Premier Innovations Group Announces Expansion of Clique Vodka into Ohio

Pittsburgh, PA (March 26, 2012)—Premier Innovations Group has announced their recent expansion of Clique Vodka into the state of Ohio.

Premier Innovations Group was founded by Noah Cohen, Chief Executive Officer and native to Youngstown, Ohio. Mr Cohen attended Canfield High School and is a graduate of Youngstown State University. He has had a long line of successful start-ups under his belt since the age of 18. In 2007, at the age of 27, Cohen decided to start Premier Innovations Group, a federal importing company for the spirits industry. With a strong team foundation formed, hard work and continued dedication, Premier Innovations Group launched their first private brand, Clique Vodka in July of 2010.

“Expanding Clique Vodka’s foothold into many new markets is our biggest focus in pursuit of having a global brand. I couldn’t be more excited and proud about the penetration into my home town market where much of our initial investment dollars come from. Many individuals from Youngstown gave their hard earned money taking a chance on heavy returns that can come from success in the liquor industry. We are starting to see great success from our launch in our initial states, but Youngstown, Ohio has always been an important market to me,” said Noah Cohen, CEO Premier Innovations Group.

Premier’s brand, Clique Vodka, is now sold throughout retail outlets in Northeast Ohio. The brand is sold in numerous retail outlets such as Giant Eagle and other state retail stores. Premier is acting as its own distributor and has hired a sales force to promote the vodka locally in Youngstown. The brand hit store shelves last week and is priced at approximately $16.00 a bottle.

“We view Ohio as a good state to do business with for many reasons. Its proximity to Pennsylvania has allowed many consumers to request the brand to be available in the Buckeye state,” says Jimi Romanus, Vice President of Sales. “Today’s economy has created a strong demand for high quality vodka with an affordable price point, which is something Clique offers in this market.”

Ohio now marks the fourth state that Premier Innovations Group has expanded their brands to, along with Pennsylvania, Tennessee and West Virginia.

2012 Looking Ahead

The chaos of the holidays is long over and we are settled back in to performance without interruption. Here at Premier Innovations Group we hope everyone had an amazing holiday and that resolutions for personal and corporate betterment have kicked into gear for the New Year.

For Premier, 2012 is a year of great opportunity coupled with dramatic growth that is only apparent in a business that is having an extremely successful infancy. The success we have seen is attributed to a team of performers starting to work smarter together to critically think and solve problems empowered as one entity moving into our second true fiscal year. As we continue to grow together on a path to corporate transparency and excellence, we’d like to update our supporters’, followers’, and investors’ as frequently as possible on some of the largest milestones and significant happenings.

Financially, the last quarter of 2011 set the precedence with more gross sales than in the first entire 9 months of the year. The 2012 financial spotlight will boast dramatic growth penetrating over 13 new markets for Clique Vodka as we enter our new partnership with Total Wine and Spirits. They are one of the largest private retailers of liquor in the country. We look forward to a long lasting relationship with the Total Group.

Internally, the continuous growth of our existing markets continues. We are proud to see Ohio stores receive product and significant planning of the launch is occurring. In Pennsylvania, sales are climbing and the Philadelphia expansion is moving along well. We are diverting efforts to putting more troops on the ground in West Virginia and our Tennessee wholesaling company Saachi Imports is getting ready for another large delivery of Clique Vodka.

Looking ahead, the next few months for Premier are explosive. We are in negotiations with several celebrity brand ambassadors for Clique Vodka and exploring the launch of a new value priced tequila. For our current tequila, Don Pantaleon Tequila, changes are in the works as we have exciting ideas to push product west to explore markets that have heavy sales of tequila in the well division.

Packaging improvements to our existing brands, new relationships, and new products are all on the horizon for 2012. We want to thank all of the new contributors toward investment of time and money into our project. As always, I would like to thank our customers that drive our business and as we finish the winter remind everyone to be careful and responsible when enjoying winter libations with our products.

 

Sharing In Success,

Holiday Successes

The winter begins and the end of the year holidays and festivities will be arriving. At Premier Innovations Group, we are preparing ourselves for an explosive 2012. New traditional media campaigns will be noticeable as we enter the biggest time of year for liquor sales. The launching of Clique Vodka in a new state seems like a common occurrence that leads us to the cultivation of lucrative new partnerships adding to our family. It is eminent that we will expand our foothold throughout many new states including presence in the West Coast in 2012.

We are committed to providing our customers a portfolio of great valued brands, and the brainstorming and planning of new brands is a key focus for Premier Innovations Group. Our investors can also be excited about time we are putting toward the importing services for other clients and an exciting year of growth revenue ahead

Holidays are a great time to unwind with our friends and family with a fine libation or two. We choose Clique Vodka and Don Pantaleon Tequila not just because we own them, but because as an international importer we had the opportunity to import and develop any formula with a blank canvas of components and we chose these products because we love them. We stand behind them. We encourage you this holiday to “put our products to the test”; you will not be disappointed. Instead, you will be pleasantly surprised by superb quality and value unprecedented in an industry run by companies who focus more on their bottom line than what’s best for their customers.

Our Premier family wants to wish all of you a wonderful, safe and careful holiday stemming from awareness of your surroundings and focus on responsibility. Abusing alcohol and inappropriate indulging ruins our culture and brings a bad name to an amazing industry that we want to enjoy together for years to come. We are asking for your support in drinking Clique Vodka intelligently and Don Pantaleon Tequila dubiously this holiday season.

Yours In Success,
Noah Cohen (CEO)
