Wild Roots has launched a Cranberry Vodka using some of the best cranberries in the country. The spirits company is teaming up with Bandon-based Johnson Creek Farms on its cranberry infused vodka. Wild Roots Cranberry Vodka uses almost 2.5 pounds of very fresh Oregon grown cranberries. There is no sugar added.
Johnson Creek Farms is a local family-owned cranberry farm located in Bandon. The third generation farm was established in 1965 by Bob and Barbara Stolz and is currently owned and operated by their son Wayne, his wife Kim and their son Jeff.
“What we were looking for was a small family farm to work with that produced locally and in an all-natural setting,” said Chris Joseph, president of Wild Roots. “We are committed to supporting local farms and paying a fair price while seeking to help the Oregon farm community grow.”
Oregon is the No. 4 cranberry producing state in the country in the billion dollar cranberry industry, behind Wisconsin, Massachusetts and New Jersey.
Wild Roots Cranberry Vodka is infused with Northwest cranberries, known for their refreshing tart flavor.
“It really tastes like what the actual cranberry fresh off the farm tastes like, said Wayne Stolz owner of Johnson Creek Farms.
The Wild Roots Label features a map of Oregon created to scale. The map features select iconic locations like the Pacific Crest Trail, farms where Wild Roots gets its fruit for its infused vodka, the Wild Roots tasting room and other Oregon landmarks.
Founded in 2012 by Chris Joseph, Wild Roots Vodka produces all natural spirits that embody the true essence of the Northwest. Wild Roots starts with what the Northwest is best known for: rich soil, pure water and one-of-a-kind berries. In using the best possible ingredients, Wild Roots is able to create original, handcrafted vodka that bursts with fresh, natural flavors and aromas. Every bottle of Wild Roots contains over one pound of locally sourced berries, giving the vodka a unique color, smell, feel and homegrown taste.
