Leaf® Vodka Now Available at Costco in Colorado
Made from the best natural water sources in Alaska and the Rocky Mountains
Denver, CO, March 8, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Global Spirits USA, a privately-held, international manufacturer and marketer of wines and spirits, has announced that its brand LEAF® Organic Vodka is now available at Costco in Colorado.
Since water is vodka’s most distinguishing characteristic, LEAF Vodka is sourced from two unique American waters that give LEAF Vodkas their signature tastes. LEAF Organic Vodka made from Alaskan Glacial Water has a pure, smooth taste with a hint of sweetness, while LEAF Organic Vodka made from Rocky Mountain Mineral Water offers richness and complexity, lending a warm and savory impression on the palate. Each is Certified USDA Organic.
"The package, price, organic certification and quality combine to make this one of the most exciting and competitive brands on the market. So much so, that the brand has grown over 100 percent in the past year alone."
Jim Amstutz, National Sales Director, Global Spirits LLC
“Since Costco is one of the nation’s largest retailers, we are excited that the relationship will expose LEAF Vodka to wider group of consumers and fuel the brand’s growth,” notes Jim Amstutz, national sales director, Global Spirits. “The package, price, organic certification and quality combine to make this one of the most exciting and competitive brands on the market. So much so, that the brand has grown over 100 percent in the past year alone.”

This trial on-pack retails for $15.99 and is designed to expose both items in the line to Costco shoppers, allowing them to taste the difference LEAF’s unique water sources make.
