Drink Local Vodka


From Gaper's Block:
DiVine Vodka Reception @ Brasserie Jo
Head to Brasserie Jo tonight from 5-8pm for an hors d'oeuvres reception sponsored by DiVine vodka, a Michigan-based distiller. Cost is $25 for food (which will be made with DiVine vodka) and cocktails; call 312-595-0800 to reserve your spot.

I like eating local. Sure, I want to reduce my food miles; I like keeping money in the (relatively) local economy, and I like the fact I can actually visit the factory. But mostly, I'm parochial about my food. I root for my team. Maybe not all local vodkas taste good. I know of three: DiVine, North Shore Distillery and Death's Door. I've only tried the first two. Needless to say, I like drinking local. Don't just believe me, see what Chicago Mag has to say (pdf). DiVine is made from grapes, and yes there is a grapiness to the vodka (in a good way).

I cannot make the event tomorrow. I will enjoy some DiVine vodka.
