Pasmosa is a premium Spanish sangria containing high-quality Tempranillo, Grenache, and Airén varietals, fresh Mediterranean fruits, natural sugar, and a 12% alcohol content. Our goal is to replace the “house-made” sangrias in bars and restaurants, traditionally made from stale wine, inexpensive fruit, and occasional rum or tequila, with our premium, imported, ready-to-pour sangria. We also aspire to have our authentic sangria go head-to-head against the few competitor brands currently available in grocery and liquor stores across the country, changing the landscape of the sangria market. Pasmosa is already available in 750ml bottles, 3 Liter bag-in-box, and 5 Liter bag-in-box - each in three different varieties: Red, Rosé, and White. Additionally, we have just finished the design and prototyping of our RTD (Ready-To-Drink) 250ml aluminum cans to compete in the new beverage market segment which includes single-serving wines, seltzers, and other “lifestyle” beverages. With Pasmosa, every glass is a celebration!

Regional Sales Manager
In January of 2010, Jeff launched Fireball Whisky for Sazerac, on the West Coast. This was a third expansion market for the brand with San Diego as the starting point for the West. He approached the market with a grassroots campaign connected directly to consumers and built relationships with on-premise accounts. Heavy focus was on bartenders and servers, building a driver for brand awareness and sales, coupled with consistent promotions at key accounts.
After the first year of exponential growth in San Diego, Jeff expanded the market to Los Angeles and Orange County. By the end of 2013, Fireball case sales reached 300k for the Southern California market.
In 2014 Jeff took the position with Deep Eddy Vodka as the Western Regional Marketing Manager. This would be his second new brand launch in an expansion territory. Initially, the focus was on product sales into both on-prem and off-prem accounts for product placement. Jeff worked in tandem with the Market Managers to get these placements building the brand base.
Jeff would then go on to find, book, and execute an array of promotional events. These including on/off-prem sampling, local event promotions with up to 1k in attendance and larger food, music and spirit festivals with up to 10k in attendance. On average, over 250 events would be carried out per year throughout Seattle, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Diego.
