A small business with a big dream to produce drinkware customers could use for life!
How we started
Smoky Mountain Growlers was founded by husband and wife Rick and Christin Disler. As small business owners they continue to run daily operations in East Tennessee. Rick gave up his 20+ year career as an engineer to start the design process and search America for a manufacturer to produce this new line of drinkware.
After months of talking to just about every stainless steel manufacturer from the east to west coast Rick and Christin came to the stark realization that the drinkware itself had to be manufactured in China. Still today not a single double wall vacuum insulated piece of drinkware by any company is manufactured in the USA. A sad story we hope to change one day.
Believing in America
Although the stainless vessels are manufactured in China we work hard to source and use as many quality USA products in our process as possible. 75% of all powder coating and printing is done with US materials and labor in the USA, moving to 100% in 2018. 100% of Cerakote and Engraving is done with US materials and labor in the USA. This makes our products a little more expensive than the competition but we believe it's worth the investment in our country and it's future.
Believing in the product and having a strong desire to provide America with high quality hygienic drinkware Rick and Christin not only invested their life savings including 401k and years of company held stock but hope you see the value in paying a little more for a responsibly sourced and developed product keeping toxins out of your beverages and plastics out of our landfills.
