NEW YORK, June 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Known as the spirit of the Heartland, the award-winning Smithworks Vodka expands its roots to roll out today in the heart of country music. Born and bred in the tradition and values of America's Heartland, Smithworks is distilled three times and charcoal filtered for a smooth taste and clean finish.
Smithworks is excited to debut the American made vodka in the state's capitol alongside an essential member of the Smithworks family. As a country music artist, Blake got his start in Nashville and throughout his incredible career, he continues to represent the values and traditions of America's Heartland.
"A huge part of my life has been rooted in my involvement with country music and my ties to Nashville," said Blake Shelton. "With the brand's expansion to Tennessee, I'm excited to bring our American made vodka to the place that's a second home for me."
Born out of hard work, dedication and an appreciation for celebrating life's simple pleasures with good people, Smithworks is excited to be able to offer the product in Tennessee just in time for fans to enjoy the spirit throughout the summer season with family and friends.
"Crafted with pride and rooted in a passion to create a spirit that embodies the values of the Heartland, Smithworks celebrates the importance of enjoying moments in life with good people and great drinks," said Troy Gorczyca, Brand Director, Smithworks. "We are excited to share Smithworks with consumers in the Music City and across Tennessee because they share the same pride and passion in creating their music as Smithworks has for its vodka."
Launched in early 2016, the American made vodka has already won a coveted gold medal at the 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition for its quality and craftsmanship.
Available now in Nashville, Smithworks will be available across Tennessee in July. Smithworks Vodka has a suggested retail price of $19.99 for 750 mL and is available in select markets across the U.S. including Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and now Tennessee. Smithworks is also available in 50 mL, 1L and 1.75L.
