Prairie Cucumber Vodka
Prairie // Minnesota, USA
A Minnesota operation, Prairie spirits buys corn from local farmers to use as the base in all of their spirits. The corn is grown organically and the farmers employ traditional methods to take of invasive weeds such as controlled brush fires as opposed to modern pesticides. The left over grains are used as animal feed for neighboring livestock. With the cucumber infusion natural cucumber flavors are added at the end of distillation.
Flavored VodkaDistilled from any agricultural product. It will be labeled with the (pre)dominant flavor(s) listed and can be artificially or naturally flavored.
"As one may imagine, the nose of this vodka shows intense notes of cucumber and very little else. The flavor profile almost seems like some sort of super cucumber because it is incredibly aromatic. The vodka’s normal grain tones are all but dominated by the green skinned vegetable on the palate and the finish shows a slight touch of vegetal sweetness. A bit too much of a good thing as no other flavors make it past the cuke."
