ASCC: Russian Vodka Ban Could Open Up New Opportunities in Europe

MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Following the decisive victory by its premier distilled spirit in a recent European vodka competition, the Aristocrat Group Corp. (OTCBB: ASCC) is examining distribution channels for RWB Ultra-Premium Handcrafted Vodka into Europe as the European Union (EU) considers a ban on Russian vodka.

The proposed ban by the EU on imports of Russian vodka and other luxury goods is in response to Russia’s potential influence on political elections in the Ukraine. Last year, bars, restaurants and other establishments in countries such as the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia banned Russian vodka after controversial bills were signed into law by the Russian government.

“We are in ongoing talks with European distributors,” ASCC CEO Robert Federowicz said. “The recent landslide victory of RWB Vodka over Russian and Ukranian vodkas, as well as the political situation in that part of the world, opens up an opportunity for RWB Vodka to be accepted in Europe.”

ASCC is working to build a portfolio of successful brands to compete in a highly profitable sector alongside LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton (OTCBB: LVMUY), Diageo PLC (NYSE: DEO), BEAM, Inc. (NYSE: BEAM) and Brown-Forman Corp. (NYSE: BF-B). By handling its own distribution business, ASCC hopes to capitalize on unprecedented new brand building opportunities through Luxuria Brands, its brand management division.
