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.

Sagon said Cardinal Spirits vodka is gluten-free. She said the vodka is smooth enough to drink straight, but also goes well in cocktails such as Moscow mules.

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."
