PRIDE OF THE WAPSI ARRIVING EARLY

May 2, 2017

pride_of_wapsi_strawberry_product_imageSurprise!  Guess who’s back??  Pride of the Wapsi Strawberry Vodka is making an early arrival on May 7!  We are rolling it out early this year because we have a busy couple months ahead.
Knowing we make our strawberry vodka with real strawberries from Pride of the Wapsi, you might be wondering how we got strawberries so soon? Typically, people have been wanting to get their hands on the strawberry vodka earlier than we were able to get our hands on strawberries.  So last year, we got with Pride of the Wapsi as the season was coming to a close.  We took some of the berries that might not look the best, but still packed lots of delicious strawberry flavor.  We used those to make the vodka and saved it back for this year so we could release it earlier.  This gives us a chance to release the vodka when you want it and we aren’t robbing the patch of their prime berries.  So if you’re a fan of Pride of the Wapsi and are scared we will take all the strawberries, don’t worry!  We’ll wait until you’re done picking!
So how do we make it?  We take our ultra smooth River Pilot Vodka and re-distill it with hundreds of pounds of real strawberries from Pride of the Wapsi strawberry patch near Long Grove, Iowa.  The result is a full strawberry aroma and essence but without the sweetness of a liqueur.  It’s so good!  It will go fast again this year as we only have 1,500 bottles!
