Connecticut Distributors, Inc. (CDI), added several new brands. From Japan, Tenjaku Gin, 37.5% ABV, is made with the maceration of more than 10 Japanese botanicals, including yuzu, peach, green tea and Japanese pepper, distilled London Dry style with some of the purest waters from the Mount Fuji basin. From Mexico comes an extension of the premium 100% agave Cazadores Tequila line. Ready-to-serve cocktails, available in Margarita and Paloma, are made with award-winning 100% agave Cazadores Tequila Blanco, no artificial flavors, 100% natural ingredients, at 12.5% ABV. Jameson Whiskey added ready-to-drink canned cocktails in two new flavors, joining Ginger & Lime. At 5% ABV, Lemonade and Cola each feature a perfectly mixed combination of Jameson Irish Whiskey to be enjoyed chilled. Three CDI exclusives also join new offerings: Coppola Diamond Collection Prosecco and Prosecco Rosé, each an acclaimed premium wine from the award-winning range. Bota Box’s newest addition, Bota’Rita, adds agave nectar, real lime juice and natural strawberry flavors to its award-winning Bota Box wine for a sweet and zesty, all-natural citrus flavor in Strawberry Margarita or available in Classic Lime Margarita, both packaged in a stay-fresh, easy-pour 1.5-liter box. Escarpment wines, new from Delicato, are created by Winemaker Tim Bourne and Viticulturist Rowan Hoskins from fruit entirely originating from the team’s alluvial Martinborough, New Zealand, vineyards. From Sausalito, California, Dough Ball cookie dough-flavored premium whiskey, 70% ABV, offers a smooth cookie finish in a versatile spirit to be served as a shot, hot, chilled, in cocktails or over dessert.
