Southern California is catching on to the latest trend in alcohol distribution. ShotPak Inc. (Pink Sheets: SHTP.PK), which packages several different types of liquors in to a portable pack, announced today that the company sold a record high number of ShotPaks in the first retail store to carry the product. Emelio’s, a Long Beach, CA retail store, sold over 3,200 units of the portable ShotPaks, and one can be certain that once even more retailers around the country catch on, other consumers will take advantage of the benefits ShotPak delivers.

ShotPak has definitely developed a product that not only delivers quality alcohol, but the product has the ability to go more places than ever thought possible. These small, durable, sealed packs have the ability to fit in pockets and jackets without the risk of breaking. This allows you to buy a few shots without having to worry about filling up a flask, or finding a way to store small amounts of alcohol for consumption.

The company has over 50 years of experience in the distilling business and assures that the quality of the alcohol is superb, and that they will be frontrunners in the single serve ready to drink industry. As a testament to the product, I have found that these packs are easy to consume and do in fact have a pleasing taste.

Sunday, July 22nd, 2007

Ignus Hattingh, CEO of Shotpak Inc. (Other OTC:SHTP.PK – News), was featured on Market News First in an exclusive live interview (http://files.mn1.com/vpodcast/rw_20070620_1301_vid_rha_shtp.mov) with MN1′s Rich Hancock. The interview took place on June 20, 2007 at 1:00PM CDT. MN1 also wrote a feature story (http://feeds.mn1.com/shotpak__liquor_on_the_go.htm) about SHTP that can be viewed on its website.

Hattingh offered some stirring words in the interview focusing on the company’s innovative product line.

“We will be the first-ever company to launch a six-pack of vodka,” said Hattingh.

SHTP has perfected a series of individually packed “shots” of distilled spirits — whiskey, rum, vodka, tequila and four different kinds of mixed drinks — that are packaged in what the company calls “revolutionary patented bottle-shaped recyclable stand-up pouches.”

“They’re plastic, not glass, so they won’t break,” says Hattingh. “And their unique design allows the product to stand on its own.”

While other companies simply get away with selling liquor-flavored malt beverages that taste like their stronger cousins, SHTP actually sells whiskey, vodka or whatever the shot-pack says on the label.
