The ownership team behind St. Mark’s Chop Room in Nichols Hills has purchased Guthrie-based Prairie Wolf Distillery, according to 405 Magazine. Drew Tekell, one of the four operating partners, said the team has purchased the entire LLC, which means all current inventory has been sold as well. The sale was final on February 5.
Brothers Hunter and Blake Merritt, along with their families, launched the distillery – offering Prairie Wolf Vodka – in 2013. Since, they added Loyal Gin, M Whiskey and Dark, a coffee liqueur.
“We were at a point in the life of Prairie Wolf where we needed to make a decision,” he says. “Do we continue to grow, increase marketing, expand the brand? Blake and I have always owned apartments, and we decided that it was best to focus on one thing, and we chose real estate.”
