Russian Ice Storm Hits Michigan

November 11, 2010, Novi, MI – Liquor Group Wholesale, Inc. (Publicly Traded: LIQR) in conjunction with their Control State Brokerage affiliate Liquor Group Michigan announced today the introduction of Russian Ice Vodka in the largest of the US Control State markets.  Russian Ice is imported by Tualatin OR based Far-East Imports LLC, and representative Nick Kelton said that his firm was pleased to have found a distribution partner who could represent the brand in a wide range of states, but who still takes a hands-on approach towards building a brand that is well known in its native Russia, but new to the US market.  "Liquor Group has quickly established the brand in the Florida market and we anticipate great success in Michigan and in the other states where they will launch the product soon," said Kelton.

Russian Ice is neutral grain based vodka that undergoes a special Silver Filtration process after multiple distillations, resulting in a smooth and slightly sweet finish.  The eye-catching glass bottle celebrates the "Old Glory of Russian Victories" and reproduces a woodblock illustration of the 1242 Victory of Russian Warriors over Teutonic Knights on the frozen surface of Lake Peipus.  Liquor Group Product Manager Lowell Newman noted that "Russian Ice offers high quality Russian Vodka in a great package at a reasonable price and that is sure to gain the brand a loyal following across the US."
