Here are more details on the termination of this contract.
This follows the termination of the Cockspur distribution contract in the US.

Cockspur was being bottled in Hood River Oregon, the town not the river, the last few years. Cockspur has moved their bottling operations back to Barbados so the product you'll be getting in a few months will be from Barbados.

Before being bottled in Hood River, Oregon Cockspur was bottled in Metairie, Louisiana.
