They and Beverage Pouch Group have more than 50 years of combined expertise in alcohol distilling, distribution and field marketing, retail placement, promotion and consumer trial and adoption.
SHOT Spirits Corporation has an investment and technical agreement for 15 percent in The Beverage Pouch Group LLC (BPG). The Beverage Pouch Group LLC is a member of the PPi Technologies Global Group of companies. The PPi Technologies Global Group offers StandUp pouch and tray machinery solutions including consumables and end-of-line equipment. The PPi Technologies Global Group through their PouchPac™ Innovations LLC division has several joint and individual patents. The Beverage Pouch Group offers through ShotPaQ® the ShotPak® Brand of ready-to-drink shots without the glass. They sell spirits and cocktails in a patented StandUp pouch with easy tear openings.
SHOT Spirits Corporation and Beverage Pouch Group offer premium vodka, rum flavored drinks and four premium distilled STR8UP® spirits – Rum, Vodka, Whisky, and Tequila. They also have four ready-to-drink cocktails called Kamikaze, Purple Hooter, Lemon Drop, and Sour Apple. Four new cocktails and a packaging contract for California Blue® Tequilas and Buzz-A-Rita® cocktails are on the horizon for 2009. SHOT Spirits will next invest in distilleries and water plants. They also receive a royalty per ShotPak® case sold by BPG and a dividend from BPG’s yearly profits.
Last Tuesday, The Beverage Pouch Group announced that SHOT Spirits Corporation would benefit as BPG begins shipping the ShotPak® brand cocktails to Jamaica in time for the holiday season. They will also ship into Canada after the New Year. The Beverage Pouch Group and the ShotPak® brand are entering a market niche by delivering into new export markets where the original recipes are unknown or where all the ingredients are unavailable.
