Top drinks supplier changes and partnerships: February

Gruppo Montenegro x E&J Gallo 

E&J Gallo Winery was named the exclusive US importer for Italy’s Gruppo Montenegro, whose portfolio includes the Italian spirits Amaro Montenegro, Select Aperitivo and Vecchia Romagna Brandy.

Gruppo Montenegro was founded in 1885 by Stanislao Cobianchi, and today produces brands including Amaro Montenegro, Select Aperitivo, Vecchia Romagna Brandy, and Rosso Antico Vermouth.

Select Aperitivo was created in 1920 in Venice, and is made from a selection of 30 botanicals and a key ingredient in the classic Venetian Spritz cocktail.

“As a privately-owned Company, we are honored to partner with the Gallo family and appreciate their commitment to compete in the luxury spirits business.

“With this partnership, we look forward to unleashing the full potential of our portfolio in the US,” said Marco Ferrari, CEO of Gruppo Montenegro.

Gruppo Montenegro joins Gallo’s US luxury spirits portfolio, which includes The Dalmore Single Malt Scotch portfolio, Diplomático Rum, Jura Single Malt Scotch, Argonaut Brandy, and Germain-Robin Brandy.
