Wild Roots Spirits of Portland, Oregon are producers of vodka made with all natural ingredients that embody the essence of the Northwest. Wild Spirits has announced the latest in its lineup of fruit based vodkas, Wild Roots Huckleberry Vodka made with real huckleberries.
Not Your Momma’s Huckleberry Jam
While the huckleberry is known as a flavor profile in jams and syrups, it is somewhat of a mysterious fruit. Huckleberries are related to over 70 different berries – some white, some red, and some blue. Blueberries are in the same family. Huckleberries grow best in rich, acidic volcanic soil, at higher elevations and mountain ranges.
“Commercial Huckleberry products are full of sugar, mostly because they are in pies, jams, syrups and ice cream,” said Chris Joseph. “With Wild Roots we stay true to the fruit. We don’t try to make a flavor; we let the fruit do that for us. We are taking nature’s recipe, but adding our vision to create a one of a kind spirit. The difference is we use real fruit.”
The company says Wild Roots Huckleberry Vodka has the juiciness of a blueberry, the tartness of a cranberry and the color of a raspberry. The vodka is 70 proof.
Huckleberry joins the lineup their other fresh fruit infused vodkas including Raspberry Vodka, Marionberry, Washington Apple and Cinnamon, Dark Sweet Cherry, NW Pear and NW Cranberry vodka.
