James Two Brother’s Distillers of Ocala, Florida, has signed a new contract with a distributor having extensive background and distribution coverage in the alcohol beverage industry. Ken Daley, president of Tri-Eagle Sales was seeking to expand their already successful craft beer distribution in Florida with a craft spirit, and agreed to add the three varieties of both craft rum and whiskey J2B currently offers.
“We have seen some real challenges since our opening in 2018,” said Paul L. James. “After a successful retail launch with an Orlando distributor, we were unable to reach local restaurants, retail liquor stores and bars because of state restrictions. Fortunately, we were well received by the folks at Tri-Eagle Sales, whose core business is marketing, sales and distribution of a full line of Anheuser-Busch products.”
Daley recognized that aside from the distinct advantages there are in spirits distribution, supporting local business and the smaller scale craft beverages is crucial. And although challenging, it is in keeping with Tri-Eagle’s business model to encourage and participate in the local economy dynamically. Paul and his son Taylor indicated they are in the process now of reaching out locally with the rest of the Tri-Eagle Sales team to their already established customer base.
