The Ultimate Spirits challenge is the world's most prestigious and progressive global spirits and cocktail competition, with entries from 52 countries.
1 word: WOW!
The good news keeps coming!
I got a call earlier this week and found out that Dixie has been named the official vodka of the Augusta GreenJackets SRP Park in North Augusta, South Carolina. The Augusta GreenJackets are the Single A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants. This is awesome news. As most of you know, I am a huge sports fan.
I started working for Dixie Southern Vodka two years ago. I have always been in the liquor promotions business and when then opportunity came along to be on their promotions team, I said "HECK YEAH!" Looking back now, I don't even think I was asked...I think I was TOLD I was going to be on the team. Kenzy Cunningham, my boss and I have been a team for years and when she called me to tell me about the opportunity...I was in! Wherever Kenzy goes, I go. We are all about teamwork. Supporting an award winning product that is 100% made in America has been one of the easiest jobs I have ever had. The vodka is gluten free, non-GMO corn, 80-proof, $18.99 for a 750 ml bottle.
This is following the recent news that Dixie Black Pepper Vodka was voted the Top Flavored Vodka in the WORLD. It's a must-have staple for any Bloody Mary or oyster shooter in the South. They have created their Black Pepper Vodka by steeping Szechuan black peppercorns in their core Southern Vodka, while serrano peppers steep in a separate batch. After a week, they combine both batches to create a perfectly balanced spicy vodka. Dixie Black Pepper Vodka has won a slew of awards, including: 2018 Ultimate Spirits Competition Top Flavored Vodka, Great Value, Chairman’s Trophy, 2016 & 2017 Consumer Choice SIP Award, 2016 & 2017 Gold SIP Award. You must try it!
Yall know I am all about setting goals....my next goal: let's get Dixie in the Charlotte Knight's BB&T Ballpark! C'mon Knights.....yall support local beer. Time to step it up and support local spirits!
