Splash Beverage to Buy Western Son Vodka

Splash Beverage Group, Inc. said it executed a Letter of Intent to acquire JEM Beverage Management Co. owners of the Western Son Vodka brand .  Terms of the transaction have not been disclosed as they are subject to reaching a definitive agreement.

Western Son Vodka, founded in 2011 is headquartered in Pilot Point, Texas, with a production and distribution campus spanning more than 150,000 square feet.  Over the last 12 months Western Son Vodka has sold about 309,000 9-liter cases of vodka.  Distilled 10 times and made with 100% American corn, the award-winning portfolio includes a Best-in-Class Original Vodka and is a four-time winner of Impact’s Spirits Hot Brand Award.

Robert Nistico, Splash CEO, said, Western’s distillery and the shipping campus will become a centralized production and distribution hub for Splash’s existing brands, Pulpoloco and SALT Tequila in addition to any future acquisitions, creating logistics cost savings in favorable shipping lanes, reducing freight expense and ultimately increasing margins.

Carlos Guillem, President of Western Son Vodka, commented, “The agreement between Splash and Western Son represents an exciting opportunity for the brand and the entire team.  Our focus has been on creating and delivering the highest quality vodka to the market, and this represents a major step in our journey.  The leadership, expertise, and capital that Splash Beverage can bring to the table, will allow Western Son to expand its reach to more consumers.”
