Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine Receives 2013 Rising Star Award

GATLINBURG, Tenn., March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine has been awarded the title of Rising Star, based on the latest sales results published by the Beverage Information Group. Ole Smoky is the sole moonshine brand among the list of the 2013 Rising Star honorees. Fueled by consumer demand and a growing national distribution footprint, the brand sold close to 100,000 cases (9-L bottles) of its six moonshine flavors in 2012, an increase of over 200 percent from 2011.  The winning announcement will be published in the April online and print editions of Cheers, Beverage Dynamics and StateWays magazines.

An authentic American brand located in the heart of Appalachia, Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine attributes its remarkable growth to strong community ties and a tradition rooted deeply in the 200-year-old art of distilling quality moonshine.  Founded in 2010, when the state of Tennessee first legalized the commercial distillation of moonshine, the company has since grown to become the proud creator of more than 100 local jobs and a major tourist attraction in the Great Smoky Mountains. 

"Connecting with our heritage and offering a quality product that is different from anything people have tried before is what Ole Smoky Moonshine stands for," said company co-founder Joe Baker.  "We like to see people come together to support our brand, and we're thrilled to be named one of the industry's 2013 Rising Stars. We're eager to build on this momentum and continue moving forward in 2014 and beyond."

About the Beverage Information GroupThe Beverage Information Group has been reporting on the alcohol industry for nearly eight years and has acknowledged and awarded Growth Brands within the industry for roughly 12 years.  The group's Rising Stars award recognizes promising products that are relatively new to the market and have proven themselves worthy through notable growth and have limitless potential for continued success.
