Splash Beverage Group Inc. (SBEV) Expands TapouT Product Line to Alabama, Florida

  • SBEV inks agreements with Gulf Distributing of Florida, Alabama—one of area’s most-established distributors
  • TapouT is first advanced-performance drink that focuses on all three levels of physical support: activation, hydration and recovery

Splash Beverage Group (OTCQB: SBEV), a holding company of leading portfolio of beverage brands, is expanding the reach of its TapouT performance drink into Alabama and Florida. Splash has finalized agreements with Gulf Distributing of Florida and Gulf Distributing of Alabama to distribute TapouT beverages, its complete line of high-performance sports drink that contain a proprietary blend of essential vitamins, minerals and electrolytes (

“We have a 20-year relationship with Gulf Distribution and we are extremely excited to be working with their team again,” said Splash Beverage CEO Robert Nistico. “Our brand TapouT joins their blue-chip portfolio of Coors, Heineken, Corona, Red Bull, Essentia Water, 7-Up and Snapple, with statewide coverage in Alabama, including TapouT’s new authorization of 74 MapCo stores in the state. . . . This adds to TapouT’s rapidly growing list of distributors in Southeast United States, particularly in Florida as they will cover Bay, Calhoun, Escambia, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Walton and Washington counties.”

The two divisions of Gulf Distributing Holdings (“GDH”) manage and operate seven individual beverage distributors that encompass central and southern Alabama and the panhandle of Florida. One of the most-established distributors in the area, GDH in its entirety represents more than 100 suppliers and services more than 10,000 retail accounts in the Southeastern United States. 

TapouT is the first advanced-performance drink that focuses on all three levels of physical support — activation, hydration and recovery resulting in increased endurance and performance. The line features a proprietary blend of nine essential vitamins, five minerals and all five electrolytes that are formulated for maximum absorption to enhance cellular health and function. The beverages offer tasty, light and refreshing flavors.

The current Splash portfolio features four unique beverage brands. In addition to its TapoutT performance drinks, the company offers Salt Naturally Flavored Tequila, a 100% blanco agave 80-proof tequila that offers a clean and delicate taste; Copa Di Vino, the leading producer of premium “wine by the glass” in the country; and Pulpoloco Sangria, a premium-crafted sangria imported from Spain. Each of these brands offers one or more of the qualities that the company specifically seeks in an acquisition. 

Specializing in manufacturing, distributing, sales and marketing of various beverages across multiple channels, Splash operates in both the alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverage segments, allowing it to leverage efficiencies and dilute risk. The company’s business strategy is to quickly develop and accelerate pre-existing brands to exit for cash events. The company’s management team has invaluable expertise and insight, and the company strives to identify brands it perceives to have highly visible preexisting brand awareness or pure category innovation.

Specifically, the company look for brands and products that are on trend and deliver natural quality, health benefits, freshness and refreshment within their beverages. The company looks to maintain highest performance standards and focus on execution as it works with distributors and retail partners achieve and exceed all goals. In addition, the company offers support for members of the U.S. armed forces, first responders and health-care professionals.
