New brands of beers, rums and wines are to be made available in Cayman following the provisional approval of a new Distributor Liquor Licence.
At a special meeting held on Thursday at Customs Headquarters, Chairman of the Board Mitchell Welds apologised to applicant Mr. Eduardo E. Bodden for not being able to hear his application sooner. Mr. Bodden had previously presented his case in September.
Mr. Bodden, of E & S Distributors Ltd., Oasis Warehouses, North Sound Road, Block 14C, Parcel 312, George Town, said he planned to bring in better prices with his new products and this would help tourism and increase sales.
He said if granted the licence he would carry on his business under the specifications of the law.
When questioned by Board member Bernice Richards about the new products, Mr. Bodden said in his 34 years in Cayman he had never seen the liquor products here change.
‘I think it will work. It depends on if the board grants this licence for me,’ he said.
