Tinley’s is employing BevCanna’s white-label partnership model for its Canadian production and distribution.
TORONTO and VANCOUVER — The Tinley Beverage Company Inc. announces that it has signed an agreement with BevCanna Enterprises to produce Tinleys™ Classics, the Canadian versions of Tinley’s California-produced “Tinley’s™ Tonics” cannabis beverages. Tinley’s other product family, “Tinleys™ ‘27”, will continue to be produced at Peak Processing Solutions in Ontario. The Company also reported updates on the production at Peak.
BevCanna will produce and distribute the full line of Tinley’s ready-to-drink, adult beverage-inspired sparkling Tinleys drinks, Canadian versions of Tinley’s Tonics, currently available in California. The line includes the Moscow Mule-inspired Tinley’s™ Tonics High Horse™. BevCanna will also produce Tinley’s blue agave & lime-inspired Stone Daisy, the juniper berry & lime-inspired Juniper Sky and the blue agave, grapefruit & lime-inspired Mystic Dove. The beverages will be modified slightly for the Canadian market to reflect Canadian consumer tastes, formulations, packaging, and regulatory requirements. As in California, the award-winning beverages will be offered in 12 fl. oz bottles, each containing a micro-dose of THC to provide a light effect comparable to a single adult beverage.
Tinley’s is employing BevCanna’s white-label partnership model for its Canadian production and distribution. The model allows non-licensed partners to enter the Canadian cannabis market seamlessly and in a compliant manner. Tinley’s will leverage BevCanna’s extensive experience in producing beverages at scale, as well as its Sales License partnership for distribution to provincial buying groups. Tinley’s has committed to annual MOQs (minimum order quantities) as part of this white-label agreement. BevCanna is now in full commercial production, with imminent delivery for various clients to provincial distribution boards, including the Ontario Cannabis store, the largest distributor of cannabis products in Canada.
Great North Distribution will sell the Tinleys™ products throughout Canada. Great North is Canada’s first national sales broker for legalized adult-use cannabis. Established by the owners of Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits, the world’s preeminent distributor for beverage alcohol, Great North Distributors has reach across every province in Canada, with established relationships and expertise in working with Provincially-owned and operated retailers and private retailers alike.
“We’re very excited to be selected as the Canadian manufacturing partner for Tinley’s carbonated products,” said Melise Panetta, President of BevCanna. “Their award-winning products have an exceptional following with consumers internationally, and we’re eager to offer them to the Canadian market.”
“We’re very pleased to be adding another prominent white-label partner to our growing roster of leading brands,” continued Ms. Panetta. “We’re confident that we’ll be able to bring Tinley’s to market quickly, while also satisfying the strong demand we’re seeing for additional full-service, white-label beverage manufacturing services.”
“BevCanna has state of the art equipment that can uniquely accommodate the requirements of our complex formulation methodology and formats,” said Ted Zittell, director of Tinley’s. “We’re excited to bring our products from California back to our home country and are confident these beverages will provide new, unique and compelling cannabis beverage options for Canadian consumers.”
