3 June 2016 - Austin, Texas-based premium spirits company Milestone Brands LLC has acquired US-based moonshine maker American Born Moonshine from Nashville, Tennessee-based whiskey maker Windy Hill Spirits, the company said.

Milestone Brands LLC was formed in February 2016 by Eric Dopkins, former CEO of Deep Eddy Vodka, and Chad Auler, co-founder of Deep Eddy Vodka.

Patrick Dillingham and Sean Koffel founded Windy Hill Spirits in 2013 with the vision to create a moonshine that honors both the tradition and rebel spirit of American moonshiners and bootleggers.

American Born Moonshine has since expanded its distribution to over 25 states and doubled its sales volume over the past year.

The Windy Hill Spirits leadership team will continue to be an integral part of the brand and Milestone Brands LLC will retain all current field sales employees.

Milestone Brands was founded in February 2016.

As a national spirits supplier and acquirer, innovator and marketer of alcohol beverage brands, Milestone Brands' portfolio includes Dulce Vida Spirits, parent company of 100 proof, A certified organic tequila, and American Born Moonshine, a family of moonshine whiskey products that honors the tradition and spirit of American moonshiners.
