WILTON, Conn., Nov. 16, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Drinks Americas Holdings, Ltd. (OTCBB:DKAMD), announced today that top line revenue from the Company's launch of Rheingold Beer in Metro New York has generated $106,000 in sales through October 30th. Rheingold Beer was launched in September 2010 by the Company in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut in 12 oz. can twelve packs, bringing back New York's historic and well remembered beer.

The Company further stated that of the $106,000 in Rheingold orders for the two months, over half of the orders placed were reorders resulting in the sell through of the initial orders taken by distributors. Rheingold Beer is selling in a wide variety of accounts in the Metro New York market and four state launch markets. Accounts ranging from key New York grocery chains like Pathmark, Waldbaum's and Key Foods to on premise accounts like the Tribeca Grill and The Maritime Hotel in New York City have all purchased the famous beer.

J. Patrick Kenny Drinks CEO stated, "Rheingold Beer is really well remembered by beer consumers. The aspect of the launch that is most exciting is how many repeat orders we are seeing, both at retail and by distributors. As an example, our Fairfield County distributor is on his third order and our larger New York distributor is ordering their second full container. The financial impact the brand can have on the Company as we scale up with the roll out of additional sizes like bottles and expand to markets like Florida where there is a deep familiarity with New York will be important. The last time Rheingold was distributed in just New York City the brand generated over $6 million in sales, and we know we can cover a larger market area and in time exceed that target."
