CDI Launches New Spirits for Spring

By March 30, 2023Connecticut, Top News

Connecticut Distributors, Inc. (CDI), welcomed guests for several new brand launches in February. Mercer + Prince Canadian Whiskey, founded by rapper A$AP Rocky, was a highlight of a recent meeting held with CDI’s Anchor Division. The whiskey, which is twice-distilled in Coffey stills and aged for a minimum of four years in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels, offers sweet aromatics. Additionally, it is influenced with Japanese mizunara oak to develop baking spice character. Hendrick’s Flora Adora Gin also launched as the newest offering from the William Grant & Sons popular gin brand. Flora Adora botanicals offers lush green and sweet floral characteristics, lengthening the juniper and coriander backbone of Hendrick’s. CDI’s New England Division welcomed White Claw Vodka Triple Wave Filtered, 40% ABV, made with 100% American grain, five-times-distilled. Each vodka expression is filtered three times using pressure equal to a 30-foot wave for a smoother finish. It’s available in three 30% ABV flavored vodkas: Black Cherry, Mango and Pineapple. The division also welcomed a team from Infinium Spirits for a portfolio training, including Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey, Corralejo Tequila, Templeton Rye, Crystal Head Vodka, Zaya Rum, Tears of Llorona Extra Añejo Tequila, Zaya Gran Reserva 16 Year Rum and Seagram’s Vodka.
