Tinley Ships Inaugural Batch of its Tinley™ ’27 Liquor-Inspired Cannabis Beverages
TORONTO and LOS ANGELES, April 23, 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 inaugural batches of the Company’s liquor-inspired Tinley™ ’27 cannabis beverages. This release is approximately one month ahead of schedule, reflecting the capabilities of the Company’s recently-commissioned Phase 2 facility.

Like Tinley’s margarita and Moscow Mule-inspired products, the Tinley™ ’27 products were crafted by formulators who had created national brand liquors. They therefore contain authentic extracts, flavors and spices that are commonly found in such products. They also contain just 10 calories and 1-2 grams of natural cane sugar per serving – roughly 1/10th of leading adult beverages – and are vegan as well as gluten-free.
The cinnamon whisky-inspired “Cinnamon Cask” is based on what has become the most popular shot drink in the USA. It is also commonly mixed into cocktails with ginger brew, black tea and lemonade. The Italian Amaretto-inspired “Almond Cask” is commonly used to mix with coffee, sodas, fruit juices, as well as in popular cocktails including the Alabama Slammer and Amaretto Sour (which can now be consumed as cannabis-infused mocktails without alcohol) and on desserts including tiramisu.
The completion of these products one month ahead of schedule reflects the enhanced capabilities of the Company’s recently-commissioned Phase 2 facility. The company continues to benefit from the elimination of the production and revenue constraints that had existed with the Company’s Phase 1 equipment. As with all of the Company’s products, the inaugural batches of Tinley™ ’27 that shipped to one of the Manufacturer’s distributors were produced as a “pilot” batches. As such, they will be made available at a limited number of dispensaries, intended primarily for dispensary outreach, consumer demonstrations and product awareness. Upon the pilot batches passing state testing, the Company will begin scaled production of additional batches of these products in its updated 2019 packaging (as shown above). These additional batches would be in addition to the $200,000 of backorders that the company has for its margarita and Moscow Mule-inspired products, as announced last week. As previously disclosed, 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 – however the Company intends to keep the market abreast of shipments as they occur.
With these additional batches scheduled for completion in May, the Company is nearing a point where its line will have more line time available for co-packing clients. The Company is accordingly working to consummate longstanding discussions with prospective brands.
We’re delighted to have completed the inaugural production of these two new products so soon after shipping our ready to drink products. Our team continues to apply skills honed at the USA’s leading brewers, distillers and beverage alcohol distributors to create true CPG-quality cannabis beverages. We now intend to similarly apply best-of-breed marketing and visibility programs throughout the summer in Los Angeles, San Francisco and in key California markets
said Ted Zittell, director of Tinley.
