The new American vodka brand Smithworks Vodka, co-owned by country music star Blake Shelton, has expanded its distribution into five additional states.
The spirit is now available in Iowa, Michigan, Louisiana, Ohio and Nebraska.
Smithworks launched in the mid-Atlantic last summer. Initial markets were Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Pennsylvania.
“Watching Smithworks more than double its market availability within the last year has been exciting and with Blake Shelton playing an integral role in the brand’s growth, we are looking forward to seeing what growth looks like for the American-made vodka over the next year,” says said Troy Gorczyca, Smithworks brand director.
Smithworks Vodka has a suggested retail price of $19.99 for 750-ml. bottle and is also available in 50-ml., 1-L and 1.75-L bottles.
The brand represents a partnership between Shelton and Pernod Ricard. The vodka is made with corn from Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma, and water from Lake Fort Smith, the company says.
