Minneapolis (PRWEB) – Launched July 2017, Drake’s Organic Spirits is already redefining quality standards in the organic spirits industry as the recipient of gold medals for its vodka and white rum, both of which are organic, grain free, gluten-free and non-GMO.
The 2017 Global Spirit Awards presented Drake’s Organic White Rum with the only Double Gold medal awarded to a rum in the competition, along with the title of Best Rum (White). Its counterpart, Drake’s Organic Vodka, won a Gold medal from the 2017 San Diego Spirits Festival International Spirits Competition.
Early awards like these stem from the Minnesota company’s founders, Mark and Kristen Anderson, and their dedicated journey around the globe to source only the highest-quality organic, non-GMO ingredients to create a product that meets the highest possible consumer demands and expectations for quality in ingredients and taste.
Drake’s Organic Rum and Organic Vodka are handcrafted in the United States using alcohol that originates from the organic cane sugar fed from the purest water flowing down from the Andes Mountain tops to the fertile Cuaca Valley in South America. A 12-step distillation process creates a smooth, clean taste impossible to find in GRAIN-fermented spirits.
“Kristen and I both grew up on Midwestern farms knowing the importance of organic agricultural practices and were able to see a gap in the spirits industry. Not only did we want to provide a product that would meet the needs of people who support the organic movement and those with gluten allergies, but we wanted that product to taste exceptional. We wanted a product that was smooth– without the burn of grain alcohol. To do that we had to find the right ingredients, and we found them in South America,” said Mark Anderson, CEO and co-founder of Drake’s Organic Spirits.
Informing on the gap in the spirits industry for a line of premium organic spirits, a 2016 Technavio report notes that while consumers are attracted by ingredient quality, previous organic spirit labels have not emphasized taste in their products. The same report denotes organic alcohol as an emerging trend that is expected to propel the growth of the global organic drinks market through at least 2020.
With the expected growth of the organic spirits industry and increasing demand for high-quality taste and ingredients in organic/non-GMO products, the launch and immediate critical success of Drake’s Organic Spirits signals a welcoming answer to the previous absence of a premium organic spirits label.
“We are thrilled with the positive response the organic vodka and organic white rum are receiving right off the bat. It helps validate the care we’ve taken in sourcing ingredients for a line of premium organic spirits that consumers will actually enjoy drinking,” said Anderson.
