Since he won his episode, Rigsby said Sugarlands Distilling Company will make an unlimited run of his recipe, which was a berry-infused vodka. He’s not sure when it will be released, but thinks either sometime at the end of this year or beginning of next year.
Along with the show being a good opportunity, Rigsby said distilling is something he use to do outside of the show and is working towards opening his own distiller.
“I feel like that’s the best opportunity I can have to just get on and put myself out there that way people can know my name and who I am,” he said. “I do have plans of opening a distiller somewhere between Springfield and Indian Lake. I’ve been here all my life basically so why not keep it with where you’re from.”
