Premier Innovations Group launches Clique Vodka in Los Angeles market; partners with Selective Spirits

Pittsburgh, PA – Premier Innovations Group is proud to announce that Clique Vodka has partnered with distribution company Selective Spirits, based out of Los Angeles, California. Clique will be available for distribution in most Wine & Spirits stores in the greater Los Angeles area.

Selective Spirits main focus has been the distribution of tequila brands until recent. Clique Vodka will be its first vodka brand to promote and sell to its already vast customer base.

“We have recently seen an ever-growing interest from club promoters and venues in Los Angeles. That, mixed with how Clique Vodka is often viewed as an innovative and fun brand by many consumers has made this an ideal market for us”, said Jimi Romanus, Vice President of Sales for Premier Innovations Group. “We have been conservative in launching in Los Angeles until the right distribution partnership could present itself, and Selective Spirits showed all of the attributes we look for.”

Selective Spirits currently distributes its portfolio of brands to hundreds of Los Angeles area Wine & Spirits stores. This will mark one of a number of recent exclusive distribution partnerships for Premier Innovations Group.

Pittsburgh, PA – Premier Innovations Group is proud to announce that Clique Vodka has partnered with OWimex Spirits. Clique will be available for distribution in Cambodia, Korea, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam.

Premier Innovations Group to expand vodka brand in major U.S. city markets

Clique Vodka expands into the Cleveland market

Pittsburgh, PA (August 22, 2013) – In addition to Clique Vodka’s success in the past nine months with its launch of a sleek black bottle and national expansion with Total Wine & More, Premier Innovations Group is now developing its vodka brand into niche city markets across the country. Private distributor agreements are being finalized and will be announced in the upcoming weeks.

The first major city within Ohio that is now selling Clique Vodka is Cleveland.

“Keeping with one of Premier Innovations Group’s 2013 goals to launch Clique successfully in many major U.S. cities is coming to fruition.” says Jimi Romanus, Vice President of Sales, Premier Innovations Group. “Breaking into the Cleveland market makes perfect sense since we have seen demand due to the city’s proximity of our largest volume selling state in Pennsylvania.”

Currently, Premier Innovations Group is using its own infrastructure for Ohio sales, however, the plan is to team up with a distributor in the near future. Supermarket chain Giant Eagle, along with locally owned wine and spirits stores, are carrying Clique Vodka in the top selling locations in the Cleveland and Youngstown markets.

Premier Innovations Group Promotes Social Responsibility with the 2.0 Release of Smart Phone App ‘DrinkyPal’

February 15, 2013—Premier Innovations Group, who own the brands Clique Vodka and Don Pantaleon Tequila, believes that with every alcohol promotion must come a social responsibility resource as well. The company owns the iPhone App ‘DrinkyPal’, which is a free download on the iTunes App store.

You can now book a hotel room directly from your phone within the application, as well as call the taxi company directly.

Nationally, alcohol-related deaths declined in 2010* by 4.9%. However, they still made up 31% of the overall traffic fatalities in 2010. In 2010, there were 12,426 alcohol-related vehicle accidents in Pennsylvania, which was a decrease from 2009 (12,712).

“Upon redeveloping DrinkyPal, my focus was to make an already socially responsible drinking app more fun and interactive for the user”, said Joel Kamensky, VP of Design for Premier Innovations Group. “The purpose of DrinkyPal is to allow the user to upload and share photos with our built in camera and browse the photo newsfeed, all while being able to book a hotel or call a taxi within minutes of where they are. If our app helps even a handful of people to ‘clique intelligently’, then we’ve done our part.”

Award Winning Clique Vodka Launches New Black Bottle and Expands to 12 More States

Clique Vodka reinvents its brand and launches a new sleek black bottle design, and expands to 12 more states with national private distributor Total Wines & More.

(November 23, 2012)—Clique Vodka is happy to announce their national expansion to 12 more states, making a total of 17 available states for purchase. You will now be able to purchase Clique Vodka in the following: Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia.

In conjunction with the national expansion, a revolutionary new packaging and brand identity is also launching at the same time. A new, sleek, state-of-the-art black bottle will be introduced – a first for the industry.

“Premier’s vision with Clique Vodka has always been to provide our consumers with the best value in the industry”, said Noah Cohen, CEO Premier Innovations Group. “The new packaging was the final step after the 2012 accolades for quality. Extensive traveling and relationship building with global packaging and decoration factories led us to a new partnership in eastern Europe with unprecedented capabilities in the decorative packaging landscape. This relationship represents a game changer in premiers ability to build unique brands that effectively and efficiently penetrate the market.”

The idea began when Frank Bachurski, VP of Marketing for Premier Innovations Group decided that it was time for Clique Vodka to use the industry research gathered over the past two years to really tap into the brand’s true potential and create a defined niche for itself in the international vodka market.  The vodka’s quality and taste has been proven again and again, winning 2 Gold medals in the SIP Awards and the Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Competition in 2012.

“Every so often a brand will emerge that will revolutionize an industry. The spirits industry has reached a tipping point with growing technology and its evolution and there is now an opportunity for a brand to emerge and change the way this industry speaks to its consumers. Now is the time for a innovative, intelligent brand to change the game while maintaining the traditional production quality of a truly superior product. Our group of young, forward-thinking visionaries will speak to an informed demographic and raise the bar for the future of vodka and the way we do business. Clique Vodka is the new black, and will become a timeless staple in the vodka industry.” – Frank Bachurski, VP of Marketing
