Bloomington distillery Cardinal Spirits has released a Class of 2018 Vodka in honor of IU's graduating class.
The vodka is a limited edition bottling of Cardinal Spirits' signature vodka, which is fermented and distilled on-site from white grapes, said Erica Sagon, Cardinal Spirits marketing and content director in an email to the Indiana Daily Student.
"It lets IU grads take a little piece of Bloomington with them on their next adventure," Sagon said in an email.
The vodka, which costs $25 per bottle, is only sold at the distillery at 922 S. Morton St. Each bottle also comes with a free shot glass.
Cardinal Spirits' own recipe for Moscow mules calls for 1.5 ounces of Cardinal Spirits vodka, along with a half ounce of lime juice, ginger beer and a lime wedge, according to the Cardinal Spirits website.
"It’s not your average tasteless, odorless vodka," she said in an email. "It has character by design — a very light entry, a full rich body, and a bright floral finish."
