NEW YORK, Jan. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Blackheath Beverage Group, LLC proudly announced this week that their portfolio of brands shipped over 160,000 cases in the United States in 2014. Sales revenues topped $18Million across the seven supplier partners that Blackheath represents and manages throughout the country.
Jay Harkins, CEO of Blackheath, attributes the organization's success to "supplying our partners with a highly talented team that provides the bandwidth, focus, and balanced 'share-of-mind' essential to building a spirits brand." Jay continues to say, "Blackheath is unique because we do not own any proprietary brands that would skew our priorities. This allows for equal allocation of focus and resources to each of our partners."
Michael Rieck, industry veteran and Vice-President of Sales/Partner at Blackheath, continued, "what makes me proud is knowing that these numbers, while impressive on their own, represent healthy and sustainable business for our brand partners. Our route-to-market is truly the most efficient available to date and our sales foundation is so much healthier than that of larger organizations. Every bottle we sell is because we sell it. We are finding sales success by developing long-term business and really building brands on a healthy foundation, that's what gives me great confidence for the future."
COO and Co-Founder of Blackheath Beverage Group, Michael Farbenblum, Esq. feels that "we took a bit of a risk when we rethought the existing enterprise models and came up with our shared infrastructure. This current success is a testament to the model, but we owe a significant debt of gratitude to our brand partners, especially those that joined us early on, without their faith in us and this innovative model, this would not have been possible."
