TORONTO and LOS ANGELES, April 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Tinley Beverage Company Inc. (the “Company" or "Tinley") is pleased to announce that its manufacturer in the Coachella Valley, California (“Manufacturer”) has shipped an inaugural batch of the Company’s next-generation, single-serve, cocktail-inspired products.

The recently-commissioned Phase 2 bottling line has eliminated the Manufacturer’s capacity constraints, and it significantly reduces the production cost and turnaround time for each individual batch. The facility is now capable of producing 250,000 bottles per month, representing 3 million in annual capacity, as previously disclosed. Upon completion of the Company’s Phase 3 line in Long Beach, California, this line would be available to move to a cannabis-licensed facility in another US state. The Phase 3 facility in Long Beach will have a capacity of 12 million bottles annually. The bottling line for this facility has arrived in California from Italy, and it will be installed upon completion of the necessary tenant improvements in the building.
The inaugural pilot batch of the margarita-inspired Stone Daisy™ has shipped to one of the Manufacturer’s distributors, and it is expected to be released to dispensaries upon passing mandated state testing. Production of the Moscow Mule-inspired High Horse™ and the hard liquor-inspired Tinley™ ’27 products will commence this week as well. As with the launch of the Company’s prior products, this initial batch will be shipped as a “pilot” batch and will be made available at a limited number of dispensaries, intended primarily for consumer demonstrations and awareness. Upon passing state testing, the Company will begin production of additional batches of these products in our updated 2019 packaging (as shown above) with a goal of fulfilling the approximately $200,000 of backorders that it has accumulated during installation of the bottling line. The Company has also received strong indicative demand for its’ Tinley ’27, liquor-inspired products, which the Company is also planning to ship in fiscal Q2. There is no assurance that all of these products will ship or that the Company will be in a position to recognize this revenue if these shipments occur.
The is the culmination of an extensive process of development of our facility, equipment, team, science, packaging and products. We are now in a position to produce and ship at scale, supported by an expanded sales team and distribution network. We intend to launch a robust marketing program throughout the peak Spring and Summer months and into the fall holiday season, primarily targeting key Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area markets
said Ted Zittell, director of Tinley.
