Paradise Brands in West Palm Beach, FL, has signed with Republic National Distributing Company (RNDC) of Florida to handle distribution of Monkey in Paradise Vodka, and the company’s most recent acquisition, Blue Nectar Tequila.
The change in distribution is effective June 1, 2020, bringing the total number of RNDC markets for Paradise Brands to eight (CO, FL, OK, OH, LA, NM, SC and TX).
“We’ve had great success working with RNDC in markets across the country and we look forward to working with them in one of our strongest markets — Florida,” says National Sales Manager/Exec VP Frank Sacca.
Monkey in Paradise Vodka is distilled in Florida. The brand has picked up distribution at ABC, Publix, Total Wine and Winn Dixie. Monkey in Paradise is made from 100% American grown corn and distilled seven-times, and is sugar-free, gluten-free and carb-free.
“Monkey in Paradise Vodka and Blue Nectar Tequila are a perfect fit for our portfolio. Both brands are in solid growth categories which will do very well in Florida,” says Ron Barcena, EVP Florida at RNDC.
