AUBURN, Maine, Oct. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- "Today the State released RFP# 201309606 entitled 'Maine Wholesale Spirits Business' seeking a new contractual arrangement for the period 2014–2024. Since 2004, the private contract to run Maine's wholesale liquor operation has been a famously bad deal for the State of Maine. The Governor and the Legislature have now adopted a very well thought out plan to solicit competitive proposals that will improve the State's financial standing by tens of millions of dollars annually. It is rare for a small state like ours to find such dramatic benefits and financial gains without making sacrifices or imposing new taxes; this is going to be a large and long overdue windfall for Maine. For two years we have been on a mission to help make it a reality. Dirigo Spirit is 100 percent Maine-owned, financed and managed, and we are submitting a proposal designed to be a win for the State, a win for the agency retailers and a win for all Mainers." – Ford S. Reiche, President, Dirigo Spirit Company
