CNS and Private Cask Imports joined forces in 2014 to market baijiu to mainstream U.S. audiences.

Palm Beach-based Private Cask Imports (www.privatecaskimports.com) is a licensed US national importer, brand marketer and developer of Super Premium Spirits and Fine Wines, with particular expertise in introducing little-known appellations and brands to mainstream distributor and retail audiences, and then shepherding the brands’ growth.

Steaven and Diena Chen, second generation CNS owners as well as siblings, alongside Manny Burnichon, President and CEO of Private Cask Imports, feel that the two companies complement one another extraordinarily in terms of expertise and relationships.
