Not sure is posted before

 

South Africa is now bottling Jack and Cola

 

Since this is a locally bottled product it has a "A" distributor code and not a "B" code

yup - another variation we "need" I like the "SPIRIT COOLER" on the front as well as the A557

 

now there's a point, will this be the code on all Jack Daniels pre-mixes ? ie if they release Jack and Ginger or Lemonade woukd that code still be the same ?

Currently South Africa only has the Jack and Cola premix, but if we have to do other flavors it will be the same A557 code

 

The B421 is the Real Great Brand Company distributor code for imported spirits and the A557 is the Real Great Brand Company distributor code for locally produced spirits

 

South Africa law requires the producer or importer/distributor of the beverage to have their code on the label.

The code will also indicate (probably for tax reasons) if locally produced or imported spirits. Locally produced will have a "A" code and imported will have a "B" code. Previously I thought the A and B where interchangeable so the premix would have had a A421 code, but  i now think a separate code needs to be applied for either local or import, therefore the A557.

 

If the distributor changes then there will be a change in the code (B28, B259 and currently B421)

 

I hope this makes sense
