You may have seen these squat little fellas in the beer/wine and liquor stores around Decatur over the few months.
In June, United Distributors, a large liquor wholesaler covering Georgia and Alabama, will place Proof in more than 80 package stores, up from the 12 in which it’s now available. To meet demand, the partners have hired a couple of workers just to help make syrup, and recently bought a machine to affix the attractive labels to the 32-ounce bottles that sell for $22.
The mag reports that the syrups were “born out of our laziness”. Apparently after making cocktails for 8 hours, you might not be so excited about mixing one up yourself.
Pinewood joins a host of other local brick-and-mortar establishments in Decatur (Feather Baby, Sawicki’s, etc) that have thriving businesses that extend beyond walk-in traffic.
