Sources confirm that Southern Wine & Spirits and Glazer’s will merge to form what will be North America’s largest wine and spirits distributor. Glazer’s executives and board members explain, “Glazer’s and Southern are both industry-leading organizations…and we share a similar goal – to win the marketplace”.
The new wholesale operations will represent over 150 million cases of wine and spirits across 41 states. The headquarters will remain at Southern’s current location in Miami. At one point in 2008 the two distributors attempted to combine, however, the intricacies of the deal led the setup to fall through.
