Las Vegas, Nevada , June 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EQ Labs, Inc. (“EQ.” or “the Company”) (OTC.BB: EQLB) is pleased to announce that it will partner with the nation's number one ranked distributor, Southern Wine & Spirits of Nevada (SWS-Nevada) -- a division of Southern Wine & Spirits of America, Inc. (Southern) -- to distribute EQ Labs' lead product, "Last Shot", to bars, nightclubs, casinos, and its other on-premise and off-premise accounts throughout Las Vegas beginning July 27, 2016.
"We are extremely proud of this major partnership, which is something we've been collectively working on since January of this year," says Mo Owens, CEO of EQ Labs. "Partnering with Southern, the nation's number one ranked distributor with access to 35 states, is a huge development and will boost "Last Shot" exposure throughout the market, allowing us to ramp up our revenue stream quickly."
"Last Shot" is already popular in Vegas, where we have been self-distributing since 2015," says Owens. "This major distribution partnership will only increase our sales and help us service our growing vendor list."
Recently, EQ Labs announced that The Flamingo Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas will be the first hotel in the Caesar’s Entertainment Corporation group of 50 hotel properties to feature “Last Shot.” The product will launch there on July 2, 2016 at a Timbaland mega-event.

EQ Labs will continue to announce new vendor partnerships in the upcoming weeks, all of which will now be serviced by Southern Wine & Spirits of Nevada.
"This is an exciting time for EQ Labs, "Last Shot," and our nationwide fans," states Timbaland. "I'd like to thank Southern Wine & Spirits for partnering with us to launch "Last Shot" in this, and other prime markets, positioning us solidly on a path to success."
"Last Shot” is a canned 8.04 oz, 5 Cal/2 Carb, cranberry-flavored dietary supplement drink with a 3-in-1 ability to energize, hydrate, and detoxify, providing hangover protection.
"Our roll out campaign and strategic expansion across Las Vegas and beyond can only be enhanced by our new relationship with Southern," says Owens.
