NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Nov 20, 2012) - Panache Beverage, Inc. (OTCQB: WDKA), an alcoholic beverage company specializing in the development, global sales and marketing of spirits brands, is pleased to announce that it has formalized a new supply agreement for Wodka Vodka with a Polish partner. The move will result in a cost savings, increasing the gross profit for Wodka Vodka by over 11%. The new distillery partner also produces the grain making Wodka Vodka one of the only value vodkas with the status of an artisan, field to bottle, brand.
"The distillery change was an important strategic move for the future of the Wodka Vodka business," explained Panache CEO James Dale. "Increasing margin for the brand while solidifying our quality for value proposition was critical as we look at the things we need to do to make Wodka Vodka a 1 million case brand."
The change in supplier created a business interruption in the third quarter resulting in only 14% of projected goods sold in that quarter. With the new distillery shipping in Q4, Panache is forecasting a record fourth quarter for Wodka Vodka shipping 200% of its projection for the fourth quarter. Wodka Vodka is still on track to reach its 2012 volume numbers.
