More than 1,000 "Free the Five Wives" t-shirts had been sold during the past three days and sales continue at a brisk pace. They will use the proceeds from Idaho sales of the shirts to sponsor the music festival at the level they had originally committed.
"We feel bad that we can't get the shirts out fast enough," Conlin said.
Despite the fact that Five Wives Vodka won't celebrate its entry into the Idaho market at the event, Underground Herbal Spirit, the company's other product will be there.
Conlin also said the company spoke with it legal council this morning and is considering any and all options available regarding the Idaho's disallowing of special orders of Five Wives Vodka. A decision regarding the next step is expect the first of next week.
"Honestly, we're getting a little tired of the description of our product that is being given by the state of Idaho and it is apparent that many people don't agree with Jeff Anderson," Conlin added. "We're high-quality product at a great price. I'd like to see his tasting credentials to determine we're average. Our customers disagree."
The company is receiving an incredible number of requests for online purchase. Due to many state laws the company can not ship directly, but is hoping to have an online distributor available in 26 states early next week. Announcements will be made when appropriate.
Five Wives Vodka is a high-quality, affordably priced vodka made with Wasatch mountain spring water in Utah. It is distributed in UT, WY, and will be added to MO and TX within the next 30 days.
