McNeese State University fans now have a new favorite
beverage with the launch of Single Estate Vodka “Geaux Pokes” Edition distilled
by Yellowfin Distillery. The distillery was established in Sulphur in 2017 by McNeese
chemical engineering alumnus Jamison Trouth.

The university has signed a marketing agreement with
the distillery whereby a portion of each sale will go directly to support
Trouth’s alma mater.

“I’m excited to co-brand this special product with
McNeese. The university definitely changed my life and helped me live my dream
so I want to be a part of doing that for other students,” says Trouth.

Currently, “Geaux Pokes” is available at the Yellowfin Distillery in Sulphur at 1716 Burton St., and in area retail stores. For more information, go to http://www.yellowfindistillery.com/
