IRVINE, Calif. (PRWEB) December 12, 2007
ShotPak Inc. offers four Ready-to-Drink cocktails, the popular Kamikaze, the Purple Hooter, the Sour Apple and the Lemon Drop. All products are premium vodka based flavored shots. The vodka goes through a quadruple distilling process to meet the required technical standards for the shelf stable formulae.
Bill Marin, President of ShotPak, Inc. commented, "This technology transfer was the next step in growing the Company and expanding into more markets at minimal cost. We will receive a royalty payment per case produced and 15% equity in BPG, thus ensuring our growth beyond the present flavors and straight product line. BPG will manage the total production and marketing of the products."
R. Charles Murray, CEO of BPG further commented, "This technology transfer deal between our Companies complimented the synergies that both Companies have. BPG already sells pouches for wine based cocktails and thus the ShotPak vodka based cocktails will compliment this market segment seamlessly. BPG offers both the patented pouch and machinery thereby ensuring that ShotPak will always be the low cost producer, while having the latest pouch technology available. In addition we plan to continue selling ShotPak products into the international market place where BPG already trades on a daily basis."
