MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Following strong domestic sales in October, Aristocrat Group Corp. (OTCBB:ASCC) has scheduled its first international shipment of RWB Ultra-Premium Handcrafted Vodka to British Columbia-based partner The Westcoast Spirits Company Limited.
“RWB Vodka has gained significant momentum domestically in the last few months. Based on our recent sales figures for October, this is the ideal time to take the next step into international distribution, and we’re starting with Canada,” ASCC CEO Robert Federowicz said. “ASCC’s Canadian partner Westcoast Spirits will facilitate distribution of our flagship award-winning vodka into select Western Canadian retail outlets. Canada as a whole had a $5.4 billion spirits market last year and we’re confident this will be the first of many footprints we make into the market there.”
In 2013, Canada’s largest share of imported spirits came from the United States (27.3%) and vodka accounted for 24% of total spirit sales in the country.
Handcrafted, American-made RWB Ultra-Premium Handcrafted Vodka, which is now available in more than 100 clubs, bars and restaurants and in excess of 30 retail locations, is made with the highest-quality Idaho potatoes and pure mountain spring water and then refined by a five-stage filtration system that produces a gluten-free high-class vodka without the high-class price.
