PRINCETON, Minn., Aug. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- With summer in full swing, Prairie Organic Spirits, the #1 USDA Certified Organic spirits brand, is expanding its portfolio of farm-crafted spirits with the launch of its first-ever vodka botanicals collection, Prairie Organic Sustainable Seasons. Packed with sustainably sourced ingredients that are USDA certified organic, each bottle bursts with uniquely flavorful combinations that makes it easy to create a delicious cocktail right at home – simply add soda water and ice.
Prairie Organic Sustainable Seasons are crafted with sustainability in mind, incorporating organic ingredients that are selected at their peak, allowing for unique flavor profiles within each expression. From tart grapefruit to crisp apple and even sweet, refreshing 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.
The new Prairie Organic Sustainable Seasons are available in three refreshing flavor combinations:
Grapefruit, Hibiscus & Chamomile – Infused with crisp and clean grapefruit and hibiscus flavors that are balanced by notes of earthy and floral chamomile, this natural flavor combination is not too sweet, not too sour, but tastes just right. Each bottle bursts with unique grapefruit flavor that encompasses the perfect amount of refreshing taste. And now is the first time this citrus fruit has been planted on U.S. soil in 10 years, making it more sustainable than ever.
Watermelon, Cucumber & Lime – Watermelon flavor is a sweet complement to crisp cucumber and zesty citrus notes of lime in this expression that is a truly one-of-a-kind, refreshing experience. The U.S. Department of Agriculture found more than 35 pesticide residues in conventionally-farmed common cucumbers, which can be harmful when ingested – luckily, Prairie Organic spirits contain only organic ingredients, so you can feel good about what you're drinking.
Apple, Pear & Ginger – An unexpected, but delicious trifecta, this botanical vodka radiates with a crisp apple flavor that is perfectly balanced with juicy pear and finished with the subtle spiciness of ginger. Both apples and pears found their way on Environmental Working Group's 2020 "Dirty Dozen List," which annually highlights fruits and vegetables that have the highest pesticide residues when not grown organically; Prairie Organic Spirits sources only high quality fruit and herb ingredients that are free from chemicals, pesticides and herbicides.
"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."
Simply serve Prairie Organic Sustainable Seasons with soda water over ice to enjoy the fruit-forward flavors or show off your mixology skills by using these vodkas to elevate any classic or altogether new cocktail creation, such as these tasty recipes that you can try right at home:
Muddle mint, simple syrup, and lime juice in a collins glass then add your ice. Pour in the Prairie Organic Sustainable Seasons Watermelon, Cucumber & Lime Flavored Vodka and top with soda water. Garnish with mint leaf and cucumber wheel slice.
Pour Prairie Organic Sustainable Seasons Apple, Pear & Ginger Flavored Vodka and lime juice into a mug. Add ice cubes and ginger beer. Stir to combine, then garnish with a lime wedge.
In addition to providing a great tasting product that consumers can trust, 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.
