VuQo in Negotiations With Tanduay Distillers Inc. for Exclusive Distribution of Top Tier Alcohol Brands in the U.S.

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2011) - VuQo Holdings Corp. (PINKSHEETS: VUQO) -- VuQo Holdings Corporation announces that it is in talks with Tanduay Distillers, through their San Francisco subsidiary, Midway Trading, to exclusively import and distribute Tanduay products in the United States. The move is in line with VuQo's mission of bringing high quality Philippine-made wines and spirits to the global market and elevating the status of Filipino brands. "With over 155 years of history, Tanduay is the leading rum and one of the most recognizable liquor brands in the Philippines, so we are eager to get this partnership started," said VuQo CEO Rich Cabael.

VuQo plans to immediately place Tanduay Dark Rum, dark spicy rum that is aged for five years, into key accounts in California, joining its flagship product, VuQo Premium Vodka, on shelves and back bars. Cabael anticipates a strong response from the Filipino-American community, who are undoubtedly familiar with the brand, and is excited to introduce the spirit to a broader market.
