Beginning in April, Brockmans Gin will open distribution to the entire state of New York through its partnership with industry leader, Opici Family Distributing. This growth follows the brand’s success during its exploratory introduction in select New York City accounts last fall. Already prospering in top Manhattan venues, Brockmans has made its way onto several menus in the city’s cocktail scene. With Opici, the brand will continue to target premium on- and off-premise accounts statewide.
“Since our U.S. launch just over a year ago, we’ve made quite a wave in the new-style gin and craft spirits categories,” comments Bob Fowkes, Director and Co-Founder of Brockmans Gin. “With an innovative taste profile, Brockmans has been extremely well received in accounts, at industry competitions and amongst consumers. We’re thrilled to continue this momentum with a larger presence in New York.”
Brockmans’ distribution will be guided by bar Family Distributing, a family owned company with over 80 years industry expertise. Opici specializes in distributing wines and super-premium spirits throughout Metro and Upstate New York. “Brockmans Gin has seen tremendous success in its initial accounts throughout the city, and we look forward to being a partner to grow this presence even further throughout the state,” says Bill O’Neil, Vice President Sales Metro NY, Opici Family Distributing.
Opici will work closely with Brockmans’ New York Market Managers to assist in the execution of tastings at retail and on-premise accounts, trainings and events.
Brockmans Gin will be available in 750 mL at an SRP of $34.99. For more information, visit www.brockmansgin.com.
