Ben E. Keith to distribute Trinity River spirits

June 3, 2022
Fort Worth-headquartered companies partner to move brewer’s vodka, whiskey, and bourbon made with collected rainwater.

Ben E. Keith recently secured a new distribution deal with Trinity River Distillery.

The broadline foodservice distributor headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, is the third-largest independent beer wholesaler in the country. With 14 sales and distribution centers, the company operates throughout the state of Texas and distributes import beers, craft beers, spirits, wine products, and nonalcoholic beverages.

“We are very excited and honored with the opportunity to partner with Trinity River Distillery,” said Kevin Bartholomew, president of Ben E. Keith Beverages. “(New Trinity River CEO and president) Tom Ingham and team have done a fabulous job building their business of crafting high-quality and authentic brands.

“Their approach to business, marketing, and innovation provides us with a great foundation for a successful partnership.”

Trinity River, also headquartered in Fort Worth, launched in 2012 with the goal of “making some of the finest tasting spirits produce in the great state of Texas.” The company’s brands are made with rainwater collected in 13,000-gallon storage tanks located in an iconic downtown facility that used to house Ranch Style Beans.

“We are incredibly excited to partner with Ben E Keith,” Ingham said. “Their rich history for bold innovation and quality partnerships, with customer service at the forefront of everything that they do, has helped them create an incredible portfolio of brands.”
