SKU #1057857

From the producer: "FAIR.Vodka is both the first and only Quinoa-based vodka and the first spirit made with Fair Trade Certified ingredients. The Fair Trade Spirits Company works directly with communities of small independent farmers that transmit their land from generation to generation. Each farmer owns in average 1 hectare. Their crops are gathered within the cooperative and they are guaranteed a fair price for their work as FAIR respects the international Fair Trade standards. The final product is Fair Trade Certified, at origin by Fair Trade labelling organizations and in the United States by TransFair USA, here in our very own backyard in Oakland. FAIR's model of development is endorsed by the United Nations development programs." From the Beverage Tasting Institute: "93 points (Exceptional) Delicately fruity aromas are evocative of frosted raspberry danish and follow through on a silky smooth entry to a dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body with cream of wheat and whole milk notes. Finishes with a floral talc, peppery spice, and dried berry accented fade. A very nice, fruity, spicy vodka that will shine with a nice chill or in martinis." (09/2009)

I'm not a big fan of vodka. I mean, really, what's the point? Why drink something that is designed to taste like nothing? I don't get it. What I do get from this little gem is a great sense of something. Something that I don't usually find in vodka....flavor. Soft and creamy with a really nice grainy (dare I say) quinoa-y flavor.

I just had this up in San Francisco and wow, the only reason I'm not giving it a 5 rating is because it's a vodka (but I can't seem to remotely hate this one)! Has texture, an actual flavor, is smooth and creamy but not oily... I can't say enough good things about it. Really? A vodka? It's more like a white whiskey and I could sit around and drink it neat. weird! The fact that the company supports small farmers is just a bonus (I admit, I buy big brands too), but this stuff is tasty! They had a sample of the coffee liquor at the bar which they let me taste (insane), but not the goji, Berries aren't normally my flavor either, but hell, if it's as good as the other two, I'll definitely try it and will probably dig it too. I wish the K&L up here had it.
