Prairie Organic Spirits recently expanded its portfolio of farm-crafted spirits with the launch of its first-ever vodka botanicals collection, Prairie Organic Sustainable Seasons. Crafted with sustainably sourced ingredients that are USDA certified organic, allowing for unique flavor profiles within each expression. From tart grapefruit to crisp apple and even sweet watermelon, the inspiration for each flavor combination was carefully selected based on the sustainable ingredients available. Each 60 proof bottle is naturally-flavored and free of chemicals, pesticides and gluten, contains zero sugar, carbs or fat and has only 75 calories per every 1.5 fluid ounce serving.
“As we looked to grow our Prairie Organic Spirits portfolio and add a botanicals expression line, we wanted to ensure that it stayed true to our roots and mission of using only sustainably sourced ingredients grown on organic farms, and the Sustainable Seasons line does just that,” said Meghan Murray, VP of Marketing at Phillips Distilling Company. “By infusing our award-winning organic vodka with the perfect balance of fresh fruit and herbal flavors, our new botanicals line is the perfect accompaniment to any cocktail – and a true farm-to-bottle experience that tastes just as delicious as it sounds.”
In addition, Prairie Organic Spirits is giving back to the community that harvests the corn to produce these spirits – the organic farmers. In partnership with the Rodale Institute, Prairie Organic Spirits created the Spirit of Change Fund that champions the next generation of organic farmers by helping more farmers go organic. By donating one percent of all sales, Prairie Organic Spirits is advancing its mission to help make a better future for our land and farmers.
The new Prairie Organic Sustainable Seasons are available in three flavor combinations:
- Grapefruit, Hibiscus & Chamomile
- Watermelon, Cucumber & Lime
- Apple, Pear & Ginger
GSN’s Thoughts: The apple-pear-ginger vodka has a nice apple character that is light and fruity. The pear is more subtle, while the ginger adds a gently warming heat that gradually grows over a minute and then fades. The grapefruit-hibiscus-chamomile vodka is even more subtle, with the grapefruit being the most noticeable flavor. Again, it is light and fruity, but the fade is quick and slightly dry. Of the three, the watermelon-cucumber-lime is our favorite. All three flavors stand out in equal intensity with a very flavor forward blend that will stand up to a mixer ranging from club soda to tonic water. Overall, these are a welcome addition to the flavored vodka world, being subtle, naturally flavored and unsweetened.
