phillips distilling debuts prairie organic gin and prairie organic cucumber-flavored vodka
Phillips Distilling Company announces two new additions to its Prairie Organic portfolio of spirits, Prairie Organic Gin, a light and refreshing gin and Prairie Cucumber-Flavored Organic Vodka, a crisp, garden-fresh vodka with soft cucumber flavors.
“The purpose of our farmer owned distillery is to utilize sustainable production to handcraft superior organic spirits domestically and support Minnesota’s agricultural economy.”
Quickly earning industry appeal, Prairie Organic Gin won a gold medal at the 2013 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and a high score of 86 points at the 2013 Ultimate Spirits Challenge. Prairie Organic Gin is carefully handcrafted with a blend of coriander, angelica, lemon, cassia and juniper flavors. Herbal fragrances of mint and sage smooth the palette with a long, delicate finish.
Handcrafted from a blend of cucumber essential oils and Prairie Organic Vodka, Prairie Cucumber-Flavored Organic Vodka delivers an invigorating, clean finish with just the right hint of cucumber.
Prairie Organic spirits are the result of a unique partnership between Phillips and a co-op of over 900 Minnesota farmers, all stakeholders in the Prairie Organic brand. The distillery has earned Oregon Tilth organic certification, ensuring every step of the distillation process meets organic standards. All Prairie Organic spirits are handcrafted from certified organic #2 yellow corn raised by Minnesota farmers. Meticulously crafted, each batch is distilled in limited quantities to taste, not a prescribed number of times.
“The Prairie Organic brand symbolizes Phillips’ commitment to our Minnesota farm communities,” said Pedro Caceres, Phillips president and CEO. “The purpose of our farmer owned distillery is to utilize sustainable production to handcraft superior organic spirits domestically and support Minnesota’s agricultural economy.”
Climate, soil and moisture levels give each small batch its own unique character. All Prairie Organic spirits are certified organic by the USDA, ensuring genetically modified seeds, chemical fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides and hormones are never used.
Prairie Organic Gin, Prairie Cucumber-Flavored Organic Vodka and Prairie Organic Vodka are available at a suggested retail price of $19.99 for a 750mL bottle.
