DC Brands International Receives PO From LA Distributor

DENVER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 26, 2007 -- At the close of business today, DC Brands International (PINKSHEETS: DCBI) announced they have received their initial purchase order from a Los Angeles based distributor. This is the company the President and VP of Sales announced they were going to meet with on March 15, 2007. AMCOM, which is mega sized distributor located in City of Industry, CA, has submitted their initial PO today for a full container (1,530 cases) with a mix of both Dickens Energy Cider and Turn Left Energy. DC Brands is presently expediting the shipment along with the point of purchase materials. The company's VP of Sales Richard Muscarella said, "This one has been in the works for some time and it just takes patients to get through the process. We are thrilled to have this fantastic company on board with us. Back in January, we received paperwork from a rep firm claiming to have had the relationship and initial order with this group. We briefly referenced this as part of our general update sent directly to our shareholders. The order from the rep group never materialized. Therefore, we took the initiative to get the job done and traveled out to LA to meet with this group face to face. The rep group did assist in setting the meeting, but we took the bull by the horns from there."

DC Brands states that they are very exciting about having the great people at AmCom on their team. AmCom will enable the company to enter into the astonishingly huge LA market and will give them immediate access to a huge network of mobile catering units (catering coaches) throughout CA, AZ and NV as well as hundreds of prominently placed vending machines throughout the city. Richard Pearce, the President of the company and Mr. Muscarella will be traveling to LA on May 6th through May 9th to meet with the AmCom team and to launch their products into the marketplace. "We will be leaving directly from next week's big event we have in Las Vegas for the Amateur Poker Tour, then directly to CA," states Mr. Muscarella. "I have to say that the people at AmCom really have a very impressive operation and we expect to build to more than 3,500 cases a month together within 90 days or so."

The company's president Richard Pearce said, "In the past we have experienced an enormous amount of problems in announcing our distributors' names. During that time, many of our distributors received an overwhelming amount of calls. We are asking our shareholders to not repeat the mistakes of the past. We will continue to report progress."

DC Brands reiterates the fact that they are committed to becoming a fully reporting company after the end of the 2nd quarter. Furthermore, they have stated that the long overdue store locator is now only days away. However, distributors will only be listed once the company has an agreement in-house. "We are working hard to get agreements done with many others," states Mr. Pearce. "We should be releasing their names soon. We are proud to have such a fine organization join our growing team and I know they share our high level of commitment to making this a huge success."
