A June 5 virtual sales meeting greeted three new brands to the Connecticut Distributors, Inc. (CDI) portfolio. California’s Josh Cellars released its Josh Bourbon Barrel Cabernet. Aged in bourbon barrels, the deep red cabernet exudes caramel, vanilla and smooth whiskey flavors alongside the classic dark berry and chocolate with rich and complex notes of blackberry, dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee and sweet burnt toffee on the nose. Plume & Petal offers a range of three premium vodkas infused with delicate fresh fruit, botanicals and tea flavors with just a hint of honey. Made with all-natural flavors, no artificial sweeteners, lower alcohol and calories, Plume & Petal’s three flavors include Peach Wave, Lemon Drift and Cucumber Splash. Gray Whale Gin, new to both the CDI and Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits portfolios, was founded by Marsh and Jan Mokhtari. Gray Whale Gin celebrates the California coastline and its unique and bountiful botanicals that follow the same path as the majestic gray whale’s 12,000-mile migratory journey.
