Branded Program Helps New York Supplier Expand Exports

by Food Export | Jan 18, 2017
Established in 2009, Fabulous American Beverages focus was to develop and market distilled spirits. Currently producing Kansas Clean Distilled Whiskey, a spirit whiskey focused on differentiation from its competitors through an appreciably distinctive and accessible taste profile.

With a plan to expand exports, this Palisades, New York supplier applied for Food Export Branded Program funds to further establish their brand and product in Japan and Germany. With Japan being one of the top Whiskey markets in the world, with affluent consumers, and higher average retail prices for whiskey than nearly every global market, it was a good country for Fabulous American Beverages to highlight on their Branded application. With very few offerings in the category Fabulous American Beverages was optimistic about an opportunity to expand export sales to the country. FabulousAmericanBeverages

This past February Fabulous American Beverages was able to report market sales of $3,384.00 to Germany and over $10,000 to Japan. Both of these sales numbers note a 20% increase in sales to the market and the sale to Germany marks a first-time sale to the market for the New York supplier.
