Monarq Managing Director Robert de Monchy commented: “Having our main office in Miami, we have seen many trends in the spirits category gain momentum in South Florida.

“We started seeing the J.F. Haden’s products in many bars & restaurants, also on cocktail menus and in local liquor stores, so our team started investigating and learned the product is actually from Miami.

“We reached out to the team at Tropical Distillers, met with Buzzy and his team, saw their passion and learned about the outstanding product quality. We immediately knew it was a brand we could bring to market in our region as well as USA duty free, including the cruise ships.”

The new partnership will bring J.F. Haden’s Craft Liqueurs to consumers in the Caribbean, Latin America and US duty free markets.

Tropical Distillers Founder and CEO Buzzy Sklar added: “We are confident that Monarq will represent our brands [brilliantly] in these new markets and can’t wait to get started.”
