Alonzo Pierce, CEO of Top Shelf Brands Holdings, Inc. (a Nevada Corporation) (OTCBB: DKTS), is pleased to announce that the company has partnered with Big Tent Group, a Louisville-based beverage development company, to promote Besado Tequila as well as entire line of Top Shelf Brands’ premium alcoholic beverages.
Big Tent Group and its affiliates possess a wealth of resources, unparalleled in the alcohol beverage, entertainment, and production industries. Big Tent Group has consistently gained the attention of consumers worldwide by utilizing celebrities to grab notoriety, acquire political support and to, of course, increase sales. Big Tent Group has an outstanding track record of successfully growing sales and gaining global exposure for its partners in the alcohol beverage industry (ABI).
“We are very excited about working with Alonzo, as his vision for Top Shelf Brands is right in line with how we best see fit to market our products and successfully reach the masses in today’s fast-paced, high tech world,” said Big Tent Group co-founder Jeff Freiberger. “We will be transparent in our efforts and will provide the shareholders of Top Shelf Brands updates on our celebrity endorsements, increases in sales volume and any developments that will have an impact on the company bottom line.”
For Pierce, this was clearly a “now and later” opportunity. With Besado Tequila set to hit the market, pending label approval, Big Tent will play an integral part in helping grab an immediate share of the market for this cutting edge, erotic herbal infused tequila. From a future development standpoint, Big Tent will have a synergistic role in securing a bright future for Top Shelf Brands.
“What can I say, this is the perfect partnership for Top Shelf Brands,” Pierce said. “Big Tent has a tremendous reputation for designing and implementing successful branding and sales campaigns and this fills an obvious need for Top Shelf with the impending release of our Besado Tequila.”
Frieberger and his partners took great care in building an industry “dream team,” featuring some of the best marketers, distribution relationship managers, and sales staff in the industry. Frieberger is quite confident that Big Tent Group brings to the partnership the experience that will benefit Top Shelf Brands for many years to come.
“The majority of our team have been in the industry for many years and have held senior positions at some of the most successful Spirits companies in the world,” Frieberger said. “Sales is the ultimate measurement tool and we are the best, bar none, at creating increases in sales volume for our brands, new or existing. Whether it’s promoting a product that has sold a few thousand cases in a year or a few hundred thousand, I can tell you with confidence that we have produced results. One thing is for certain that growth is inevitable with our newly formed partnership with Top Shelf Brands.”
