MICHIGAN-MADE VODKA BRINGS HOME THE GOLD
Lansing, MI– It’s a big win for Michigan, as Michigrain Distillery brings home “the gold” for it’s pure Michigan potato vodka.
The Lansing-made vodka beat out hundreds of other entries from around the world and was recently awarded the MicroLiquor Spirit Awards, “2018 Gold Medal for Taste.”
This is a double win for Michigan made products as Michigrain Distillery uses left over starch from a Detroit-based snack chip company.
While potatoes have been used for centuries to make vodka, most vodkas on the market today are made from grain.
“Using potato as a base is what gives this particular vodka it’s smooth, award-winning taste,” said Michigrain President/CEO Scott Ellis.
Vice President and Distiller Mike Bird adds, “I enjoy producing this product made with 100% Michigan agriculture especially as Michigan crops rank among the best in the country.”
“We are beyond proud to earn this top honor. The experts now confirm that Michigrain Potato vodka is the smoothest around. We are proud to highlight a top notch Michigan made product on the international stage. ” Ellis said.
Michigrain potato vodka was also awarded a MicroLiquor Spirit Awards, “2018 Silver Medal for Package Design.”
Michigrain vodka can be found in more than 150 stores, bars and restaurants across the state.
The MicroLiquor Spirit Awards is a unique competition tailored exclusively to craft and emerging brands in the marketplace. Brands must sell less than 50,000 cases a year to be eligible for entry.
