NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 07/09/13 -- Panache Beverages, Inc. (OTCQB: WDKA) successfully defeated the efforts of Caribbean Distillers, LLC, d/b/a Florida Distillers ("FCD"), to enjoin Panache, its CEO, James Dale, its director of investor relations, William Gerhauser, and three former employees from using allegedly confidential information provided by an FCD employee and from competing against FCD in bulk alcohol and third party bottling markets.

A Polk County, Florida judge not only dismissed FCD's motion for relief entirely after FCD failed to present sufficient evidence to support any injunctive relief against any of the defendants, but it did so without the need for Panache and the other defendants to even complete their defense to the motion. In addition, the court commented that it found compelling the brief testimony of the one witness Panache called over the two days of hearing that none of the information FCD alleged was misappropriated was, in fact, confidential.

As of July 8, 2013 a Panache Beverages, Inc. countersuit was still pending.
