The spirits company Milestone Brands LLC today announced the acquisition of American Born Moonshine from Windy Hill Spirits.
Milestone Brands LLC, which also recently acquired Dulce Vida Tequila, was formed in February 2016 by Eric Dopkins, former CEO of Deep Eddy Vodka, and Chad Auler, co-founder of Deep Eddy Vodka.
“American Born Moonshine is an amazing brand that represents the incredible history of American moonshine,” explains Dopkins, CEO and chairman of Milestone Brands, in a press release. “Pat Dillingham and Sean Koffel did a wonderful job bringing American Born to life in an authentic way, with quality and detail, and we are thrilled to be adding a brand to our portfolio that I truly feel will be a leader in its category.”
Dillingham and Sean founded Windy Hill Spirits in 2013. American Born Moonshine has since expanded its distribution to over 25 states, and doubled its sales volume over the past year, the company reports.
The Windy Hill Spirits leadership team will continue to be a part of the brand and Milestone Brands LLC will retain all current field sales employees.
