Within the $1.4T global alcohol beverage industry, there is a HUGE untapped market for premium, premixed alcoholic beverages. Our company, Nineshotz Premium Alcoholic Beverages, manufactures exceptional alcoholic shots available in nine unique flavors. The product has several differentiating features including an innovative handled 9-Pack “cube” and our proprietary 50mL SingleShots with pull-ring opening. We offer completely original 40-proof flavors with the ability to launch several new flavors per year as market trends change. Nineshotz is a fully developed, peer-reviewed, and industry-accepted product with U.S. and international sales pending. Nineshotz beverages are unique to the industry with a form factor unlike any of the competition. Our stylish bottle is the ONLY ready-to-drink product produced in the U.S. labeled for individual sale, meaning we can sell our drinks in places that NOBODY ELSE CAN! Cruise lines, arenas, movie theaters, airlines, nightclubs and bars… the list goes on. The high quality and great taste of Nineshotz drinks are unrivaled. We are ready to begin bottling and have already received commitments from companies such as Busch Gardens and distributors serving Florida, Texas, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. We have begun initial conversations with 24 additional distributors as well as Royal Caribbean Cruise Line. Shortly following the commencement of bottling, we will begin exporting to Canada, Asia, and Europe. Our team is, without a doubt, the most experienced of any alcoholic beverage startup, and our advisory board is truly first-class. You will not find a more motivated, more prepared company than Nineshotz. We appreciate your consideration.
