Tinley Beverage Company has completed the planned Phase 2 expansion of its bottling facility in Coachella Valley, California, to produce Tinley’s cannabis-infused beverages.
The next-generation versions of Tinley’s cocktail-inspired, non-alcoholic cannabis beverages are expected to soon go into production at this expanded facility so that products can hit store shelves in April.
Beverages will contain updated cannabis solubalisation technology, packaging and clean label claims that comply with new California regulations.
The bottling facility currently produces up to three million bottles per year.
For its single-serve beverages, the company projects an average wholesale price of $3- $4 per bottle, while for the multi-serve beverages, per bottle price range is estimated to be $15- $17.
The company also stated that it is on schedule to finish the build-out and installation of the bottling line at its Phase 3 facility in Long Beach, California.
Tinley’s flagship Phase 3 facility will have an annual bottling capacity for approximately 12 million bottles per year. It will also have a space plan for another two bottling lines to accommodate additional beverage formats and capacity.
The Phase 3 Facility will also feature Tinley’s distribution facility, which will allow the firm for a controlled DSD distribution model.
Following licensing of the Phase 3 facility, Tinley plans to move the bottling line in the Phase 2 Facility to one of its key expansion jurisdictions elsewhere in North America.
The company expects to start production of $200,000 worth of the next-generation Moscow and Margarita Mule-inspired, non-alcoholic and cannabis-infused beverages.
This quantity shows backordered and estimated demand from distributors so far this year.
The company plans to also focus on the production of its non-alcoholic Tinley ’27 products, which are inspired by Cinnamon Whisky, Amaretto, and Rum.
Tinley Western USA president Rick Gillis said: “We’re excited to be launching our next-generation products, with a significant amount of dispensary demand already in hand as a result of the positive consumer response we received for our initial products. We believe that Tinley is the first-mover with liquor-inspired, non-alcoholic beverages that contain cannabis 2.0 solubalization technology.”
