NEW YORK, June 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Montalvo Spirits, Inc., (OTCQB:TQLA) ("Montalvo" or, the "Company") producers of award-winning brand Montalvo Tequila, announced today that the Company continues to meet its expansion plans having recently secured distribution in the states of Connecticut and Oregon.

To continue its expansion into the Northeast, the Company has registered the brand with the State of Connecticut and has appointed a distributor throughout the state. The Company plans to launch Montalvo Tequila in Connecticut on August 1st. "The Northeast markets have shown great growth potential for handcrafted beverages and following May's expansion into New Jersey, Connecticut seemed like the next logical move," explained Montalvo's Director of Sales, Daniel Cahill. "We are hoping for a positive response from Connecticut consumers and further expansion into the Northeast."

In its expansion into the Pacific Northwest, Montalvo Tequila has been approved for special orders by the State of Oregon and plans for limited distribution beginning in July. "The Pacific Northwest has long been a monumental player in the craft spirits movement and we couldn't be more excited about expanding into Oregon. We're thrilled to have partnered with Thomas Cellars to help bring Montalvo to key accounts in the state," said Cahill.

"Our growth into new key markets is driven by increased recognition of the brand, through grassroots marketing efforts and by our success in spirits competitions," added Alex Viecco, Montalvo's CEO.

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.
