House of Saka, producers of cannabis-infused wines from Napa Valley, have secured exclusive, North American rights to produce and distribute Gem + Jane Cannabis-Infused Beverages from Vintage Wine Estates.
The female-targeted beverage was launched by CannaCraft, one of California’s largest cannabis companies, in 2021.
This agreement allows the brand to maintain and grow its roots in the cannabis-infused beverage sector, the company says. Vintage Wine Estates, which acquired the rights to the brand in 2022, plans to separately launch hemp-derived CBD-infused beverages under the Gem + Jane label in the coming months.
The addition of Gem + Jane to the House of Saka portfolio of brands expands its footprint in the California market and the infused beverage sector overall, providing an alternative to their alcohol-free, cannabis-infused wines.
“The addition of Gen + Jane cannabis-infused beverages to the House of Saka portfolio allows for deeper penetration into the legal cannabis sector, increases top and bottom-line revenue and drives operational efficiencies,” says House of Saka Co-Founder, Tracey Mason. “We look forward to stewarding this great brand into the future.”
In partnership with licensed manufacturers, House of Saka plans to go into production with Gem + Jane in June for a July 1 release.
