January 18, 2012
– Drinks Americas Holdings, Ltd., ("Drinks") (OTCBB: DKAMD.OB - News), a leading developer and marketer of beverage products, is pleased to announce that it has appointed Republic National Distributing Company for its fast growing KAH® Tequila in the State of Florida. Drinks Americas has expanded KAH® Tequila to 43 markets since acquiring the license and distribution rights from its transaction with Worldwide Beverage Imports, LLC., in June of 2011.
Bill Wickham, V.P. Director of Marketing for RNDC Florida, stated, "The addition of KAH® Tequila to our Republic National Distributing Company of Florida portfolio is very exciting. The KAH® brand has proven to be a great addition to retailers' tequila category sales, creating a great deal of excitement. We anticipate that KAH® will be an important factor in the growing tequila category in Florida and are happy to join with Drinks Americas in bringing it to market."
Voted "Best of the Best" by Tequila.net, and winning multiple awards at The Spirits International Prestige Competition and The Spirits of Mexico Competition, KAH® Tequila was designed to pay reverence and honor to Mexico and its people. The word KAH translates to "life" in the ancient Mayan language. Every bottle is an individual, hand-crafted work of art. While the bottle captures that enduring spirit, so does the Tequila inside, as KAH®'s distillers transform hand-selected 100% Blue agave into lively Blanco, Reposado and Anejo and Extra Aged Anejo varieties that are both certified organic and Kosher.
