So Makers had sales increase of 44% in the 1st Q. I think a lot folks stocked way up when they thought proof was changing:cool: I predict a big drop in 2nd Q.

Guess they won't need that Clermont wheat whisky then.

Skinnygirl is up 140%. That is crazy. I have seen the vodkas and wines on a bunch of clearance racks lately. My distributors beam managers have even stated that they cant give the stuff away.

Makers sales were crazy for a month. First stocking up on the 90, then wanting the 84 bottles for collectibles.

I imagine that Skinnygirl is selling better in places like CA and FL than TN.

Considering that supplies are supposed to be tight, I'm surprised that they even had enough product to sell for there to be a 44% increase.

Makes the cynic in me wonder.

I bought three family size bottles to help them out.

Best regards, Tony

I have been to all three places and can verify this through my own observations.
