debut ultra-premium vodka line set to be branded and sold by the Aristocrat Group Corp.’s (OTCBB: ASCC) brand management division, Luxuria Brands, will be produced by Idaho distillers Distilled Resources, Inc. (DRinc), the company announced today.
DRinc will distill, bottle, cap and seal the forthcoming spirit, which will be delivered to TOP Shelf Distributing, a wholly owned subsidiary of ASCC. Robert Federowicz, ASCC’s CEO, traveled to Idaho last week to close the deal.
“DRinc distills neutral spirits from Idaho russet potatoes, organic grains and Idaho winter wheat for use in award winning vodkas, liqueurs, and other specialty spirits,” Federowicz said. “We’ve been tremendously impressed with the craftsmanship this all-American company puts into the spirits they produce. They are more than capable of meeting the high standards for smoothness and flavor that we’ve set for Luxuria Brands’ debut product, and we can’t wait to raise a toast to the first case out the door.”
Another crucial element in DRinc’s selection was the distiller’s ability to produce the vodka on a swift timetable. ASCC has already developed a sophisticated marketing plan for the American-made liquor, which includes a three-picture product placement deal with feature film studio Outpost Media, Inc. Shooting on the first film, Killing Time, wrapped two weeks ago.ASCC sees vodka, America’s best-selling spirit, as the key element to growing its brand management division, Luxuria Brands. The success of the endeavor will allow the company to compete in a highly profitable sector alongside Limited Brands, Inc. (NYSE: LTD), Proctor & Gamble (NYSE: PG), New York & Company, Inc. (NYSE: NWY) and Chico's FAS, Inc. (NYSE: CHS). For more information on this initiative, please visit www.aristocratgroupcorp.com/investors.html.
