NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- American Born Moonshine celebrated its two-year anniversary with a nod to the past and a push to the future. Founded in 2013 by Patrick Dillingham and Sean Koffel as the lead product of Windy Hill Spirits, American Born Moonshine has expanded its reach to 25 states, while also staking its claim as the fastest growing moonshine brand in the United States, doubling its sales volume over the past year.
"2015 has been an incredible growth year for American Born Moonshine," says co-founder Sean Koffel. "We are now available in 25 states across the nation and we have expanded our reach with national marketing campaigns in music and racing as well as local bartender campaigns to help give people the best moonshine experience. We are looking forward to a great rest of the year with more growth on the way for 2016."
In the past year, Windy Hill Spirits' first brand has achieved overwhelming success. American Born Moonshine is identified by many as the most authentic and best tasting in the category and is poised to be the category leader. Earlier this year, Windy Hill Spirits kicked off a number of partnerships with large national retail and grocery chains including Kroger's, Walmart, Safeway, and Albertson's and expects this to be a significant area of future growth for the brand. In addition, American Born Moonshine has grown geographically and organically over the past twelve months, doubling sales volume and depletions in the same time frame.
"We have seen tremendous positive feedback on American Born Moonshine since we rolled this out in Florida earlier this year," said Eric G. Pfeil, vice president of sales, Premier Beverage Company. "The volume has surpassed our initial expectations and projections. Additionally, the folks from ABM have been very responsive with the market needs, and have provided excellent resources. We are looking forward to continued success with the brand and with Windy Hill Spirits as a whole."
To celebrate its incredible growth over the past two years, American Born Moonshine will be unveiling a new program called #sharetheshine, which will honor the bartenders, retailers and bootleggers that serve our drinks and share our moonshine this fall and winter. American Born Moonshine will be utilizing the hashtag #sharetheshine to track pictures of bartenders serving these participants and will select the most creative image as a winner every two weeks. The winner will be contacted and will receive an American Born Moonshine crate filled with the best "ABM Moonshine Bootlegger gear." To participate, people just need to like or follow @AmericanBornMoonshine on Instagram and post their most creative image embodying #sharetheshine. Participants can tag a friend or two they'd like to share the shine with and then hashtag #sharetheshine. Winners will be chosen randomly.
