Default Prichards goes global

And this from Phil Prichard:

Prichards' Distillery Is On The Move
Source: Pritchards'
Jan 3rd
Prichards' Distillery, Inc. of Kelso, Tennessee is pleased to announce the addition of Terry Marshall as its USA Sales Manager. Formally the District Sales Manager for Cruzan Ltd. Terry is a good fit for the young company producing fine rums and spirits in Tennessee. Prichards' Distillery, Inc. has grown rapidly and it was imperative that they gain the knowledge and expertise of an experienced sales manager and Terry Marshall was just what the company needed.
World Headquarters of Prichards' Distillery, Inc. is now Kelso, Tennessee. Much of Europe will have the opportunity to enjoy the fine rums and spirits produced by Prichards' Distillery, Inc. this year. The introduction of its brands at the ProWein Show in Dusseldorff, Germany in March and the weak dollar provided the company the incentive to explore export opportunities in Europe. An alliance with the Firm Haromex in Bruggen, Germany has made the opportunity a reality.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.

As much as I would like to try their rums, Tennesee has never been very high on my list of vacation spots. Hopefully this portends wider availability in the US as well.

I only live 36 miles South of Kelso, in Huntsville, AL, and I've never been tempted to go either.

I've been there and it's a nice little place, near Fayetteville.

While you're in the neighborhood, visit Jack Daniels and George Dickel, two nice whiskey fellas that live just up the street from Phil Prichard.

My girlfriend and I will be making a road trip from FT. Worth,TX to Maine in late spring. We are swinging South to Memphis for BarbeQue, And Pritchards for rum..The Great Smokey Moutains, and hey, maybe even some whiskey too. A country ham along the way is on the list...It's a great place to visit we think!

I recommend, after visiting Prichard's little schoolhouse distillery, head east on 64 toward the Great Smokey Mountains Park. (I've taken many little small roads through small towns in these areas, but not sure you're up for that.) If you can find Highway 129, just north of Robbinsville, NC, (Deal's Gap) it's the wildest ride I've ever taken in my sportscar. Remember the dam that Harrison Ford jumps off in the Fugitive? It's right there. Also nearby is Fontana Dam. Take Highway 19 through Cherokee, visit the Nantahala River and the get on the Blue Ridge Parkway, which you can take all the way past Roanoke, VA if you're not in a hurry.

I would agree that driving through Great Smoky Mountains National Park is just about the nicest setting you can ever experience a 30 mile traffic jam in. Also, while hiking the Appalachian Trail, your left foot will be enjoying Tennessee for quite some time (and after Roan Mtn., both feet). Just be sure not to drive through Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, or you will lose all hope for the future of civilization.

Try entering the park via Rt. 73 from Townsend to avoid some of the traffic and tackiness. Or check out the Cherohala Scenic Skyway a bit farther south. Unless Dollywood is your idea of a good time.

Yes, I've been to Tennessee on many occasions, but usually just on my way to somewhere else.
