Isbre Holding Corp. has secured further distribution for its bottled Norwegian spring water in the US.

The company said yesterday (15 February) that it has signed a distribution agreement with Capital Beverage Group for the District of Columbia. Financial details of the tie-up were not disclosed.

The agreement follows previous distribution contracts with Gretz Beer Co., Penn Distributors, Wilsbach Distributors and Brewery Products Co, covering the greater Philadelphia, Harrisburg and York, Pennsylvania areas, and with NKS Distributors in Delaware.

Capitol Beverage is an affiliate of NKS Distributors, a wholesaler for Anheuser-Busch, Crown Imports and Boston Beer Co. in the US.

Isbre is in the process of establishing a bottling facility in an unnamed port city in the north-east US. The company plans to ship its water in tanker ships directly from its springs in Norway to the US bottling facility. Isbre said that it is also seeking other global areas of sales for its water products.
