Prairie Organic Vodka: Made in Minnesota

Posted on

Prairie Organic Vodka is featured on l’etoile Magazine as a “Made in Minnesota” spirit, one of the few in the state. Anthony Enright interviewed Jim Aune,  Director of Research and Development at Phillips Distilling Company, on the making of Prairie Organic Vodka. Aune has been with the company for over 40 years, creating Prairie and most of the flavors in the Phillips portfolio.

During the Q & A interview, Enright asked Aune, “What do you think makes Prairie distinctly Minnesotan?” Aune said, “Since the finest vodkas are made from distilled grain and water, we chose a place rich in both. The land of 10,000 lakes is also the heartland of American corn, a grain that makes Prairie Organic Vodka so smooth. When it comes to vodka, it doesn’t get better than ‘Made in Minnesota.'”  For the full interview and a tasty cocktail recipe, read here.
