NEW YORK, Aug. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Montalvo Spirits, Inc. (OTCQB:TQLA) ("Montalvo" or the "Company), a developer and distributor of craft spirits, today announced an update on Montalvo Tequila's distribution efforts.

In the state of Connecticut, Montalvo Tequila is now being distributed by Wine Solutions, a division of Winebow, Inc. – CT. In addition, Montalvo Tequila has received its first purchase order by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission and will now be available at select retailers in the state.

The Company is in discussions to further expand distribution into several new key markets, including Nevada, Texas, and Illinois. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to enter into distribution agreements in these markets.

"As our brand awareness continues to increase, we feel it is important to widen our distribution in a methodical way that allows us to fully support the efforts of our wholesale partners," said Daniel Cahill, Montalvo's Director of Sales.

The Company is also exploring the option of engaging additional spirits brokers in the markets they currently serve. "Due to the initial success of our partnership with Elite Agave Marketing in Florida, we believe brokerage relationships will enhance our sales and marketing efforts in a cost-effective manner," added Cahill.
