Prairie Vodka

Prairie Organic Vodka hails from Minnesota and is made by the Phillips Distilling Company – a family of 5th generation spirit makers and a co-op of over 900 farmers who share ownership of the brand. Phillips & Co was one of the first worker profit-sharing plans in the country dating back to 1944.

Prairie Vodka uses organic #2 yellow corn and all the left over corncobs are turned innto bio gas for powering the stills with left over grains being returned to the farmers for livestock feed.
Prairie describes their vodka as “beautifully smooth. With hints of melon and pear on the nose, creaminess on the palette, and a bright smooth finish.”

The packaging is unusual with samples being sent out nestled in corn and straw to protect the bottles. The imagery and branding on their website is innovative as well - they won a gold medal at the Los Angeles wine and Spirit Awards alongside Best Overall Design and Best Package of Show.
