VuQo Holdings Corp. Announces Acquisition of CALABARZON Distillery
APR 25, 2012 - 11:11 ET
FOR: VUQO HOLDINGS CORP.
NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - April 25, 2012) - VuQo Holdings Corporation (
After a successful closing of the acquisition, the said distillery joins VuQo Holdings Corporation to exclusively supply the necessary Lambanog or coconut wine that the company needs in making its alcohol/ beverage brands. El Coco Wine has been in the business for 10 years specializing in flavored Lambanog in the Philippines.
El Coco Wine Distillery is located in the southern part of Luzon and has been distilling for local brands that are sold in local stores in the Philippines. The company specializes in export quality "Lambanog," a coconut-based liqueur that can only be found in the Philippines. Lambanog, a liqueur that originates from the sap of an unopened coconut flower, is said to have an alcohol content ranging from 80-166 proof and is one of the top cottage industry product of the Philippines.
Rene Esteban, newly appointed C.E.O. of VuQo Holdings Corporation, said, "We feel this acquisition will be vital and that acquiring our own distillery will be more beneficial for our growth as we plan to expand our line of products into different variants that will truly put the Philippines in the map as one of the biggest distributors of coconut-based beverages."
