Caffeinated Club Chicago Launch Event At Public Hotel Celebrates Distribution Partnership With Southern Wine & Spirits Illinois

1796463_216468848552138_37355247_nCaffeinated Club, a recently launched line of flavored club soda waters with the added boost of caffeine, celebrated their Chicago market launch at the elite Public Hotel in the Gold Coast neighborhood of Chicago last week with over 200 influencers, tastemakers and media professionals. The event featured Caffeinated Club flavors Raspberry, Orange-Grapefruit, Lemon, and Clear, which is unflavored, mixed with Belvedere vodka on ice paired with enticing appetizers from the world renowned Pump Room. Industry authorities enjoyed the Caffeinated Club cocktails late into the evening as company president and founder Rocky Mosele and his team worked the room encouraging everyone to #GetCaffeinated.

The event was also a cause for celebration as Caffeinated Club had just entered an exclusive distribution agreement with Southern Wine & Spirits in Illinois. Caffeinated Club launched in the Chicago market this winter and aims to transform the way America gets its daily caffeine as health-conscious consumers steer away from energy drinks and colas. The agreement, which went into effect officially on February 20, 2014, will cover Illinois and increase the market saturation of Caffeinated Club.

Their vast portfolio of beverage products, including Fiji water, Republic of Tea teas, Absolut vodkas, Jim Beam whiskeys, Patron tequilas, and thousands more, ensures Caffeinated Club is in good hands.

“Southern Wine & Spirits is an outstanding choice as a distribution partner, not only in Illinois, but as we expand into other markets in the near future,” said Rocky Mosele, President of Rocky’s Beverages, who owns and operates Caffeinated Club.
