Marty,Thanks for confirming the wholesaler change in Massachussetts, USA.

I was aware that Winebow has been the importer of JM Rhum in the Northeast USA. I don't know if that has changed. I have never seen Preiss listed as an importer of JM Rhum though.

Any ideas why a Mass, USA distributor of their (Preiss) products would pick up the JM line?

Apologies, I must have got my wires crossed! I know that MSWalker used to distribute Rhum JM. I don't know the exact circumstances, but they gave it up (franchise laws in MA mean that they had to; no other way). I don't know where Preiss came from in my rum-addled brain. All I definitely remember is running into the rep from the importer at a trade show, and knowing that his products were split between MSWalker and Atlantic Imports.

That said, when you go to Winebow's website, and click on the English Harbor link under Rum, they take you to Preiss Imports! That said, in MA, Winebow owns Boston Wine, a distributor. I know that they are having certain problems right now, though (don't know specifics).

In the end, my guess: JM will either end up at Atlantic or Boston Wine.

Hope that helps!
