US: Trump vodka roll out hits Colorado
US beverage group Drinks Americas has rolled out flagship vodka brand Trump into Colorado.
The company, which secured the use of US business magnate Donald Trump's name on the vodka two years ago, said today (12 February) that National Distributing Co. would handle the brand in the state.
Drinks Americas president and CEO J. Patrick Kenny said Colorado is "a significant market opportunity" for the company. "Sales are already substantial and we are having a great deal of success in the ski areas," he added.
Trump vodka, which is produced by the Wanders Distillery in Holland, is sold in 27 US states.
Drinks Americas sells a slew of products in the US, including Willie Nelson's Old Whiskey River Bourbon and actor Paul Newman's range of fruit juices.
