Busi­ness part­ners Missy Koe­fod and Kristin Wingfield-Koe­fod, the brains be­hind Mid­town’s 18.21 Bit­ters re­ceived na­tional recog­ni­tion for their cock­tail creations as semi­fi­nal­ists dur­ing The New Bev­er­age Show­down. The an­nual com­pe­ti­tion show­cases the prod­ucts and busi­ness plans for 16 dif­fer­ent early-stage bev­er­age brands as part of a two­day pitch com­pe­ti­tion in­ter­wo­ven with BevNET Live, ac­cord­ing to bevnet.com.

“We were se­lected to par­tic­i­pate as semi­fi­nal­ists in the New Bev­er­age Show­down and were up against some stiff com­pe­ti­tion but made it to the fi­nals,” says Missy Koe­fod. “We felt like the prod­uct was very well re­ceived and we’re thrilled to win the Au­di­ence Choice in the fi­nals of the New Prod­uct Show­down.”

Koe­fod tells Ge­or­gia Voice that 18.21 Bit­ters has seen in­cred­i­ble growth over the past year and a half, and as a re­sult, a part­ner­ship has formed with Whole Foods in Ge­or­gia.
