Puerto de Indias, a strawberry gin from Seville, Spain, has established a team of state managers to guide the launch and expansion of the company’s gin in the U.S.
This February, Puerto de Indias Strawberry Gin will arrive stateside in New York, Florida and Illinois. The newly established team, lead by industry veteran Mike Ginley, includes two state managers in both the New York and Florida markets and one state manager in Illinois. In their role, the state managers will liaise with the Southern Glazers Wine & Spirits distributor team to introduce and develop the brand in the three launch markets.
“I am thrilled to lead this enthusiastic team of Puerto de Indias state managers at this exciting time,” said Ginley. “2019 marks the debut of this game-changing gin in the U.S. Our team has a breadth and depth of industry experience that has allowed us to hit the ground running. We are thrilled to play a key role in establishing the brand’s footprint beginning in FL, NY & IL with plans to expand to new markets throughout the year.”
Puerto de Indias is a blend of citrus and juniper gin with distilled strawberries. The result is a gin. Puerto de Indias is distributed by Southern Glazers Wine & Spirits. It retails for a suggested price of $26.99 per 750-ml bottle.
