Minneapolis-based Tattersall Distilling announced the addition of two new distributors in Michigan and Illinois—both with full state coverage. This will be the first time Tattersall enters Michigan and it will be a new partnership in Illinois. Two strongholds in the Midwest, these new agreements will continue to expand Tattersall’s footprint in the upper Midwest.
“We are incredibly invested in the success of these two markets,” says Jon Kreidler, founder and chief officer of Tattersall Distilling. “In Chicago, the largest city in the Midwest, we have a dedicated salesperson that has been an incredible representative for the brand. Michigan shares so many of the same qualities that we love about our homes in Minnesota and Wisconsin, including a love for the outdoors, a vibrant food scene, enthusiasm for supporting local craft beverages and environmental stewardship. Not only do we source our cherries and blueberries from Michigan, but I have personal ties to both states where I lived and studied.”
In Michigan, Tattersall is working with Imperial Beverage for distribution. In Illinois, Tattersall partnered with distributor Romano Beverage. Both distributors are family-owned, have a strong focus on craft spirits and have teams that understand selling into Tattersall’s key markets.
Tattersall will enter each market with roughly a dozen spirits, including a mix of signature staples and all-natural liqueurs. With a strong fan base in the Midwest already, increased distribution of Tattersall’s spirits will continue to meet its growing demand.
