US-based craft spirits producer Eastside Distilling has expanded the distribution footprint of its brands, including Azuñia Tequila, Burnside Bourbon and Hue-Hue Coffee Rum, into Florida and California.

The three brands will make use of Eastside Distilling’s distribution capabilities in each market.

Eastside Distilling president Robert Manfredonia said: “This expands our suite of products in two of our largest markets.

“These award-winning brands are all fantastic. I’m sure they will resonate well with the customer bases in Florida and California.”

Hue-Hue Coffee Rum is a cold-brew produced using fair-trade, single-origin Arabica coffee beans and blended with premium silver rum, sweetened with a trace amount of Demerara sugar.

Burnside Whiskey is a blend of four expressions, including blended straight bourbons and whiskeys ranging in ages and mash-bills.

Azuñia Tequila, produced using sustainable farming practices, contains no additives, artificial ingredients, sugar or GMOs.

Republic National Distributing Company (RNDC) will distribute Azuñia Tequila, Burnside Whiskey and Hue-Hue Coffee Rum products in Florida along with Redneck Riviera Whiskey and Granny Rich RSV.

By expanding the distribution in the Florida market, Eastside Distilling intends to capitalise on the growth of tequila, bourbon and cordial categories.

In California, RNDC / Young’s Market partnership will add to Burnside Bourbon and Hue-Hue Coffee Rum to its distribution portfolio, which already includes Redneck Riviera Whiskey and Azuñia Tequila.

Last September, Eastside Distilling acquired Azuñia Tequila from Intersect Beverage.

Azuñia’s portfolio includes Blanco Organic Tequila, Reposado Organic Tequila, Añejo Tequila, and Azuñia Black Tequila, on sale at on-premise locations across western and south-eastern US.
