BODY, the female-founded, lower-proof vodka brand created by entrepreneur Jilly Hendrix, announced its partnership with Next Century Spirits, a tech-enabled spirits company with a distributor network spanning the country. Just two months after launching, BODY is the first Next Century Spirits third party customer to become integrated into their brand portfolio, Next Century Brand Group.
BODY’s partnership with Next Century Spirits allows for vertical integration and expansion across the United States, with launch markets for the first six months targeting AZ, CA, CO, CT, FL, MI, NJ, NY, NC, TN, and TX. Next Century Spirits will support BODY in distribution expansion, inventory management and logistics, in market execution, and sales growth.
“Body Vodka has been amazing to work with from the minute I met them with their unmet passion and drive to make this brand successful at all costs.” Anthony Moniello, Co-CEO NCS, said. “We know that being able to provide our sales expertise, industry consulting experience and execution abilities in addition with our production, we can support Body to become the full-bodied, light vodka for the more conscious consumer for years to come.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with Next Century Spirits to introduce BODY to even more consumers throughout the country,” said Jilly Hendrix, Founder and CEO of BODY. “As a new brand entering the growing low-proof spirits space, this partnership allows us to rapidly expand the national presence of our premium, low-ABV vodka.”
BODY (SRP $24.99/bottle) is a female-founded and operated brand with a mission to redefine the drinking experience. BODY vodka has 25% less alcohol than standard 80-proof vodka, and is a ten-times distilled, sustainable spirit that has just a touch of 100% organic, pure bee-pollinated agave nectar. It is made with non-GMO Indiana corn and water softened by limestone, leaving it alkaline with a light, silky smooth taste.
