While I was at the Walmart of alcohol down in Cincinnati one day, I came across a ton of different vodka brands, one being Prairie Organic Vodka. I had seen this vodka before, but never really thought about trying it. I don’t think it’s a very popular brand, but I did want to try the whole organic alcohol deal. I also read some reviews online (go figure) and they were alright for the most part.
I like the bottle, I don’t know why but it really stands out to me. It’s great to have a vodka that is organic for anyone who actually cares about their liquor being organic :P. I like the fact that this vodka has a cucumber flavor as well, which is very refreshing to me, especially mixing it with club soda!
Now, I am the type of drinker who likes shots of vodka straight up, chilled, with a chaser. Vodka that I typically go for is Ketel One, as it has no bitter flavor or after taste. Prairie Organic Vodka definitely has an after taste that I don’t like, but it isn’t as harsh as Absolute. Now, other people may like the flavor that comes with this drink, but overall it’s not something I would drink in a martini. It was even hard to drink mixed with juice, as the hard taste of this vodka was way overbearing and just didn’t work for me.
As I stated earlier, the main reason I wanted to try this vodka is because I loved the bottle and of course it was organic, but it was just a fail to me. A .75 liter of Prairie Vodka costs $20, which definitely wasn’t worth it in my opinion. I will stick to my Grey Goose and Ketel One. 😛
