Fishers Island Lemonade announced a new distribution partnership with Farrell Distributing. The move follows Vermont's recent expansion of the ready-to-drink market.
A recent bill passed by the Vermont legislature allows spirits-based beverages that are 12% alcohol or less to be distributed by private-sector wholesalers and sold in the state's nearly 1,000 grocery stores, convenience stores and gas stations. The brand is looking forward to expansion opportunities in Vermont, and confident that Farrell Distributing will widen availability of Fishers Island Lemonade to consumers in the state.
The recipe for the original Fishers Island Lemonade was inspired by the signature house cocktail, the “Fishers,” served at The Pequot Inn which Bronya’s family owned and operated on Fishers Island, New York. It was there that Bronya had the visionary idea to package the Fishers Island Lemonade cocktail and put it in a can, allowing fans to take the delicious and distinctly flavorful cocktail - always made with premium, real spirits - with them wherever they went, bringing on the beginnings of the ready-to-drink category.
