About Iconic Brands


ICONIC BRANDS: FROM CONCEPT TO COMPLETION

 

Iconic Brands mission is to be the industry leader in brand development, marketing, and sales of the highest quality alcoholic beverages by capitalizing on our ability to procure superior and unique products from around the world. Our relationships with internationally recognized celebrities will be leveraged to add value to an already extraordinary product and create brand awareness in unbranded niche categories.

 

BRINGING YOU THE BEST SPIRITS FROM AROUND THE WORLD.

 

Iconic Brands Inc. (“Iconic”) develops, markets and distributes the highest quality, celebrity branded alcoholic beverages by capitalizing on the ability to procure superior and unique products from around the world and brand the products with internationally recognized celebrities. Based in Amityville, New York, Iconic was founded by Richard DeCicco, a beverage industry innovator with over three decades of experience in the global beverage alcohol business.

 

Iconic is under contract with United Spirits who is a federally-licensed importer and distributor of alcoholic beverages. Iconic Brands is also under contract with Dan Kay, who maintains a New York State warehousing license for alcoholic beverages.

 

WHAT WE DO

 

We take your product idea from concept to completion, everything from sourcing, flavor profiles, packaging, design, marketing and distribution. Iconic Brands also has the ability to align your brand with select celebrity endorsement.

 

Iconic Brands is vertically integrated and strategically positioned in New York. Iconic Brands is under contract with United Spirits who is Federally licensed to both import and sell to wholesale licensed distributors in all 51 markets in the United States.

 

The above licenses are tremendous assets that not only represent value in terms of dollars but more importantly time savings for a company looking to “hit the ground running” in its effort to enter the spirits industry.

 

About Bellissima

 

Our commitment to producing the most beautiful collection of Prosecco and Sparkling Wines, all vegan and made with organic grapes, is embodied by our process: from the vineyard- where we work in reverence to our Italian soil and the natural cycles of the vines- to the environmentally-friendly materials we use in our packaging. Like Christie, a life-long vegetarian and environmental rights advocate, we believe it’s vital to preserve the natural beauty of the world around us.

 

About Treviso

 

Located about 50km due north of Venice, in the heart of Italy’s Veneto region, is Treviso, a city known as the original producer of Prosecco. With its rolling hills, its ancient cathedrals, and the rivers Botteniga and Sile flowing throughout its walled urban center, it is a place of unmatched natural beauty.

 

Our vineyards here are cultivated organically, in harmony with the region’s natural rhythms. We work with deep respect for our soil, a unique white limestone originating from the river Piave, which lends Bellissima a uniquely complex floral aroma. We don’t rush nature, but work patiently to achieve Prosecco and Sparkling Wines that reflect the rarified beauty of the region from which they came.

 

About Bivi Vodka

 

BiVi is crafted by Master Distiller Giovanni La Fauci, who began his career when he was only eleven years old.

 

Giovanni is old-school. Using Sicilian fruitwoods from the trees of blood oranges and Sicilian lemons, he only fires his stills when the moon is just right. Says Giovanni, “it has to be a certain moon. If not, go home and go to sleep.”

 


 

About Christie Brinkley

 

Since being discovered by a photographer in Paris while still in art school, Christie has appeared on over 500 magazine covers worldwide, served as a spokeswoman for CoverGirl, and performed on Broadway, in television, and in film.

 

Though undoubtedly beautiful herself, Christie has always endeavored to help others feel beautiful. She started Christie Brinkley’s Authentic Skincare line to help fight aging, and helped create Hair2Wear, which offers women innovative and fashion-forward hair extensions for hair-to-go. Her New York Times best-selling book of beauty secrets, Timeless Beauty, offers guidance on what to eat, how to apply makeup, and what to wear.

 

Given Christie’s commitment to creating and preserving beauty—in herself, in others, and in the natural world—it’s no surprise that her line of Prosecco and Sparkling Wines are imbued with her Bellissima spirit.

 

As she says, “Dream big Bellissima dreams, and may they all come true!

 

 

About Chazz

 

Chances are good that you will recognize Chazz Palminteri from his prominent roles in films such as A Bronx Tale, The Usual Suspects, and Analyze This.

 

Like BiVi, Chazz is proud to be 100% Sicilian. Chazz has long been an aficionado of Continental European vodka, but he shares our passion for all things Sicilian, and became an enthusiastic collaborator during BiVi’s infancy.
