Starting in March, Worldwide Wines, a division of Brescome Barton, will handle CT distribution and Horizon Beverage Company will lead the charge in RI. With this expansion, Brockmans’ full market list will now encompass Massachusetts, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island and New York.
“The distinct character of our award-winning gin has seen tremendous success in Massachusetts and New Jersey and has exceeded expectations during our soft launch in New York City,” mentions Bob Fowkes, Director and Co-Founder of Brockmans Gin. “The positive response we have received makes us confident that we are ready to expand to Connecticut and Rhode Island and we look forward to partnering with Worldwide Wines and Horizon Beverage to replicate Brockmans’ success in these new markets.”
Both Worldwide Wines and Horizon Beverage Company will work closely with a full-time Brockmans State Market Manager, who will be charged with guiding sales efforts and coordinating sampling and educational training in both states.
