The Aristocrat Group Corp. (OTCBB:ASCC) will begin drafting plans for a possible international expansion in the distribution of its signature brand, RWB Handcrafted Ultra-Premium Vodka, following productive business meetings in Canada this month.
Vodka is the most popular distilled spirit in Canada. Industry association Spirits Canada announced that vodka surpassed whiskey as the largest volume category in 2010. As one of the world’s top markets for vodka, Canada represents a crucial North American expansion target as ASCC works to build its brands beyond the United States.
“We have engaged multiple Canadian distributors about the possibility of bringing RWB Vodka and other spirits to Canada,” said ASCC CEO Robert Federowicz. “We are getting some strong interest based on the impressive growth of the brand over the past couple of years. The buzz about RWB Vodka has been building, and now it can be heard as far north as Montreal and Vancouver.”
ASCC is making plans for dramatic growth in 2015 behind the continued success of RWB as well as a closely guarded new product that the company expects to debut this spring. Last week, ASCC announced that it was seeking out expanded warehouse space and additional fleet vehicles to help satisfy growing demand for its spirit brands.
RWB Handcrafted Ultra-Premium Vodka is already available at hundreds of retail locations and online. Soon, the company hopes to boost its business dramatically by unveiling a new brand this spring poised to offer consumers an unprecedented level of convenience—creating a whole new market segment in the process.
