Maine vodka links potatoes, blueberries

Maine Distilleries, which just pulled in a double gold medal for its Cold River potato vodka at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, is partnering with Maine blueberry grower Wyman's for a new flavored vodka product.

According to the company, Cold River Blueberry Flavored Vodka has been produced in limited quantities and is being offered for sale at retailers and in restaurants this month to celebrate the annual wild blueberry harvest.

The company claims its new product is "the world's only gluten-free flavored vodka."

Bob Harkins, partner at Maine Distilleries, said in an announcement:

"Wild blueberries are so closely linked with the identity of Maine that it made our first flavored product not only an obvious choice, but a perfect one. The delicately balanced flavor of this fruit is the ultimate complement to our award-winning potato vodka."
