Murphy Distributors Welcomes Punzone Organic Italian Vodka to Its Exclusive Distribution List

PunzoneBranford, CT – Murphy Distributors announced today it has obtained the exclusive distribution rights to Punzone; the first imported Italian Ultra-Premium vodka line directly from Italy’s preeminent food and wine region for the State of Connecticut.


“We are delighted to add Punzone Organic Italian Vodka to our elite distribution portfolio.  Frank Guerrera, the CEO and Founder of Punzone, is a first generation Italian American from New York City. Guerrera’s ambition was to craft an entire line of Vodka products using only all natural, high quality, organic ingredients,” said Matthew Murphy, president of Murphy Distributors.


“He shares our perseverance, passion, and tenacity to break into an industry primarily dominated by established players.  Guerrera painstakingly persisted, paying extreme attention to every detail and authenticity to his product and every detail to the business. He pushed the limits and brought the integrity of Punzone to market as it is today,” Murphy added.


Punzone was formed with Guerrera’s belief and pledge to use only the freshest, all natural ingredients which he considers the key to great flavor and superior quality.  By all accounts, he succeeded.


Punzone family of vodkas include Punzone Italian Organic Vodka 80 proof which is uniquely handcrafted in a five-column distillation system from Italian wheat grown in Piemonte, Italy.  It is precisely blended with pure water from the Italian Alps to ensure that no unnatural additives taint its unmistakably smooth consistency.

Punzone’s Blended, not flavored, Vodkas offer two unique varieties – Punzone Blood Orange Originale 34 Proof is an exquisite fusion of the ultra-premium Punzone Vodka enlivened with a delicate blend of red Sangiovese grapes and blood orange from Calabria.

Punzone Lemoncino 34 Proof (not Lemoncello) is a delicate blend of the ultra-premium vodka refreshed with a unique fusion of white Chardonnay grapes and Sicilian lemon.

Punzone Vodka has received the International 5-Star Diamond award consecutively since 2012 by the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences.


“Punzone Organic Italian Vodka is synonymous with our rapidly developing reputation to place and grow supplier brands in the Connecticut market,” Murphy said.  “We are currently delivering to retailers and restaurants throughout the State of Connecticut.”
