NEW YORK – Following the successful launch in key US markets, LIQS Cocktail Shot announced today that it is going International, and will begin shipping into both Alberta and British Columbia immediately.
Dan Worth brands, which currently imports brands such as Ole Smoky® Tennessee Moonshine, has been retained to handle the sales and marketing efforts in Canada.
“We are excited to be partnering up for the launch of LIQS shots in Canada,” said Alan Danvers, CEO of Dan Worth Brands. “This new brand will bring a natural product and a premium feel to the individual shot market — something that the category has been lacking. LIQS shots will be a great revenue driver for the retailer as well as offering a great tasting, convenient experience for the consumer. It’s a win-win.”
Since LIQS’ debut in the Fall of 2013, the company has been on the forefront of the growing industry trend to change retailer’s and consumer’s perceptions about pre-mixed cocktails. LIQS is the first product of its kind to focus on quality as much as convenience. Its line of premium “Cocktail Shots” are fresh tasting, mixology inspired, portable, foil-sealed shots that can be sipped or shot anywhere, anytime.
In addition to geographic expansion, the company has extended its flavor line-up and added “Lemon Drop,” to its current portfolio of flavors. Arguably the most popular shot in America, LIQS uses Italian lemons and raw sugar cane to create its version of this sinfully delicious sweet & sour classic.
Following LIQS debut in Florida (SWS), the duo quickly introduced their portable shots to Massachusetts (United) and Texas (Glazers) this past September.
Entrepreneurs Harley Bauer and Michael Glickman created LIQS to fill a void in the marketplace for a convenient way to enjoy the superior cocktails consumers have grown accustomed to due to the recent boom in mixology bars.
LIQS are made from premium spirits (6x distilled vodka and 99% agave tequila) and all-natural flavors; plus they are low calorie, low sugar, Kosher, and proudly Made in the USA. LIQS’ popular flavors include Tequila Cinnamon Orange (27.5% abv), Vodka Lychee Grapefruit (22.5% abv), Vodka Kamikaze (22.5% abv), Vodka Cucumber Lime (22.5% abv) and Vodka Lemon Drop (22.5% abv).
Available in single flavor three-packs, LIQS Cocktail Shots retail for $7.99 in the US. LIQS are also available for online purchase (domestic only) at LIQSshot.com as well as in liquor stores, hotels and bars/clubs throughout Florida, Texas, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
