Quinoa vodka? Why not?

Fair Vodka are proud to have 13 years of pioneering the Fair Trade movement in spirits, building bridges between Fair Trade farmers an french distillers. Proud to discover new cultures and promote them through their spirits and care for the planet and its people along the way. They are proud of their partnerships with the best chefs, bartenders, and retailers that has created new tastes to share with the world. 


Fair Vodka is the first vodka to be made from quinoa. The result of research by both French distillers and Bolivian farmers. Quinoa is a grain that has been farmed for over 5000 years by the Incas. It grows at over 13000 ft in elevation in the Andes mountains, in volcanic soils. Once the quinoa arrives in Cognac, it is brewed by a micro-brewer. The 5.5% quinoa mash is then distilled in a single column still together with an organic and non-gmo corn alcohol.

Fair Quinoa vodka is full and delicate in style with cereals and citrus fruit on the nose with a mineral finish. The palate is balanced between green and fruit notes with a hot and lasting finish and distinct almond taste.
