Global Spirits USA, an international manufacturer and marketer of wines and spirits, has signed M.S. Walker as its New England distributor of record beginning January 1, 2017.
Through this new partnership, Global Spirits will distribute LEAF Organic Vodka and Khortytsa Vodka throughout the New England region.
M.S. Walker is a wholesale distributor of wines and spirits servicing retail stores, restaurants and hotels. In addition to the company’s Massachusetts headquarters, they own brokerage operations in Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.
“They offer a carefully chosen and diverse portfolio, and they provide the marketing resources needed to make products successful while offering superior service to customers and suppliers,” says Jose Guerrero, northeast regional manager, Global Spirits USA, LLC, in a press release.
“New England is an important vodka market with a growing mixology culture,” adds Guerrero. “LEAF’s packaging, price point and organic origins clearly resonate with today’s consumer lifestyles, while Khortytsa is a quality vodka at a terrific price point that is growing rapidly.”
Currently, there are four items within the Khortytsa line imported to the United States: Khortytsa Platinum, which is the most popular item in the line, retailing for $13.99 per 750-ml; Khortytsa Ice, with a bottle color that changes when chilled, retails for $13.99 per 750-ml; Khortytsa Honey Pepper retails for $13.99 per 750-ml, and Khortytsa De Luxe is a super-premium vodka with a suggested retail of $25.99 for a 750-ml bottle.
LEAF Vodka is sourced from waters around the country. One variety is made from Alaskan Glacial water, while the other derives from Rocky Mountain mineral water. The packaging for LEAF Vodka is designed with the intention to have the contour of a leaf. LEAF Vodka has a recommended shelf price of $18.99 for a 750-ml bottle, and is Certified USDA Organic.
