The Illinois Liquor Control Commission recently approved the sales of the full portfolio of Eastside Distilling, Inc., spirits in Illinois.
Eastside's award-winning spirits are now available for sale in 12 states as its national sales rollout gains momentum.
"We are extremely pleased to be adding Illinois to the list of states where Eastside spirits are now available for purchase," Eastside Drilling CEO Steven Earles said. " As one of the top five liquor-consumption states, it represents an important milestone as we continue to build our national presence.
"Additionally, we anticipate this approval will result in initial sales of our newly launched Triple Gold Medal-winning Barrel Hitch American Whiskey, as well as the rest of our award-winning family of brands. It's also the 12th state where our award-winning products are now available for purchase, and we expect other states to follow as we work toward increasing our sales nationally,” Earles said.
