Fort Lauderdale, Florida--(Newsfile Corp. - October 27, 2020) -  Splash Beverage Group, Inc. (OTC PINK: SBEV) (www.SplashBeverageGroup.com) ("Splash" or the "Company"), a holding company building a leading portfolio of beverage brands, is excited to announce that the Company has secured distribution and Manufacturing capabilities in Greater China for its hydration and recovery brand TapouT Performance and distribution for its brand SALT Naturally Flavored Tequila by entering into a distribution agreement with China-based American Software Capital ("ASC") (www.Softbankglobal.com/en/).

In addition, Chen serves as China Chairman of National Investment Bank Association of America, and Chairman of San Juan Mercantile Bank &Trust.

According to a report from Mersol & Luo, a company providing intelligence and strategy solutions for brands in Asia, China is the largest market for alcoholic beverages in the world, and foreign alcohol is seeing significant growth. Sales of imported alcoholic beverages are still concentrated on the coast and large urban areas, but demand in the less developed interior is rising, offering great potential for established businesses and new entrants alike.

Initially, ASC will import and distribute TapouT and SALT Tequila beverage products in China as it works with Splash to position the Company for manufacturing capabilities over the intermediate term in order to streamline operations and maximize profitability in the region.

ASC is also well-positioned to seamlessly incorporate additional brands as Splash continues to acquire and/or internally develop new brands, product lines and concepts.

"The thirst for Western brands continues to increase across Asia," commented Robert Nistico, CEO of Splash. "We believe our relationship with ASC, one of China's top manufacturers and distributors, will position Splash to capitalize on this trend. ASC has extensive relationships with top retail chains, and I'm confident this will further our advantage as we enter the Chinese market."
