MOORPARK, Calif., Nov. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Montalvo Spirits, Inc., (OTCQB:TQLA) ("Montalvo" or, the "Company") producers of award-winning brand Montalvo Tequila, announced today that it has continued its expansion plan by securing distribution and receiving its first orders in the State of Arizona. Montalvo Tequila is now being distributed by MJ Sweiss, LLC, a fine wine and spirits distributor based in Phoenix, who supplies restaurants, resorts, and retailers throughout Arizona.

In addition, Montalvo Tequila has fulfilled an order from the State of Wyoming Liquor Division, and will be available in select retailers in the state.

These states now join Florida, New York, California, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Oregon in carrying Montalvo Tequila's award-wining line of ultra-premium tequilas.

"Arizona was an integral state in our distribution plan," commented Daniel Cahill, Montalvo's Director of Sales. "Securing distribution in the Southwest was the logical next step after our successful Northeast expansion," added Cahill.

At the prestigious Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2013, Montalvo Tequila's Plata was named Finalist for the Chairman's Trophy, being awarded 93 points out of 100. And at the 2013 Spirits of the Americas Competition, Montalvo's Reposado was named "Best of Class" in the Reposado Tequila category, and Montalvo's Reposado and Anejo were awarded Gold Medals in September 2013's Spirits of Mexico Competition, held by the IWSC Group.
