Tis the season to be jolly for any number of reasons, but one of them has to be that we are mere days away from the onset of the college bowl season. And nothing goes better with the holidays than a bunch of amazing NCAA bowl games.
With the exception of our amazing sponsor, Sugarlands Distilling Co., that is. Because as you may have already heard on RTI Radio, Sugarlands Shine is the official spirit of RTI during the 2014 holiday season. And well, well beyond.
Which is why the RTI Bowl Pick’em contest is such an incredible thing. Because through it, RTI is bringing together two things that will make your holiday season even brighter. The best bowl pick’em challenge out there AND Sugarlands Shine. Enter one and you might get to enjoy the other.
Because RTI’s Bowl Pick’em Challenge is sponsored by Sugarlands Shine. And the fantastic folks at Sugarlands Distilling Co. are awarding prizes to the top three finishers. Our grand prize winner will receive a $200 gift card to SDC’s Gatlinburg location plus Sugarlands Distilling Company apparel. Second and third place will take home $100 and $50 gift cards respectively.
Which is simply fantastic. Because these gift cards can be used to purchase the gift that keeps on giving. Oh, I’m sure the apparel is awesome. I’ve seen it on their website and everything looks very cool.
But I was actually talking about their award winning jars of shine. Because I can tell you from firsthand experience that the Sugarlands lineup is outstanding. Like their Unaged Rye from the Legend Series. They teamed up with veteran moonshiner Jim Tom Hedrick to make that one. And don’t forget Silver Cloud, their perfectly balanced Tennessee sour mash.
Or their Butterscotch Gold moonshine. I mixed that with some Even Williams eggnog at a party the night after Thanksgiving and took that little shindig to the next level. Touched the cheek of God in the process. I think, at least. Accounts vary.
But one account that doesn’t vary is that Sugarlands Shine will add a welcome dynamic to any holiday get together. After all, there’s a story in every jar.
So what are you waiting for? Click this link to RTI’s FREE Bowl Pick’em: Sponsored by Sugarlands Shine and hopefully win a gift card of your very own. If you don’t already have an ESPN account it will prompt you to create one, but no worries, it only takes 45 seconds.
And when you’re through, do yourself a favor and follow @SugarlandsShine on Twitter. Then watch this incredibly cool video that will tell you all about their story. We’ve loved working with these guys because they’re the real deal. Check it out to see what we mean.
And good luck everyone! We’ll keep you posted with updates on the site which will list the standings.
