Sugar Island is the first new product innovation line in the company’s growing spirits division, Trinchero National Spirits. Sugar Island rums are made from Caribbean sugar cane, and are available in two flavors: Spiced and Coconut.
Trinchero Family Estates – a wine industry leader for more than 60 years – expanded into the spirits category in September 2012. The spirits division was formed with the mission to represent a portfolio of high quality premium spirits and mixers that would complement the company’s wine brands.
"As wine and spirits have now surpassed beer as the leading alcoholic beverage of choice, TFE has the experience, innovation and distribution to provide consumers with the brands they want," noted Bob Torkelson, president and COO of TFE.
