PRINCETON, Minn., Feb. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- As the demand for flavored spirits with all-natural, organic flavors continues to grow, Prairie Organic Spirits, the #1 USDA Certified Organic spirits brand, is expanding its portfolio of farm-crafted botanicals with the launch of its first-ever flavored gin, Prairie Organic Cucumber, Mint & Lime Flavored Gin. The United States is seeing a "ginassaince" with more gin drinkers now than ever before – in fact, the popularity of gin continues to increase year-over-year, with combination flavored gins among the fastest growing segments with almost a 200 percent increase in sales in 2020 alone*. Like all of Prairie Organic's spirits, each bottle of Prairie Organic Cucumber, Mint & Lime Flavored Gin is made with organic corn that's grown on family-owned organic Midwest farms and includes hints of all natural flavors. Each bottle is smooth from the ground up, making for an excellent sustainable sipper that's made right here in the United States.
Prairie Organic Cucumber, Mint & Lime Flavored Gin is made with all-natural USDA organic ingredients and flavors, is free of chemicals, pesticides, and gluten, and each bottle is 90 proof. Infused with all natural flavors, each bottle boasts hints of sweet citrus and cool, refreshing mint with an exceptionally smooth finish and crisp aroma of cucumber and juniper. This new flavored gin was created with sustainability in mind – the USDA found more than 35 pesticide residues in conventionally farmed common cucumbers, which can be harmful when ingested. Prairie Organic Cucumber, Mint & Lime Flavored Gin contains only organic ingredients so consumers can feel good about what they're consuming.
"We're continuing to see an increase in consumer demand for combination flavored gins so we looked to create an exceptional gin that was infused with refreshing all-natural and organic flavors that we know the Prairie Organic consumer would love," said Meghan Murray, VP of Marketing at Phillips Distilling Company. "All of the ingredients used are organically grown on United States soil so consumers know what's in their glass and the flavor profiles make for the perfect pairing for any cocktail – a truly sustainable experience in a glass that tastes great and is the perfect addition to our portfolio of spirits."
Simply combine the Cucumber, Mint & Lime Flavored Gin with soda water and ice to fully experience the refreshing flavor profiles and botanicals within each bottle or take your mixology skills up a notch by creating a delicious cocktail right at home, like with this tasty recipe below:
Cucumber Mint Gimlet
- 2 ounces Prairie Organic Cucumber, Mint & Lime Flavored Gin
- .75 ounces lime juice
- .75 ounces simple syrup
- Cucumber, for garnish
Fill cocktail shaker with ice and add Prairie Organic Cucumber, Mint & Lime Flavored Gin, lime juice and simple syrup, and stir. Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with fresh cucumber.
The launch of Prairie Organic Cucumber, Mint & Lime Flavored Gin comes on the heels of the organic spirit brand's three botanical vodka expressions that were launched just last year – Prairie Organic Sustainable Seasons. From tart grapefruit to crisp apple and even sweet, refreshing watermelon, the inspiration for each flavor combination – Grapefruit, Hibiscus & Chamomile; Watermelon, Cucumber & Lime; and Apple, Pear & Ginger – was carefully selected based on the sustainable ingredients available.
Prairie Organic Cucumber, Mint & Lime Flavored Gin will be available nationwide and has an SRP of $34.99 per 750 mL bottle. For more information, visit www.prairieorganicspirits.com.
