Aristocrat Group Corp. (OTCBB: ASCC), the brand managers of the award-winning RWB Handcrafted Ultra-Premium Vodka, announced today that the company plans to diversify its product offerings in 2015 in order to capture a larger share of the booming U.S. spirits market.
The spirits industry has enjoyed a period of strong growth in the past five years. Industry publication The Spirits Business reported earlier this month that trends including the “cocktail renaissance,” emergence of the craft distilling sector and growth of middle classes in emerging markets have all driven the spirits industry skyward with a CAGR growth of 4.8 percent from 2008-13.
ASCC debuted RWB Ultra-Premium Handcrafted Vodka to capitalize on that growth. To keep up with changing trends, the company now seeks to add new and diverse brands to its stable of spirits, capturing a greater share of the domestic marketplace in the process.
“Trends come and go in the spirits business,” said ASCC CEO Robert Federowicz. “We’re tremendously proud of how RWB is performing for us, but to maximize our earnings potential for our investors, we need to branch out. It’s a very exciting time to be growing.”
ASCC is already hard at work testing new products, new packaging and new price points for release in 2015. The company has targeted a springtime release for its next product offering.
“RWB Vodka is only the beginning,” Federowicz said.
