Ever wonder why Americans started making whiskey? Our friends over at Spodee Wine have a delightful dose of cocktail history.

We were recently introduced to the delightful Spodee Wine – a hooch that combines country wines & moonshine!  From the makers of Sailor Jerry’s Run and Hendricks Gin, the original Spodee is a red wine fortified with moonshine, with a chocolaty finish and is currently available Georgia!  The recently launched Spodee White is “Honey amber in color with a tropical aroma, a bouquet of toasted coconut, pineapple, amaretto and tropical fruits. It’s essentially summer in a bottle!”

Spodee White

Like the red Spodee, the new white variant is also 36 proof and harkens back to the Depression era hooch of the same name, that was a deceptively strong, sweet, easy-to drink beverage. Spodee White is a white wine that is fortified with moonshine and mixes easily into cocktails, just like a spirit! Spodee White is great served chilled or mixed into a citrusy cocktail or sangria, No matter how you drink it, Spodee is reinventing the way people enjoy wine.

“I pioneered high proof spirits when I introduced 92 proof Sailor Jerry Rum. Now I am pioneering high proof wines….or low proof spirits…depending on how you look at it.” says creator Steven Grasse. For more information, visit: www.spodeewine.com or click here to find a retailer near you, plus keep up with them on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
