Allied Domecq Spirits & Wine North America has announced two new distribution deals. The drinks group has agreed to give two different companies exclusive distribution rights in different areas of the US.

Southern Wine & Spirits of America, Inc. (SWS) will have the exclusive distribution rights to Allied Domecq's full portfolio of spirits and wine brands in the states of Arizona, Kentucky and Pennsylvania, while providing a contract extension in South Carolina. National Distributing Company (NDC), meanwhile, has been granted exclusive distribution rights to Allied Domecq's spirits and wine ranges in Colorado.

In a joint statement, Jim Clerkin, president of Allied Domecq Spirits, North America, and Bill Newlands, president of Allied Domecq Wines, USA, said, "SWS was selected because it is the best in market with the best business assets for our brands. We selected NDC to exclusively represent our portfolio based on the strong performance and consistent track record established by NDC in previous years."

"Allied Domecq's dynamic portfolio of spirits and wine brands generate significant value to our business," said Wayne Chaplin, president of SWS. "Allied Domecq is one of the leading spirits and wine suppliers in the industry and this long-term relationship will allow our focused sales force to represent a terrific portfolio of brands."

Jay Davis, chairman and CEO of NDC, said: "Allied Domecq is one of the leading spirits and wine suppliers in the industry and this long-term relationship will allow our committed sales force to represent a terrific portfolio of brands. More importantly, Allied Domecq and NDC have a longstanding relationship built on integrity and loyalty.  The continuation of this strong relationship ensures no disruptions for our entire customer base."
