Gemini to look after Cherry Heering and Xanté

12 September, 2011

Gemini Spirits & Wine, which claims to be the fastest growing spirits and specialty brand development company in the US, is to become the exclusive US importer of the Peter Heering and Xanté brands.

Danish Cherry Heering has been produced since 1818, and is an essential ingredient in the world-famous Singapore Sling as well as the Blood & Sand cocktails

Xanté is a cognac-based pear spirit that has been distributed in Europe for more than a decade . The story of Xanté is said to start in Belgium more than 100 years ago when liqueur manufacturer Jean Heinrich was confided with ancient, all natural liqueur recipes by a Benedictine monk.

Xanté is said to be a blend of four-year-old cognacs matured in French Limousine Oak barrels, which draw out the rich amber color and fragrant notes of spicy vanilla and pear. Xanté is available in more than twenty markets

Gemini is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Sazerac Company and is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.
