To Begin Filling Orders From Newly Signed National Distributors
Attitude Drinks (OTC.BB:ATTD - News), an innovative beverage brand development company, announced today that it has received its first truckload of Vanilla flavored Phase III® Recovery, the world's first shelf-stable, real milk recovery drink developed exclusively by Attitude Drinks. Attitude Drinks now can begin to fill orders for both Chocolate and Vanilla Phase III Recovery from its newly signed distributors. Product distributors include High Five Distributors, Sand Dollar and Great State/Blue Coast, which cover markets in New York City, Florida and New England, respectively.
Roy Warren, CEO of Attitude Drinks, said, "We continue to receive very positive preliminary results from sales of our Chocolate Phase III recovery drink in Palm Beach County Fitness centers and select drug, grocery and convenience stores in New York City. We have averaged or exceeded about four cases per month with our chocolate flavor only in fitness centers throughout South Florida, and are now excited to add our highly anticipated flavor, vanilla, to the coolers."
Warren added, "We continue to implement a distribution strategy that is focused on the fifteen largest markets for beverages in the United States and will continue to pre-sell in four sales channels: grocery, convenience, drug and specialty sports and fitness. We are also in the process of developing key working partnerships with regional direct store delivery beverage distributors in the U.S. We look forward to announcing additional distribution partnerships in the near future."
Attitude Drinks Incorporated is an innovative beverage, brand development and marketing company with a focus on delivering experiential, functional and healthful beverages. Attitude’s competitive advantage lies not only in its innovation but in its experienced and highly professional team who provide expertise in beverage innovation, market/trade introduction, product implementation, and marketing initiatives.

With Attitude’s sights set on the premium energy drink and functional beverage categories, Vis Viva™ is to be followed by products currently in the exploration and development stages.
Phase III® Recovery
Attitude Drinks is proud to announce the launch of Phase III®‘Recovery’, a revolutionary, innovative sport and fitness recovery drink melding the unparalleled benefits of milk, nature’s most perfect food, with the very latest scientific research. Using patented technology, this cutting edge recovery drink is the only to offer 100% USDA Grade 'A' Real Milk, the most recognizable source of protein to the tired body. Additionally, formulated with an optimal scientific balance of carbohydrates to protein essential to physical recovery, Phase III® ‘Recovery’ is truly cutting edge and in a league of its own.
Phase III is reduced sugar, low fat, grade A flavored milk that features 29% less sugar and more than 2 times the protein of regular chocolate milk. In creating this revolutionary drink, we filtered out lactose and much of the sugar naturally found in low fat milk. While Phase III has no protein added, the concentrated mineral and nutrient rich milk provides 35 grams of protein and the taste and mouth feel of low fat chocolate milk. This process enables strategically balanced protein and carbohydrate levels and fortification with a robust list of nutrients and electrolytes. Phase III is packaged in 14.5 ounce re-sealable, environmentally “green” bottles.
Phase III Recovery can currently be found in over 100 retail outlets around New York City and in Brevard and Palm Beach Counties in Florida. These include drug stores, fitness centers, colleges, groceries and bagel shops. Seventeen Walgreens stores have authorized Phase III on an individual store basis. Phase III is also available online, and sales are beginning to grow in that area.
Sand Dollar Distributors LLC. is a rapidly expanding, exclusively non-alcoholic premium distribution system in Florida and once the largest Red Bull distributor in the Southeast, Sand Dollar services over 3,500 stores including convenience, nutrition, drug and grocery. They currently range in locations from Sebastian to Key West, Florida.
Great State/Blue Coast Beverages, which carries a reputation as one of the leading beverage distributors in the Boston and New Hampshire markets among C-stores, is responsible for the distribution of several successful brands.
High Five Distributors, which is the master distributor for Power Ball Energizing Juice, currently services 3,000 retail stores within the New York Metro Area.
Attitude Drinks Inc. has recently arranged a sponsorship with Olympic snowboarding gold medalists Kelly Clark and Seth Wescott. Clark, a two-time Olympic medalist in halfpipe, is widely considered one of the greatest female representatives of the sport.

Wescott, the first and only gold medalist in snowboard cross, is widely considered the sport's gold ambassador around the world. The Maine native is a four-time U.S. National champion, three-time World Championships medalist and eight-time Winter X Games medalist.
Phase III, the world's first shelf stable, real milk recovery drink. Phase III is a reduced sugar, low fat, grade-A flavored milk recovery drink that contains 29 percent less sugar and more than two times the protein of regular chocolate milk. It is a rich and creamy milk recovery drink that delivers 35 grams of naturally occurring protein. In creating this revolutionary drink, lactose and much of the sugar naturally found in low-fat milk, is removed using a patented ultra filtration process. Attitude Drinks' proprietary process enables them to deliver scientifically balanced protein and carbohydrate levels as well as fortification with a robust list of nutrients.
"Unlike nearly every other competitor on the market, Attitude Drinks' Phase III uses real milk, tastes great and leverages cutting edge science to give any athlete who drinks it the best recovery experience possible," said Lewis Goldberg, Managing Director of KCSA Strategic Communications. "Attitude Drinks' management team has built a solid foundation to create a national brand, drive tremendous sales and really provide a world class product to the market."
Attitude Drinks has selected KCSA Strategic Communications as its integrated marketing and communications firm of record.
