NASHVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)—Windy Hill Spirits, Inc. is proud to report a successful close on its second round of fundraising, building on the strong momentum of the launch of its first brand, American Born Moonshine, in October 2013.
Windy Hill Spirits, based in Nashville, Tenn., was founded in 2012 by Patrick Dillingham, a formerÂ Notre DameÂ quarterback, and Sean Koffel, a formerÂ U.S. Marine CorpsÂ Captain and Iraq War veteran.
American Born MoonshineÂ is a family of moonshine products that honors the tradition of authentic mountain moonshine and the patriotic American rebel spirit. Windy Hill Spirits introduced the brand to Middle Tennessee in October 2013, followed by East and West Tennessee in January 2014. Currently, American Born Moonshine is launching throughout the state of Georgia.
With growth capital secured, the company is primed to build a solid foundation for American Born Moonshine in the Southeast with plans in place for a disciplined, nationwide rollout over the next two years.
â€śWe are so humbled by the support we have received for American Born Moonshine in such a short time,â€ť says Koffel. â€śOur goal has always been to provide consumers with a truly authentic moonshine and to see such a positive reaction is an enormous honor.â€ť
American Born MoonshineÂ is produced and bottled in Nashville, Tenn., and all other elements of the product and packaging are made in the United States, mostly in the South.
The brand offers three flavors: Original, Apple Pie and Dixie. American Born Moonshine Original is a 103 proof, un-aged corn whiskey made from corn, sugar and water. The recipe is high in corn content yet still embraces the sugar to allow for a smooth finish and remarkable mixability. American Born Moonshine Apple Pie is made from a corn base with natural apple and cinnamon flavors and a hint of caramel. American Born Moonshine Dixie is the first-ever sweet tea-flavored moonshine. Dixie is made from a corn base combined with natural tea flavors. Both the Apple Pie and Dixie flavors are 83 proof.
On its path to becoming a national brand, American Born Moonshine will be focused on winning select markets one region at a time, embracing the companyâ€™s fundamental belief of selling whiskey with a handshake.
â€śAmerican Born Moonshine is on an aggressive growth path,â€ť says Dillingham. â€śWe are thrilled to be making more product in order to open up more states, and we are very excited about the future of American Born Moonshine.â€ť
