Review: Hanson of Sonoma Organic Cucumber Vodka

Review: Prairie Organic Cucumber Vodka

Prairie Organic Cucumber Vodka was released in 2013.  It is made from organic #2 yellow corn grown by a co-op of 900 farmers in Central Minnesota.  After harvest the corn is brought to a farmer owned co-op where it is ground up and put into a mash where it ferments.  The mash is then delivered to the Prairie Distillery and distilled in a copper still.  The vodka is distilled in small batches to taste rather than a set number of times.  Water, sugar, natural flavor and salt are blended with the vodka base to create Prairie Organic Cucumber Vodka.

Review: Western Son South Plains Cucumber Vodka

Western Son South Plains Cucumber Vodka is one of seven handcrafted flavor infused vodkas made at the Western Son Distillery in Pilot Point Texas.  This is my 12th cucumber flavored vodka review, and I know of several more I have not yet reviewed.  The cucumber originates from India, but now grows on most continents.  China currently produces 76% of the worlds total.  A cucumber with the peel is 95% water.  South Plains Cucumber is made from their Texas Vodka base made from yellow corn and water filtered through reverse osmosis.  The vodka is distilled ten times through a 20 foot column still and quadruple filtered.  Natural cucumber essence is infused before bottling at 60 proof.

Review: Three Olives Cucumber Lime Vodka

Three Olives Cucumber Lime Vodka was just released.  Three Olives Fresh Watermelon Vodka was also launched.  Cucumber is a surprisingly popular vodka with over a dozen cucumber flavored vodka’s already on the market.  Lime is clearly cucumbers favorite dance partner as Three Olives is the forth cucumber lime flavored vodka.  At one time Three Olives made over 30 flavored vodka’s.  A lot of these flavors can still be found at major liquor stores.  It is unclear as to how many of these flavors are still made, but the recently updated Three Olives website only shows 12 varieties.    Read more »


Review: Rain Cucumber Vodka

rain-cucumber-vodka-copyRain Cucumber Vodka is made from corn at the Buffalo Trace Distiller in Frankfort Kentucky.  After seven distinct distillations and a polishing stage that adds limestone water, natural flavors are infused before bottling at 60 proof.  Rain Vodka was one of the first organic vodkas, and at one time they offered an Organics line of flavored vodkas, which included Cucumber-Lime, Red Grape Hibiscus, Lavender Lemonade, and Honey Mango flavors.  These have been replaced by a lineup that includes only two flavors, Cucumber and Mango.  Gone from the bottles label is the word Organic.  This leads me to believe these vodkas are no longer produced with organic corn.

Review: Svedka Cucumber Lime Vodka

Svedka Cucumber Lime - CopySvedka Cucumber Lime Vodka was just released.  It is one of 13 Svedka flavors currently available.  Svedka is the number one imported vodka in the US.  While cucumber may not be a flavor one thinks of when compiling a list of vodka flavors, this is the eighth cucumber flavored vodka I’ve reviewed, and there are probably another eight I haven’t reviewed yet.  Each 750ml bottle of Svedka is made with 4 pounds of Swedish winter wheat.  The vodka is distilled 5 times in a continuous distillation process.  At the final stage the vodka is run through high performance purification columns five separate times to remove impurities.  Natural flavors are then infused before bottling in Bardstown Kentucky.
