The board of directors of The Peligroso Spirits Co. named Rick Scully as president of the San Clemente, Calif.-based company. Scully first joined the company in January as the vice president of sales.

With a 20-year background in the beverage industry, Scully has experienced success with a diverse collection of spirits brands and distribution channels, the company says. His experience and know-how will be an invaluable asset to the company as it prepares to grow in 2014, it adds.

Since the company’s launch in May 2010, Peligroso has expanded its distribution channels and recently launched a cinnamon-infused tequila called Peligroso Cinnamon. For more information, visit
