[image-1]What’s sweeter than standard Dixie Vodka? American made honey, of course.
Dixie has announced that it will be collaborating with Savannah Bee Company for a new flavor: Dixie Wildflower Honey Vodka. The special spirit will be made by infusing Dixie’s six times distilled (from non-GMO corn) vodka with Georgia wildflower honey. Slightly sweet with plenty of that good and strong clear liquor taste, the new flavor is perfect on its own or mixed up as a classic cocktail.
“As the leading homegrown vodka in the region, it’s a key part of our mission that we work with flavors and ingredients that are core to the southeast,” said founder of Dixie Vodka Matti Anttila in a press release. “We want to tell a story about where our ingredients are from and who our partners are. Beyond being a delicious, locally sourced ingredient, honey also tells a critical sustainability story for the region. Healthy bee populations are vital to our everyday lives and we hope we can do our part in working with Savannah Bee Company.”
And the bees knees of the whole collab? A portion of proceeds from Dixie Wildflower Honey Vodka will benefit the Bee Cause Project, an organization that provides youth with opportunities to “understand, engage, and learn from honey bees in order to connect with the natural environment.” To date the organization has provided 300 hives to schools in 50 states and four countries.
Ted Dennard, Founder of Savannah Bee Company and The Bee Cause Project said in ap press release, “It’s the perfect all-around honey. Infused with Dixie Vodka it also makes for one fantastic spirit.”
Dixie Wildflower Honey Vodka rolls out this month and will initially be available in leading retailers, bars, and restaurants throughout S.C., Ga, Fla., Tenn., and KY.
