SAN DIEGO — JuneShine, the hard kombucha business launched in June 2018, has signed over theirSan Diego distribution rights to the newly formed Scout Distribution.
JuneShine was founded by outdoorsmen and women seeking a healthier and more environmentally friendly alcohol. Since opening their North Park brewery and tasting room, JuneShine has self distributed to over 130 accounts in San Diego County. The Company is currently constructing a larger brewing facility to expand capacity. In anticipation of its growth, the Company evaluated multiple distribution partners, a process that resulted in signing with Scout Distribution.
“We have been humbled by the demand for our product in our home market, and we are grateful for the many accounts that welcomed us self distributing. We are aware of the growing demand for JuneShine, and as we continue to open accounts both in and outside of San Diego, it is imperative that we do so in a professional manner – it became clear that we needed a partner. We care deeply about our product quality, our accounts, and our customers, and therefore choosing a distributor was not a decision we took lightly. Scout’s passion for fostering growing brands, understanding of quality control, and best in class management team made them a clear winner for the job. We have full confidence in their capabilities,” said Greg Serrao,Co-founder and CEO, JuneShine.
“We are thrilled to partner with JuneShine for multiple reasons. The hard kombucha category is relatively new and absolutely on fire. We feel that the brand that Greg and Forrest have built will resonate across several demographics, and that’s important to us as a distributor as our goal is to curate a well rounded and unique portfolio. The combination of a better for you alcohol brand and the active lifestyle element JuneShine exudes is extremely attractive and we’re excited to be part of their overall growth,” commented Anthony Levas, Vice President, Scout Distribution.
