Italy's Bottega taps Interbrands USA for cruise distribution

Italy's Bottega taps Interbrands USA for cruise distribution
Italian wine and spirits producer Bottega entered into an agreement with Interbrands USA to distribute its portfolio to the cruise industry, excluding duty-free.

Interbrands Wines & Spirits is one of the leading privately owned premium distributors in Scandinavia, and one of the largest suppliers to the Nordic travel retail and domestic markets.

Established in 2014, Interbrands USA aims to become the preferred supplier to the cruise industry. Deborah Golden, a well-known figure in the cruise business, joined Interbrands USA in 2014 as vp sales and marketing. Before then, she had her own Miami-based consulting business and worked with Bottega to establish their brands.

'Major advances in distribution and sales were achieved over the past five years with Golden and Company. Bottega’s award-winning sparkling wines, grappas and premium liqueurs have attracted special attention,' said Alessandra Piccin, Bottega export manager, travel retail.

Bottega is pleased with this new partnership and welcomes Interbrands USA to its global family of agents and distributors, added Bottega president Sandro Bottega.
