December 4, 2008 – Monmouth County, NJ – Attendees at Barack Obama's Inauguration will surely taste ‘The Spirit of Liberty' in an overwhelming sense of patriotic pride, but also, potentially, by the glassful should several leading caters opt to pour ‘The Spirit of Liberty' in cocktail glasses during celebratory dinners and festivities. If that happens, the staff of CMSC Spirits Group, the Morganville, New Jersey-based boutique spirits and liqueur producer that bottles ‘The Spirit of Liberty® America's Cream Liqueur' would be ecstatic.
“Ever since Obama was elected,” states CMSC president Tina LoBosco, “interest from both retailers and caterers throughout the mid-Atlantic states has spiked, with sales exceeding expectations by a minimum of 25% for the region.”
Thanks in part to the product's name, its flavor blend that includes hints of bourbon, apples, and cherries, and its beautiful Statue of Liberty replica decanter, CMSC Spirits hopes for a ‘Tipping Point' moment where the appearance of ‘The Spirit of Liberty®' at an inauguration reception dinner could put the product on a national stage, and behind bars, from sea-to-shining-sea.
“The Spirit of Liberty®' is bottled in two collectable Statue of Liberty decanter sizes, the 9-inch tall 100ml, and the 17.5-inch tall 750ml, and an easy-pour 750ml round bottle for bars and restaurants. Because of its packaging, LoBosco states, “We've fielded countless calls from DC-area caterers and event planners interested in using the product for centerpieces, place setting ornamentation, and goodie bags for inauguration events. We've shipped a lot of samples that have resulted in a lot of positive accolades and some hefty case orders. If the ‘The Spirit of Liberty®' makes it onto the President's table, I don't think we'll be able to contain ourselves.“
Perfect for any Patriotic event, from Memorial Day to Independence Day, ‘The Spirit of Liberty®', was introduced to the marketplace in 2005 and immediately won the 2006 San Francisco World Spirits Competition Silver Medal. As the only cream liqueur produced in America, ‘The Spirit of Liberty®' has a higher alcohol content of 36-proof, is a 1/3 less calories, and is smoother and lighter than the nation's leading cream liqueur, without the typical pasty aftertaste of conventional creams. Its subtle combination of American aromas and flavors work in harmony to deliver an exceptional taste experience that allows drinkers to savor the flavors they like the most. Additionally, The Spirit of Liberty ® blends smoothly with coffee, foods and desserts, or it can be enjoyed straight up, on the rocks or in your favorite chocolate martini.
“The Spirit of Liberty® through its harmonious taste and unique packaging is a perfect blend for those who want to toast the American Spirit year round,” concludes LoBosco.
Because of its unique Statue of Liberty replica decanter, ‘The Spirit of Liberty®' is also one of the fastest selling liqueurs in the Duty Free Shops at New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport.
