Retailers and on-premise buyers have 24/7 access to place beverage orders online to you from our website and iOs app. Connecticut licensees and their beverage-buying staff can search, shop and order beer, wine and spirit products quickly and easily through our local market trade-only product website, and via our app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Directly to you, in support of your sales process. We also support sales teams via Pocket Advantage for iPad and more.
“The website is exactly what I was looking for. I’m really impressed with the site… I’ve been using [another site], but it doesn’t have nearly as much information as yours. Bottle shots, item descriptions … it is everything I was looking for.”
Carlos H. DeOliveira, Director of Distilled Spirits, Wine & Spirits Retail Consultants, Inc.
