Acquired Taste cognac gains distribution in California, Florida


After being present in several stores, bars and restaurants in the western New York area, Buffalo-based Mingo Imports LLC is preparing to expand into two more markets.

Gain distribution in California and Florida with our luxury boutique brand Acquired Taste Cognac. Distributed by the Californian distributor 88 Spirits Corp and the electronic distributor RNDC/ Liberation distribution. The initial launch being mid-2020 at the height of covid-19.

Mingo Imports started with our Cognac XO (Extra Old) aged in French barrels for 10 years in our limited edition bottle, which won the silver medal at the 2020 Newyork spirits competition. Distributed by local beer distributor Try -it distribution co.

In the same way that tequila is designated for exclusive production only in Mexico, the same rules apply to cognac produced only in Cognac, France. Anything produced outside the region is just considered your standard brandy, which has no bearing on a top product like cognac.

Our producer and the aged barrels that remain until the start of the extraction and bottling process reside in Cognac, France. Our family of producers has a long history in the spirits industry working with cognac houses such as Martell & Courvoisier.
