LONDON, June 6, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The World's Largest Spirits Company, London-based Diageo (NYSE:DEO), maker of leading alcohol brands including: Johnnie Walker Whisky, Jose Cuervo Tequila, Crown Royal Canadian Whisky, Captain Morgan Rum and Smirnoff Vodka has a new $2.3 Billion feather in its cap: Mey Icki Distillery, Turkey's largest spirits company, that holds an 80 percent share of the country's top-selling spirit categories, lead by Binboa Vodka.       

In April 2011, Liquor Group Wholesale (Pink Sheets:LIQR) began implementing their domestic distribution strategy commencing in Florida; marking the first time Binboa Vodka had ever been sold in the U.S. Due to overwhelming success, the Binboa Vodka product line is now expanding with Liquor Group into Illinois, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Binboa Vodka has award winning flavors including: Red Apple, Satsuma, Red Orange and Strawberry, suiting the palates of Young, Hip and Daring Taste Aware Consumers.  Binboa Vodka uses a marketing approach based on Cerebral Mid-Twenties Survey Advertising Campaigns; slogans include: "On a Night Out, 95% of Party Goers Meet New People, 5% Remember Their Names Afterwards ... " and "On a Friday Afternoon, 4% of People Work, 96% Pretend To Work." Uniquely packaged high quality spirits coupled with catchy marketing earned Binboa Vodka the largest market share in segments of Europe and Asia, and now the target is the U.S. 

"Liquor Group understands the multi-billion dollar potential identified by Diageo Executives that purchased this brand, notably long before ever selling a single bottle into the U.S., the largest market in overall sales in the world," says C. J. Eiras, CEO of Liquor Group Wholesale " Binboa Vodka enjoyed immediate results from our Patent-Pending Bailment Distribution Model, and we feel strongly that this expansion is only the beginning of a larger move forward."
