Isbre Holding has added another US distributor to a long list for its Norwegian spring water.

The company, which manufactures a namesake water brand, said yesterday (21 February) that it has secured a distribution agreement with Chesapeake Beverage Group in the state of Maryland. Financial details of the agreement 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.
