Prairie Organic Vodka

This new product is from Ed Phillips and Sons, the same Minnesota distiller that produces Phillips and UV brand vodkas as well as a large portfolio of whiskies, schnapps and cordials.

• Prairie Organic Vodka

Vodka is, by definition, a colorless, odorless and tasteless neutral grain spirit. This new vodka is, by definition, colorless, but it has a faintly fruity nose and is anything but tasteless.

Mixed in with the hearty warmth of the initial burst on the tongue are hints of melon, pear and apple. There is a definite creaminess to the texture throughout the tasting process which, coupled with the flavor notes, gives one the impression of drinking a cocktail rather than straight vodka.

Prairie is certified organic by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and is distilled four to five times from No. 2 yellow corn.

Retails for about $24 for the 750ml bottle.
