The Other Guys reports 25% increase in wine and spirits sales in fiscal 2012
US-based wine and spirits company The Other Guys (TOG) has shipped over 300,000 cases of wine and spirits in fiscal 2012, compared with 239,000 cases in 2011, registering a 25% rise.
TOG sold approximately 8,000 cases of premium spirits in fiscal 2012. The company's 35 Maple Street spirits division launched two brands - Uncle Val's Botanical Gin and Kirk & Sweeney Dominican Rum - during the year.
TOG's Leese-Fitch wine brands including Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel and Merlot had shown sales of more than 150,000 cases.
TOG president Sebastiani said, "We strive to offer a portfolio of high quality wine and spirits that are uniquely positioned in the marketplace, and we pride ourselves on the ability to appeal to a wide array of consumers."
Sebastiani said the company is planning to introduce small-batch bourbon later this year as part of its efforts to extend its reach into the burgeoning craft spirits market.
