hello, sorry to be a newbie but we are currently distributing in TN but have a company in CA that would like to distribute us. As you can imagine we are excited. When they just sent us their first PO they included 1 case of each of our spirits as free samples. Our current TN distributor pays for their samples at a discounted rate. With no experience with this I wanted to ask if free samples is a typical situation with a distributor or out of the ordinary? Thanks for any help. Cheers!
