ASCC Advances Talks with Leading Distiller to Produce New Vodka
MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla. -- January 24, 2013
The Aristocrat Group Corp. (OTCBB: ASCC) took a crucial step toward initiating
production of its new vodka when the Company’s executive leadership met with
one of the nation’s top custom distilleries to discuss a potential deal.
ASCC has already developed a sophisticated marketing plan for the white
liquor, which includes a three-picture product placement deal with feature
film studio Outpost Media, Inc. All that remains is to begin production.
“With our new vodka set to make its big-screen debut in a matter of months,
we’re moving very quickly to have the product on store shelves by the time the
film is released,” said ASCC CEO Robert Federowicz, who succeeded outgoing
executive Cindy Morrissey at the beginning of the year. “We’ve been very
impressed by this distiller’s attention to quality and keen understanding of
the domestic spirits market, and we’re hopeful we can have a deal struck
Vodka is America’s top-selling liquor, with sales accounting for nearly a
third of the country’s total distilled spirits market. Demand is so strong, in
fact, that despite the recession, sales actually grew by 13.9 million cases
between 2004 and 2009 to reach 58.4 million, according to a report last year
by just-drinks and IWSR.
It isn’t just the top brands making headlines in recent years, either. A small
English distiller that produces only 1,000 bottles a week took home honors for
the world’s best vodka at the 2010 San Francisco World Spirits Competition in
“The market for vodka is growing at every level, but particularly for
super-premium vodkas,” Brown said. “With our business plan, we won’t have to
compete with Smirnoff to be successful.”
With these favorable conditions in mind, ASCC sees vodka as the key element to
growing its brand management business. The success of the endeavor will allow
the company to compete in a highly profitable sector alongside Limited Brands,
Inc. (LTD), Proctor & Gamble (PG), New York & Company, Inc. (NWY) and Chico's
FAS, Inc. (CHS).
