 Organic Vodka and Organic Gin

Trader Joe’s The Art of the Still Organic Vodka and The Art of the Still Organic Gin is an artistic endeavor that begins three whole years in advance of distillation. It takes three seasons for the soil to cleanse itself from impurities and rejuvenate its nutrient base. Once the Minnesotan farmers plant the corn, they rely solely on birds and bats to control pests, and natural prairie fires to eliminate weeds. This inventive approach puts the “organic” in our Organic Vodka and Gin. The artists (aka distillers) use a batch system with a pot and 25-foot-high copper column, distilling “to taste,” rather than by some prescribed formula. The yield is an aesthetically pleasing, clean Organic Vodka that’s creamy on the palate, with hints of melon and pear and a smooth finish. Our Organic Gin is a refreshingly dry, herbal spirit with flavors of juniper and sage, and a delicate finish. The whole process ends with a sustainable flourish, as the distillery converts the leftover corncobs into biofuel, and sends unused grains to local farmers for use in animal feed. We’re selling each 750ml bottle of either The Art of the Still Organic Vodka, or Organic Gin for $13.99*, every day!
