FAIR Vodka is both the first and only Quinoa-based vodka and the first spirit made with Fair Trade Certified ingredients. The Fair Trade Spirits Company works directly with communities of small independent farmers that transmit their land from generation to generation. Each farmer owns in average 1 hectare. Their crops are gathered within the cooperative and they are guaranteed a fair price for their work as FAIR respects the international Fair Trade standards. The final product is Fair Trade Certified, at origin by Fair Trade labeling organizations and in the United States by TransFair USA, here in our very own backyard in Oakland. FAIR's model of development is endorsed by the United Nations development programs." From the Beverage Tasting Institute: "93 points (Exceptional) Delicately fruity aromas are evocative of frosted raspberry danish and follow through on a silky smooth entry to a dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body with cream of wheat and whole milk notes. Finishes with a floral talc, peppery spice, and dried berry accented fade. A very nice, fruity, spicy vodka that will shine with a nice chill or in martinis."
