Patco Brands Acquires Kyla Hard Kombucha

January 19, 2023

Patco Brands, known for wine-based cocktail brand Rancho La Gloria, which reached 1.4 million cases last year, has acquired Kyla Hard Kombucha for an undisclosed sum. Lavender Lemonade, Kyla’s signature flavor, has become the fastest-selling 16-ounce offering in the hard kombucha category, Patco says. Other flavors in the lineup include Sunset Trio, Lychee Lemonade and Coconut Crush.

“With the continued success of their Sunbreak Series and an enhanced lineup of innovative flavors we believe Kyla will continue to drive large double-digit growth moving into 2023,” said Patco COO Russell Stanley. “Better-for-you is here to stay and we are pleased to enhance our portfolio offering to cater to this growing audience and occasion.” The Kyla brand will continue to be produced in Hood River, Oregon and sell its portfolio within existing markets with current wholesale partners.

The Wine Group took a minority stake in Rancho La Gloria in 2021. Patco’s portfolio also includes Dough Ball flavored whiskey, and an agave-based Rancho La Gloria Ranch Water seltzer.—Daniel Marsteller
