Before the launch of its annual Pączki Day Vodka on Friday, Feb. 3, Detroit City Distillery will add an additional limited-edition vodka distilled with fresh horseradish, called Hometown Horseradish. This unique vodka is perfect for making the ultimate Bloody Mary and is made from raw horseradish and 100% Michigan corn vodka.
“Every year when we release Pączki Day Vodka, we try to create an amazing experience for our fans and reward them with something new,” said Michael Forsyth, co-owner of Detroit City Distillery. “This year’s big surprise is Hometown Horseradish Vodka. We called it Hometown Horseradish because we always associate horseradish with special family dinners and with recipes passed down for generations. It reminds you of home and where you come from. In addition to having a solid kick, it might be the smoothest vodka we’ve ever made.”
Hometown Horseradish Vodka, along with ready-to-drink Bloody Marys, cocktails, limited edition merch and Pączki Day Vodka will also go on sale at 8 a.m. on Friday, February 3 at www.detroitcitydistillery.com and will be available for pick up at the Tasting Room at 2462 Riopelle Street in Eastern Market at 4 p.m. Bottles are $35 each.
