In Beverage Industry’s 2015 New Product Development Outlook study, 18 percent of respondents named cinnamon as a top-selling flavor for2015. Although we are early into the new year, it seems as those the readers of the magazine are carrying that assessment in their voting records.

Sugarlands Distilling Co., Gatlinburg, Tenn., and its Tickle’s Dynamite Cinnamon Moonshine brand were named Beverage Industry’s January Readers’ Choice Product of the Month winner in the online poll, garnering 58 percent of the votes.

Tickle’s Dynamite Cinnamon Moonshine is a 70-proof, cinnamon-flavored spirit designed for sipping or use in cocktails, the company says.

Readers also showed their support of other brands in the poll, which was conducted between Feb. 6 and Feb. 20. Simply Juice Drinks obtained 9 percent of the votes for the No. 2 position, while Crabbie’s Cloudy Alcoholic Lemonade received 7 percent of the votes.

Stone Brewing Co.’s Smoked Porter w/ Vanilla Bean and Skinny Cow Iced Coffees each obtained 5 percent of the votes to round out the Top 5.
