Next Century Spirits (NCS) has acquired a majority of the Southwest Spirits & Wine (SSW) brand assets. The acquisition represents a pivotal step in NCS’ vision of expanding its brand portfolio as it continues down the path of becoming one of industry’s top spirits suppliers.

Through this transaction, NCS will acquire the Nue Vodka brand which has an approximate annual volume of 220,000 9L cases across 29 states, along with The Other 49 Bourbon, Sixty Men Bourbon, Calamity Gin, Henderson Whiskey, and George Ocean Rum.

“We are thrilled to expand our portfolio with this collection of brands, including Nue Vodka,” said Anthony Moniello, co-CEO of Next Century Spirits. “Our ambition is to become a trusted, long-term spirits partner with a diverse portfolio and the recent acquisition of SSW brand assets allows us to diversify our business and accelerate our timeline.”

These brands join NCS’ fast growing portfolio that includes Bear Fight American Single Malt Whiskey, Numbskull Cool Mint & Chocolate Flavored Whiskey, Creek Water American Whiskey, and the ready-to-drink Caddy Cocktails.

“We’re excited to expand the Next Century Spirits portfolio to meet the demands of consumers,” said Rob Mason, co-CEO of Next Century Spirits. “Southwest Spirits portfolio is a fantastic collection of young brands that fits key consumer trends and gets us into the vodka, gin, and bourbon categories in a big way.”
