REGULATORY COMPLIANCE

In the United States, at the federal level, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau of the U.S. Department of the Treasury (TTB) regulates the spirits and wine industry with respect to the production, blending, bottling, labeling, sales, advertising, and transportation of beverage alcohol. Similar regulatory regimes exist at the state level as well. To ensure compliance with numerous laws and regulations governing the alcoholic beverage industry, Sundance Spirits Company maintains an infrastructure of federal and state licenses and permits.

We also apply for TTB Certificates of Label Approvals (COLAs), handle formula reviews and TTB Laboratory submissions, register our brands in all states where business is conducted and manage required reporting, distributor appointments, bonds and price postings. Compliance management is challenging and complex. Our experts have the knowledge and experience to handle your work in a professional and timely manner, whether you are an industry novice or the largest supplier of alcoholic beverages.

IMPORTATION AND LOGISTICS

Working closely with licensed Customs brokers, we specialize in streamline importation of alcoholic spirits, wine and beer to the United States. We handle the compliance and paperwork required to satisfy the rules imposed on commercial alcohol shipments by such government agencies as The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Customs and Border Protection agency (CBP).

We manage our suppliers’ logistics requirements, including ocean freight and in-land transportation. We handle both 20- and 40-foot container cargos and Less Than Truckload (LTL) freights. Our brands’ inventory is warehoused in Customs-bonded warehouses, in major transportation hubs, to ensure optimal freight rates. We also handle sample shipping by obtaining required COLA Waivers from TTB, filing FDA Prior Notices to satisfy the FDA requirements of the Bioterrorism Act of 2002 and facilitating the Customs clearance procedure.

SALES AND MARKETING

In the United States, which generally prohibits spirits and wine manufacturers from selling their products directly to consumers, we sell our brands either to distributors or (in states that directly control alcohol sales) to state governments that then sell to retail customers and consumers. Our team of continuously evolving marketing and sales professionals work alongside our wholesale partners, acting as local brand advocates for consumers and key retail accounts.

Alcohol industry is highly competitive. Brand recognition, brand provenance, quality of product and packaging, flavor profile, and price affect consumers’ choices among competing brands. To influence consumers’ buying decisions we develop and execute creative marketing campaigns that include advertising, merchandising in bars, restaurants, and shops, expert endorsements, social media and word of mouth. Our dedicated tasting events department handles brand activations and promotions throughout the country, educating customers and promoting sales.
