Rising country star and established songwriter, Sonia Leigh, continues to make headlines as she announces a partnership with Tennessee based Prichard’s Distillery. With a distillery at Nashville’s historic Fontanel Mansion, Prichard’s is a family-owned business behind a line of artisan crafted whiskey and rum products. As part of the partnership, Leigh’s name and likeness will be used for upcoming promotions, including a billboard along Nashville’s I-65 Highway.
Prichard’s recently sponsored Sonia’s event at the headquarters of the Country Music Association. Attendees and CMA staff members sipped on a selection of Prichard’s cocktails while Leigh performed and was presented with a wall plaque for her success within the genre as both an artist and hit songwriter.

ABOUT PRICHARD’S DISTILLERY: Prichard’s Distillery crafts award winning whiskey and rum products. Their spirits are produced with a hands-on-process, and it is a delicate mix of science and art. Prichard’s specializes in making their products in small batches, so they have complete control over every bottle of Prichard’s that leaves their distillery. Prichard’s Distillery was founded in 1999, and they operate two distilleries in the state of Tennessee. The Kelso location is housed in an old school building built in 1939, and the second facility is located in Whites Creek at the Fontanel campus, former home of Barbara Mandrel. Both facilities offer tours and tastings. For more information visit: www.prichardsdistillery.com.
