Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) July 22, 2009
July 22, 2009 - With the global launch in Canada set for National Tequila Day on July 24th, the kick off of the expanded partnership with Republic National Distributing Company across Texas, and recent addition of the gold medal at the 2009 San Francisco Spirit Competition's to their collection, it is safe to say that the CRUZ del Sol Tequila (CRUZ Tequila) family is enjoying another productive year.
"Remaining focused on delivering the best spirit possible and signing on with top distributors has been the key to our success," remarks Joseph Pep Katcher, President of CRUZ Tequila. "Despite this simple statement our leadership team receives many inquiries asking how spirit producers and distributors pick the best partners to ensure global product expansions are successful in today's economy." In response, CRUZ Tequila interviewed their distribution partners to get candid answers and have included highlights that follow. "Canadians have not had the pleasure of experiencing the sophisticated taste profile that CRUZ Tequila possesses," states Paul Charabin, General Manager of PB Beverages. "Knowing our market, discovering the research that went into the making of their hand crafted reposado, and tasting the results, has made CRUZ a strategic and timely addition to our portfolio."
From the domestic market, our partners at Republic National Distributing Company continue to give us positive feedback as we move through the southwest," adds Todd Nelson, Vice President of CRUZ Tequila. "They have been pleased with our integrated programs that include in-store cocktail demonstrations and tastings, several signage platforms, a growing social media presence, and targeted advertising with unique drink recipes. In a nutshell, our program goals are meant to introduce shoppers to the versatility of our award winning spirit, so that they can enjoy bringing back an authentic cocktail culture."
