New Distribution Agreement For Copa Di Vino and Pulpoloco Sangria Expands Splash Beverage Group Inc.’s (SBEV) Footprint Into North Carolina

  • SBEV entered partnership with Johnson Brothers to increase Copa Di Vino and Pulpoloco Sangria distribution in North Carolina
  • SBEV leverages superior production, supply chain efficiencies, global distribution capabilities to rapidly develop, accelerate pre-existing brands for profitable exits
  • Johnson Brothers recently expanded distribution footprint through Mutual Distributing Co. acquisition

Splash Beverage Group (OTCQB: SBEV), a holding company with a leading portfolio of beverage brands, recently announced entry into the North Carolina market through a new partnership with Johnson Brothers – a leading wine, spirits and beer distributor ( The agreement includes the distribution of Copa di Vino and Pulpoloco Sangria, two of the company’s leading beverage innovations that combine product quality, technological innovation and proven branding power. 

Residents of South Carolina will soon have wide access to SBEV’s Copa di Vino – a premium “wine by the glass” product that can be easily consumed anywhere without requiring a bottle opener or corkscrew. The brand made headlines decades ago on Shark Tank after its founder turned down multiple offers, choosing instead to branch out independently and make tens of millions of dollars on his own before selling the business to SBEV ( Its unique packaging is rivaled by SBEV’s premium Pulpoloco Sangria – a fine Sangria imported from Spain using a premium blend of Spanish ingredients. Eco-friendly and biodegradable, Pupoloco Sangria is aseptically filled and packaged in an eco-friendly CARTOCAN(R) container for flavor enhancement and sustainable disposal.

Johnson Brothers (“JB”) has represented industry-leading suppliers as well as notable local brands for nearly 70 years. Along with extensive coverage across North Carolina, the company’s distribution footprint surged once again with the recent acquisition of Mutual Distributing Co. – one of the most extensive wine and beer distributors in the state.

“The partnership with Johnson has our wine/sangria brands joining the most elite domestic and international wines covered by JB in North Carolina,” said SBEV President and Chief of Marketing Bill Meisner. “With 40 years’ experience distributing wine, specialty beers and spirits, we’ve found an ideal partner for this region, complementing our existing distribution in this region.

“Shareholders and consumers alike will recognize a rapid entry to market via established partners that give us a leg up in entering markets throughout the country toward expedited growth and overall exposure for our unique portfolio of beverage brands,” Meisner concluded.

SBEV seeks out trendy brands with special characteristics that include superior ingredients, top quality and health benefits. Along with Copa Di Vino and Pulpoloco Sangria, SBEV’s portfolio also includes TapouT Performance – a natural isotonic hydration & recovery sports drink, and Salt Naturally Flavored Tequila – a fine tequila crafted from handpicked, 100% pure blue agave plants from the mountains of Jalisco, one of the country’s most fertile agave-growing regions.

SBEV strives to maintain high performance standards with a focus on execution, ensuring that distributors and retail partners achieve and exceed all goals. The company’s growth strategy is characterized by superior production, supply chain efficiencies and global distribution capabilities that are leveraged to rapidly develop and accelerate pre-existing brands that can be profitably exited for cash events.
