Four Virginia craft beverage companies will exhibit at the Barra Mexico trade show in Mexico City on June 9 and 10. The four companies, Catoctin Creek Distilling, Chesapeake Bay Distillery, Navy Hill Soda + Tonic and Square One Organic Spirits, will offer samples of their products in the “Virginia is for Spirits Lovers” themed booth.
The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Office of International Marketing and its Latin American trade representative are supporting the distilleries in this international event:
“Craft beverages, alcoholic and non-alcoholic, are a growing segment of our agriculture economy, and we are thrilled that these companies are utilizing VDACS’ international marketing resources to grow their brands and sales revenue in markets outside of the U.S.,” said VDACS Commissioner Jewel Bronaugh. The VDACS Office of International Marketing assists agriculture and forestry products producers, including specialty foods and beverages companies, to find profitable export opportunities around the world.
Mexico is Virginia’s seventh largest market for agricultural and forest products. Barra Mexico is the largest premium spirits and bar event in Latin America. More than 135 spirits, craft beer, wine and bar exhibitors will present their products and new ideas to industry professionals at this event, which attracts restauranteurs, hoteliers, bartenders, importers, distributors and brand managers from all of Latin America.
