PORTLAND, Ore., U.S. — Eastside Distilling, Inc. today announced expanded distribution in Florida and California for the Company’s Azuñia Tequila, Burnside Bourbon and Hue-Hue Coffee Rum (pronounced Way-Way) brands. The expansion of these brands leverages the Company’s distribution capabilities in each market, which are led by Eastside’s Redneck Riviera Whiskey and Granny Rich RSV.
In Florida, Republic National Distributing Company (RNDC), in addition to Redneck Riviera Whiskey and Granny Rich RSV, will begin distributing Eastside’s award-winning Azuñia Tequila, Burnside Whiskey and Hue-Hue Coffee Rum products in the fast-growing tequila, bourbon and cordial categories.
In California, where the RNDC/Young’s Market partnership distributes Redneck Riviera Whiskey and Azuñia Tequila in the market, consumers will now be introduced to both the Burnside Bourbon portfolio and Hue-Hue Coffee Rum.
“This expands our suite of products in two of our largest markets,” said Eastside President Robert Manfredonia. “These award-winning brands are all fantastic. I’m sure they will resonate well with the customer bases in Florida and California.”
Hue-Hue Coffee Rum is an exciting new cordial made with cold-brew fair-trade, single-origin Arabica coffee beans grown at the Finca El Paternal Estate in Huehuetenango, Guatemala, and proudly sourced & lightly roasted through Portland Roasting Company. The concentrated brew is then blended with premium silver rum and a trace amount of Demerara sugar in a memorable marriage of flavors, giving Hue-Hue a natural, deep, smooth richness.
Burnside Whiskey is a collection of four expressions meticulously blended straight bourbons and whiskeys ranging in ages and mash-bills all kissed by glorious Oregon White Oak, aka Quercus garryanna.
Azuñia Tequila is a timeless expression of the heritage and traditional processes of our family farm in the heart of Mexico. Rancho Miravalle, our agave farm and tequila distillery, located in the heart of the Tequila Valley, produces our organic, premium, and award-winning 100 percent Weber Blue Agave tequilas through sustainable farming practices and with no additives, nothing artificial, no sugar, and no GMOs. The result is smooth, authentic Azuñia tequila.
