Cocktail Crate LLC, a leading craft cocktail mixer company based in New York City, is pleased to announce distribution in both Target and Sam’s Club beginning in September and November, respectively. Target will feature the flavors Ginger Bee, Spiced Old Fashioned, Sriracha Margarita, and Maple Whiskey Sour in approximately 300 locations. Sam’s Club will be selling a unique 3 pack gift box containing Spiced Old Fashioned, Ginger Bee, and Maple Whiskey Sour in 10 clubs in the Southwest.
