heard of Little House on The Prairie and A Prairie
Home Companion with Garrison Keillor, but I've never heard
of Prairie Organic Vodka. On top of that,
I've heard about organic all sorts of things, as well as all
sorts of kosher other things, but organic and kosher vodka
- whoever heard of such a thing? Well, we both have now. Handcrafted
certified organic and kosher is the way Ed Phillips and Sons,
the fifth-generation of family distillers hailing from, of
all places, Phillips, Minnesota, distill their corn vodka
out there on the prairies.
don't just take their word for it; they have been certified
organic by the USDA and kosher by the Orthodox Union. Not
only are they all that but they are also green and clean.
Any biomass waste is processed and either used to run the
stills or as feed on the farms from which the corn originated.
Hell, even the glass in the bottles is recycled and packed
in cardboard from sustainable wood pulp. All of this makes
me want to go shred some paper and donate it to them. Actually
I'm lying; all of this makes me want to go ahead and taste
their vodka, so let's give it a try and see if it's tasty
as well as clean and green.
Organic Vodka comes packaged in a clean
and clear bottle with an antique flavored label of pale yellow
and pale blue. The nose starts with a soft, warm, creamy aroma
with almost no alcohol traces followed by a hint of green
palate follows in kind with warm notes, a touch of pepper
but really not that much and pretty much stays clean and refreshing,
which is something I have never experienced with a vodka before.
The finish is really smooth and also delightfully warm and
clean. This is one vodka that finally comes the closest to
the definition of vodka that states it's a spirit with no
color, no taste, and no aroma. I've tasted a lot of different
vodkas in my time, and this one has to have the cleanest taste
I have ever experienced. Hands down, its taste totally beats
vodkas costing two and three times as much. I have recently
been looking for a vodka that didn't require a chaser of some
kind after downing a straight shot and I do believe I have
finally found it. This Prairie Vodka has found a home with
me; if you can find it, buy it - you won't regret it!
just can't believe that a vodka this tasty and this pure and
organic can be had at this low price point. Prairie
Vodka sells for around $24.00 per 750ml. bottle and
weighs in at 40% ABV.
