As a successful American entrepreneur, Sam Walton once said, “High expectations are the key to everything.” The same is true about the makers of Ole Smoky Moonshine, which makes its debut this month in Sam’s Clubs across five states – Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and South Carolina – with plans to expand into Florida, California, and several other states in the coming weeks. Placement that is traditionally saved for long established brands; Ole Smoky Moonshine breaks the barrier and establishes a heavily sought after home on Sam’s Clubs shelves.
Sam’s Club members will be able to purchase Ole Smoky’s Moonshine Cherries (soaked in 100-proof moonshine) and Apple Pie Moonshine (just like grandma’s apple pie, but with a kick), all packaged in traditional 750 ml mason jars.
Distilled and bottled in Gatlinburg, Tenn., Ole Smoky Moonshine is fast becoming a recognized competitor among consumers of premium spirit brands. The brand currently ships Ole Smoky’s products to retail stores in Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee and Vermont, with plans to land in California and Texas, among other states, this year. In light of growing demand, Ole Smoky Moonshine expects to be in potentially all 50 states by next year.
Ole Smoky Moonshine recently participated in the Aspen Food & Wine Classic and was a favorite among attendees and influencers and resulted in national exposure on CNN, as well as other media outlets. They also recently received national coverage from the Wall Street Journal,Travel Channel and NBC’s Today Show. Additionally, the entertainment industry has also taken notice with celebrity fans including Seth Meyers, Jason Sudeikis, Dierks Bentley, Academy Award-winning musicians Three 6 Mafia, Jake Owen, and Angie Harmon, among others.
