Prairie’s single vintage organic corn is distilled to taste, not a prescribed number of times. That’s because climate, soil, and moisture levels give each small batch its own unique character. Preserving that character takes personal attention, giving their spirits an award-winning taste that can stand on its own. Three family farmers on the Minnesota prairie own the land and the quiet respect of all around them. Each family works in their field up to three times longer than conventional farmers, all to cultivate the nutrient-rich soil and organic corn that will become Prairie spirits.

We believe in taking the time to do things the right way — by hand.
Since the finest spirits are made from distilled grain and water, we have chosen a place rich in both. The state of 10,000 lakes is also the heartland of American corn, a grain that makes Prairie so smooth. When it comes to spirits, it doesn’t get better than “Made in Minnesota.” Once it leaves the distillery in Benson, Minnesota, Prairie is bottled in the town of Princeton by Ed Phillips and Sons—a fifth generation and family-operated distilled spirits company. After the harvest, the corn is brought to the farmer-owned distillery in Benson, Minnesota; a sustainable co-op that converts leftover corncobs into fuel and returns the leftover distillers grains to local farmers for use as feed. It’s a sustainable process for a community that takes pride in the work of their hands.
How To Make A Thanksgiving Vodka Infusion

Use the reserved vodka to top off the bottle before securing the cap. For the best flavor, store in a refrigerator or dark, cool space for three to four days. Then serve and enjoy.
