CAMARILLO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Chareau announced this week a nationwide sales and marketing partnership
with the Espiritus Group (www.e-spirit-us.com)
effective immediately. This new partnership will more than triple the
current sales force for Chareau Aloe Liqueur, while adding key executive
leadership from Espiritus partners Jay Maltby (Co-Founder of Angel’s
Envy Bourbon and former Cruzan Rum CEO), Chuck Chand (former Brown
Forman Executive), and Eric Rubin (Co-Founder of Tres Agaves Tequila).
“As one of the fastest growing liqueur brands in the country, Chareau is
quickly becoming a bar staple across the U.S., and Espiritus has the
team, experience, and market expertise to help us make Chareau a
household name,” says founder Kurt Charron.
“We are excited to be partnered with Chareau, bringing our marketing and
sales capabilities to leverage the foundation of effective brand
building that Kurt and his team have laid over the past six years,”
states Jay Maltby, Chairman of Espiritus.
Since launching in 2013, Chareau has received numerous awards and
accolades including a Double Gold Medal at the prestigious San Francisco
World Spirits Competition and a score of 96 from Wine Enthusiast
Magazine as the Highest Rated Liqueur of the Year in their Top 100
Spirits issue for 2018. The impressive spirit, in conjunction with a
beautifully simple package and on-trend marketing campaign, has allowed
Chareau to grow over 100% in revenue in 2018 over 2017.
“Kurt has built an effective and high-performing team that is
complementary to our group at Espiritus. We are looking forward to
accelerating the growth of the brand, creating additional value for its
shareholders,” adds Chuck Chand, COO of Espiritus.
CHAREAU is an all-natural Aloe Vera liqueur created by its Founder, Kurt
Charron. The spirit is a perfectly balanced blend of distilled cucumber,
spearmint, lemon peel, and muskmelon finished with Fresh Aloe Vera juice
sourced from local California farms. Chareau has the versatility to be
mixed with any base spirit to create delicious craft cocktails, and the
simplicity to be served on the rocks with a splash of sparkling water.
At nearly half the sugar of a traditional liqueur, and less calories
than traditional 40% abv spirits, Chareau is the perfect light,
refreshing spirit needed for today’s consumer.
