Rivulet™ Artisan Pecan Liqueur Expands Into Tennessee And Georgia
LOUISVILLE, Kentucky – December 4, 2014 – Rivulet Artisan Pecan Liqueur is excited to announce the expansion of its widely decorated small-batch artisan liqueur into Tennessee and Georgia after its highly successful introduction into stores, bars and restaurants throughout the state of Kentucky. Rivulet was introduced into Kentucky in July of this year, and it has already become one of the fastest growing spirits in the state. Rivulet will partner with Lipman Brothers Distributing Company in Nashville, Knoxville, and the Chattanooga markets of Tennessee. In Georgia, Rivulet will partner with National Distributing Company of Georgia statewide.
Rivulet began distribution through a strong partnership statewide with Republic National Distributing Company (RNDC) of Kentucky. “Rivulet Liqueur is a unique luxury spirit product, and one which fits well with our premium portfolio throughout the state. We have received strong support from the retail trade, as well as fine bars and restaurants throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky,” said Stacy Lauter, director of marketing for RNDC in Kentucky. “Rivulet has been one of the most successful introductions we have had,” said Lauter. Rivulet is selling out of stores, especially when consumers get a chance to taste the quality of this small-batch spirit!” RNDC is America’s premier wine and spirit wholesale distributor, with market coverage in 22 states and the District of Columbia.
“We have been very pleased with the introduction of Rivulet into our home market of Kentucky,” said James B. Marshall, the managing director of C88 Holdings, LLC, the producer of Rivulet Artisan Pecan Liqueur. “We know that consumers and the trade in Kentucky have become accustomed to tasting and purchasing the finest small batch spirits available, certainly because of all the distilling and barrel aging expertise in this great state. We are obviously quite proud of our quality story, and now consumers in Tennessee and Georgia will be able to make Rivulet part of their luxury spirits repertoire,” he said. Rivulet combines the finest slow-distilled brandy, gently aged to perfection in small oak casks, with a proprietary recipe that extracts the delicate pecan flavor profile that makes our liqueur so special. “We spent years perfecting just the right balance of brandy, pecans, and our proprietary special ingredients to achieve what we believe is a uniquely delicate luxury liqueur,” said Marshall.
Rivulet is part of the craft spirits renaissance that has positioned Louisville as a world-class hub for developing unique spirits, including liqueurs, bourbons, and craft spirits of all kinds. At an event earlier this year, Mayor Greg Fischer, mayor of the City of Louisville, was on hand to address the crowd and commemorate the launch of Louisville’s newest local craft spirit. Fischer noted, “One of our key strategic cornerstones is building Louisville into one of the world’s best culinary and spirits cities. Rivulet Artisan Pecan Liqueur is part of this initiative to strengthen our city’s competitive advantage towards economic development, and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of the announcement of this new small-batch luxury spirit from Louisville.”
