Saxtons River Distillery, a Vermont-based producer of award-winning craft spirits and liqueurs, has expanded its Snowdrop collection with the introduction of Snowdrop Vodka. A tribute to three generations of family distillers, the new Snowdrop Vodka launches this month with a traditional craft vodka, with a citrus vodka and a botanical vodka expected in the first half of 2023. Half of the proceeds of Snowdrop Vodka will be donated to Blue/Yellow USA (Friends of Blue/Yellow Ukraine USA NFP, Inc. 501(c)(3) in support of those affected by the current war on the country.
Snowdrop Vodka joins the award-winning Snowdrop Gin, lauded for its exceptional taste. The gluten-free, corn fermented Snowdrop Vodka is six times distilled in small batches to yield a premium drinking experience. Enjoyed straight up or mixed in a cocktail, the finish is smooth and inviting.
Saxtons Distillery will also be giving back, as Christian Stromberg, founder of Saxtons Distillery, designates half of the proceeds from Snowdrop Vodka to Friends of Blue/Yellow Ukraine. His commitment to making a difference during the ongoing crisis goes back to Stromberg’s Lithuania heritage. Along with this support, both he and Kerry Stromberg Secrest (Honorary Consul for Lithuania in Vermont) have held and continue to hold fundraisers to support Blue/Yellow USA's work in Ukraine.
Stromberg says, “As my ancestors were forced to flee Lithuania and start over back in 1905, I understand what is at stake for today’s Ukrainian people. That is why it is so crucial for me to give back to charities like Friends of Blue/Yellow Ukraine that support those who are displaced and need help.”
Saxtons Snowdrop Vodka will be first available in New England for $26.99 for a 750ml bottle.
