NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Montalvo Spirits, Inc. (OTCQB:TQLA) ("Montalvo" or the "Company) announced today the signing of a Master Distribution Agreement with Broken Heart Spirits Limited, which grants Montalvo exclusive master distribution rights for Broken Heart Gin in the United States.

"We are extremely excited to be the exclusive master distributor of Broken Heart Gin in the United States," said Montalvo's CEO Alex Viecco. "It's a wonderful addition to Montalvo's family of brands and it takes us one step further in our quest to create a portfolio of ultra-premium, artisanal spirits."

Broken Heart Gin is produced in Queenstown, New Zealand. Nestled on the shores of crystal clear Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown is home to some of the finest water in the world. Broken Heart is handcrafted using only the highest quality ingredients, including an intricate blend of eleven botanicals.

Broken Heart Gin's formula was recently approved by the U.S. Tax and Trade Bureau, and is now finalizing the labeling requirements. Once the labels are approved, Broken Heart Gin will be able to be imported and sold in the United States.

Montalvo plans to use MHW, Ltd. to import the product, and has immediate distribution plans for New York, California and Florida upon its proposed launch later this year.
