Finally, for those looking for the perfect blend of buying local and a delicious vodka libation, Ogden’s Own Five Wives Vodka is generally listed and available at all Utah liquor stores.
The 80-proof vodka, which sells for $20 a bottle, is made with Utah spring water by Ogden’s Own Distillery, best known for its award-winning Underground. The vodka is smooth and the taste of spring water is readily apparent. Whether making a vodka martini or sipping it on the rocks, Five Wives is the perfect weekend companion.
“It’s great to have it going to all stores now,” said Tim Smith, president of the distillery, in a press release. “For 12 weeks we’ve been fielding questions from people asking where they could get Five Wives, and now we will be available statewide.”
Five Wives Vodka is column-distilled from a 50/50 blend of wheat and corn and filtered multiple times through active carbon. It is then blended with spring water from Ogden Canyon. At 40 percent alcohol by volume (80 proof), the vodka is a potent blend.
Ogden’s Own first produced Underground, America’s Herbal Spirit, that was designed to capture the feeling of the rowdy, early days of Ogden and is now available in 10 states. Five Wives Vodka is the next step in creating a portfolio of products that pay homage to the heritage of the American West. Interest in distribution to Wyoming, Idaho, Texas and Oregon are currently being explored.
“This is a high-quality product at an affordable price,” Smith said.
