21st Century Spirits Introduces Gabriel Boudier Mixologist RangeAugust 2, 2011
LOS ANGELES, Calif. – 21st Century Spirits, a Los Angeles-based importer and producer of high quality spirits, extends its import portfolio holdings with France's famed micro-distiller, Gabriel Boudier to include the Gabriel Boudier Mixologist Range, a trade-focused line of liqueurs. The addition will accompany 21st Century Spirits’ established import portfolio of French-produced liqueurs and spirits, including Gabriel Boudier’s trademark Crème de Cassis, as well as its Crème de Framboises and Saffron Infused Gin.
The Gabriel Boudier Mixologist Range is a premium range of liqueurs featuring artisanal, contemporary flavors developed for the modern mixologist. Made from real fruit at the Gabriel Boudier distillery in Dijon, France, each expression in the Gabriel Boudier Mixologist Range contains no preservatives or any other commercial compromises to quality. In addition to bottling each liqueur at its maximum fruit concentration, each liqueur maintains a determined density for optimal mixing compatibility.
Packaged with the on-premise mixologist in mind, the Gabriel Boudier Mixologist Range of 750 ml bottles feature a slender body and long neck for ease of handling. All bottles in the range are equipped with a simple capsule that accommodates standard pourers. On the shelf, the bottle height and cohesive family facing of the Gabriel Boudier Mixologist Range maintains visibility, while the slim diameter of each bottle lends to ease of storage.
“As the spirits industry evolves across America, the art of the cocktail has sparked a growing mutual interest in quality ingredients and craft cocktails from bartenders and consumers alike,” said Kevin Egan, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for 21st Century Spirits. “This expanding need for quality ingredients has inspired Gabriel Boudier’s interest in extending distribution of the Gabriel Boudier Mixologist Range into the American market. Following Gabriel Boudier's time-honored commitment to quality, tradition and innovation, the Gabriel Boudier Mixologist Range aligns with the modern attitude of a growing segment of American mixologists and consumers whose priorities surrounding mixed drinks include awareness of premium ingredients and product quality.”
The Gabriel Boudier Mixologist Range now available to U.S. purchasers includes eight liqueur flavors: Lychee, Apple, Maraschino, Orange, Parfait Amour, Pomegranate, Ginger and Williams Pear. Suggested retail pricing for each 750 ml bottle is $25 USD.
In addition to the Gabriel Boudier Mixologist Range, 21st Century Spirits will also extend its Gabriel Boudier Classic Crème de Fruits portfolio of Crème de Cassis and Crème de Framboises to include Crème de Mures, Crème de Fraises and Crème de Pêches.
