June 2015

Greetings!

Well, it's official. Summer is here! As you know, here in Maine we really take advantage of the summer months. Between the nice weather, summer concerts, BBQs and beach, there is no shortage of summer fun to be had. The 4th of July is also right around the corner, so let's hope for the great weather to continue so that everyone can get out grilling and enjoy the fireworks.

Speaking of summer fun, the crew from Blue Point Brewery in Long Island, New York are invading the Portland market on Tuesday June 23rd to "Toast the Coast." The Blue Point and National crews will be hitting bars/restaurants all over town to hang out with customers and hand out cool Blue Point giveaways. If you haven't had a chance to drink Blue Point's brews, this is a great opportunity to try their full line of products.

Slices Sangria

Nothing says "a party" like Sangria. And nothing says "Sangria" like Slices. Made in Spain, the country where Sangria originated, Slices combines premium wines with all-natural fruit juice.

Slices Sangrias are made with premium, varietal wines blended with all natural fruit juices. And because they don't use any artificial fruit essences, Slices is a significant step up in flavor and quality. Our Sangrias are brimming with the flavors of just-picked fresh fruit -- lemons, limes, oranges, pineapples, blackberries and strawberries. The ultimate, premium Sangria.

Slices Red Wine Sangria is an intense purple color with beautiful aromas of fresh-picked fruit, a big, bold flavor and a texture that is bright and lively. Their Rosé Wine Sangria is a stunning cranberry-pink hue with a veritable fruit basket of flavors in a smooth, creamy texture. The White Wine Sangria is a crisply refreshing wine that has perfumed notes of flowers and spice that bring an exotic touch to this summertime quaffer.

Until August, Slices' Sangrias has an incredible post-off price. Be sure to contact your sales rep to find out more details. These prices can't be beat and Sangria is a sure bet in the summer!
