Cocamo Distributing, Inc.
We offer a product line from Spirits of the USA; they are American made products out of Charleston, SC., and are relatively new to the Florida market. Currently I believe that we and one other distributor are the only ones to carry their products in the state of Florida. This line is 90 proof liquors, and again are American made, with the exception of the blue agave that is in our tequila. This line currently includes Coyote Vodka, Coyote Mango Vodka, Coyote Jalepeno Vodka, Deadman's Spicey Rum, Deadman's Mango Rum, Rattlesnake Tequila, Rattlesnake Jalepeno Tequila and Black Widow Gin. In addition, Spirits of the USA is currently working on adding to this line of products.
Also, just this week we kicked off some other American made products out of Michigan. These products are also new to Florida, and at this time we are the only distributor that carries them in the state. Our market seems to be really excited about these products, and they are doing quite well. This line of products includes Sharkwater Tropical Liqueur, Swig Lemonade Liqueur, Swig Sweet Tea Liqueur, and Bohemian Spiced Whisky.
Cocamo Distributing has chosen Fintech to process our alcohol payments. We are excited about the opportunity to grow our existing market share through the use of Fintech as Fintech just makes life easier.

TAG Wine Group, LLC
They say that necessity is the mother of invention. Nothing could be more true when considering Long Island's current position in the domestic wine retail market nationwide. Hence, TAG Wine Group was born.
TAG Wine Group is Florida's specialty wholesale distributor of wine exclusively from Long Island, NY. With only approximately 3,000 acres planted under vine, Long Island is aptly considered a 'boutique' wine region. Its production, dwarfed by that of the AVA's of the west coast wine producing states, has historically been of little interest to the larger, non-specialty distributors outside of the NY Tri-State area. "Lack of consumer demand" has been cited as the primary reason for the scarcity of Long Island wine on the shelves of many Florida retailers. We at TAG Wine Group believe that consumer demand is created by discovery, which is facilitated by product availability and exposure. We also believe that Long Island's AVA attributes make it far too valuable to continue to be ignored.
For example, in terms of planted acreage, Long Island wine country is roughly equivalent to Gigondas, a small appellation in the Southern Rhone Valley in France. Gigondas enjoys far better distribution in the state of Florida than Long Island ever has, yet a far greater percentage of Long Islanders have been transplanted or have established seasonal vacation residence in the state of Florida than those who hail from Gigondas (or France for that matter). Should it be so difficult for them to locate Long Island wine (here in the U.S., on the same coast...) when they can locate wine from Gigondas with such ease?
Our mission is twofold: To increase the availability and variety of Long Island wine in the state of Florida and to inspire consumer demand through awareness and education.
We are very appreciative of our relationship with Fintech. The EFT and EDI capabilities they empower us with, as well as the ROI benefits their services provide made the decision to enroll in Fintech an easy one. If we could help Fintech in any way, it would be to sing their praises to the retailers we seek to do business with. TAG Wine Group offering Florida's beverage retailers Long Island wines AND Fintech solutions... now there's a win-win.
