Trump Super Premium Vodka Receives 4 Star Rating From F. Paul Pacult's Spirit Journal

WILTON, CT--(Marketwire - July 11, 2007) - Drinks Americas Holdings, Ltd. (OTCBB: DKAM), a leading developer and marketer of premium iconic beverage brands, including Trump Super Premium Vodka, Willie Nelson's Old Whiskey River Bourbon and Paul Newman's Sparkling Fruit Juices, today announced that it has received a 4 Star rating from pre-eminent reviewer F. Paul Pacult's Spirit Journal.

Mr. Pacult's June 2007 Trump Super Premium Vodka review stated the following, "Clear appearance; superb clarity. The first nosings after the pour reveal dry, earthy scents of grain and paraffin; following the seven minute aeration period, the bouquet offers tantalizing nuances of, jasmine, flowers, moss and soot. The palate entry displays far better than average grain focus and viscosity; at the mid-palate juncture, the taste profile turns off-dry, intensely breakfast cereal-like and biscuity. Finishes elegantly, oily/cream, and snack cracker-like. You're NOT fired. Spirit Journal Rating: Four Stars HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"

F. Paul Pacult's Spirit Journal does not accept advertising and does not charge fees for product submission for published reviews.

J. Patrick Kenny, President and CEO of Drinks Americas, stated, "Mr. Pacult's Spirit Journal is one of the most respected authorities in evaluating spirits products. To have the Spirit Journal rate Trump Super Premium Vodka Four Stars Highly Recommended is very exciting. We are on track to sell 100,000 cases of Trump Super Premium Vodka in the first twelve months of sales, so we know the consumer likes the great taste and quality of the product as well."
