Bogart’s English Gin secures US distribution
British drinks company Rok Drinks has partnered with Southern Wine and Spirits to launch Bogart’s Real English Gin in the US.
Bogart’s Real English Gin will initially launch in Las Vegas in March before being rolled out to other US markets at a later date.
“To have America’s leading beverages distributor, Southern Wine and Spirits, as our launch partner for Bogart’s English Gin in the critically important US market is a real testament to the excellent quality of gin itself and of its iconic Humphrey Bogart branding,” commented Jonathan Kendrick, chairman of Rok Stars, within which Rok Drinks is the firm’s drinks arm.
Distilled in Cambridge, the gin is infused with coriander, macadamia nuts and citrus zests before being bottled at 45% abv.
Bogart’s launched in the UK last year dedicated to Hollywood legend Humphrey Bogart and has an RRP of £35.
Kevin McCracken, senior vice-president of Southern Win & Spirits, Nevada, said: “We are both delighted and excited to be launching Bogart’s Gin next month and we look forward to working with the team at ROK and our customers to establish this superb gin as a premium market-leader.”
