Major Peters’® Bloody Mary Mixes Earn Top Industry Awards
St. Louis (July 7, 2015) - Arcobasso Foods, a leading producer of custom dressings, sauces, and beverage drink mixes for the restaurant and food industry, recently received recognition from two renowned industry competitions. The Spirits International Prestige (SIP) Awards honored Major Peters’ The Works Bloody Mary Mix with a Platinum Best of Class Award while Hot & Spicy earned a Gold and the Original flavor Bloody Mary mix took home a Bronze medal. All three flavors were also honored with the SIP Consumer Choice Awards, of note due to SIP’s reputation of reflecting consumer tastes through its spirit-judging competition, unaffected by industry bias.
Meanwhile, the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition awarded the Major Peters’ premium Bloody Mary brand with Gold medals for The Works and Original and a Silver for its Hot & Spicy flavor. “For the second year in a row, Major Peters’ has taken a Best in Class SIP Award,” commented Pat Newsham, president of Arcobasso Foods. “And with the medals from the LA Spirits Competition, it validates what we’ve known all along… when people taste our Bloody Mary mixes, they realize what they’ve been missing with other brands which is a truly unique flavor profile that is preferred by so many Bloody Mary drinkers today,” he added.
The Major Peters’ brand of Bloody Mary mixes, made with 90 percent or more real tomato juice, is a premium-tasting Bloody Mary mix offered at a value price point. The Major Peters’ line consists of Bloody Mary mixes in three flavors plus a bar basics lineup ranging from margarita mix to triple sec, all packaged for ease of use on premise and for retail sale.
