Liquor Group Gets into the Spirit with CMSC Spirits

Florida based publicly owned specialty spirits and wine distributor Liquor Group Wholesale Inc. (LIQR) has been contracted to represent New Jersey based CMSC Spirits Group’s Espiritu del Ecuador and The Spirit of Liberty liqueurs in Florida, with representation in other states to follow shortly. The first things you will notice about these products are their distinctive bottles modeled on famous monuments of North and South America, but the liqueurs inside will excite your palate.

Espiritu del Ecuador is a cordial liquor combining the flavors of twenty exotic Ecuadorian fruits, nuts and spices including mango, peach, pear, apple, cherry, chocolate, vanilla and almond in a cane sugar alcohol base that provides a smooth finish to this 60 proof libation. CMSC Spirits Group President, Tina LoBosco points out that the very complex formula gives Espiritu del Ecuador the ability to be enjoyed in a wide range of beverages and foods. It is suggested that you sip it straight like a brandy, chilled or on the rocks, but you can also be creative and add it to cocktails where its flavor blends well with fruit juices, sodas or a wide variety of other spirits. For an after dinner treat you will find that this liqueur mixes extraordinarily well with coffee, tea or milk and it is marvelous over ice cream or blended with yogurt. Another aspect of the versatility of Espiritu del Ecuador is its capacity to compliment dishes prepared in the kitchen ranging from appetizers, soups, sauces and stews to baked goods and desserts.

In addition to Espiritu del Ecuador's unique flavor, another exclusive aspect of identification is the eye-catching 750ml decanter, a replica of the structure known as "The Monument at the Middle of the World". The equator passes through Ecuador just a few miles north of Quito, the Capital of Ecuador, where a large stone monument is located at latitude 0'00". The decanter is a tribute to this monument which is located close to the Espiritu distillery and bottling facility.

The Spirit of Liberty liqueur is a blend of the finest American flavors that combine harmoniously into a smooth cream liqueur with a taste that will keep you coming back for more. Bourbon, cherries, apples and cream are the dominant flavor notes in this 36 proof winner from the 2006 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Enjoy it straight, chilled, on the rocks, in a variety of mixed drinks, as a desert topping or added to coffee. The tasty and tempting combinations are limitless. With 1/3 fewer calories, a higher proof level and a smoother finish than the nation's leading cream liqueur this is bound to become your new favorite.

The stunning Statue of Liberty bottles (9 inch tall 100ml and 17.5 inch tall 750ml) are an iconic symbol of the best that America has to offer and have become top sellers in the duty free shops at New Jersey's Newark International Airport. An easy-pour 750ml round bottle with a Statue of Liberty illustration is also available along with gift sets. The superior taste, unique packaging and competitive pricing make it the perfect gift for any occasion. “We are excited, to represent these beautifully packaged and delicious liqueurs,” says Liquor Group President, C.J. Eiras, “Both of these products represent the pride and the spirit that their respective countries hold in their hearts.”
