Young Tulsa entrepreneur launches successful liquor company

The botanical vodka sold out in the beginning

Tanner Conklin started out doing hair before she tried to buy a liquor store during the pandemic.

26-year-old Conklin says she was slighted on the sale of the store and decided to give making vodka a try last year.

She named the vodka Slight Spirits after her experience trying to buy the liquor store after the deal turned bad.

She started with a Google search on how to start a vodka company and followed the many complicated steps.

“When I first launched on January 22nd, it was a big hit,” said Conklin. “Everybody sold out everywhere and I’ve sold through almost two pallets in about three weeks.”

Her botanical vodka includes flavors of pepper and lavender, with a hint of mint.

Conklin says she owes part of her success to her TikTok videos.

She plans to branch outside of Oklahoma next.
