OUR/VODKA Opens OUR/NEW YORK: The First Distillery In Manhattan Since Prohibition

| June 13, 2018 | 0 Comments

Our/New York is a new, small batch, high-quality vodka from the first legal distillery to open in Manhattan since Prohibition. Our/New York is a subsidiary of Our/Vodka, a global family of local vodkas made in micro-distilleries in cities around the world, which was started in 2010 by a group of Swedish entrepreneurs and later funded by Pernod Ricard.

The brand invests in and builds micro-distilleries in select cities while local partners run the business of producing and selling the vodka.  The local entrepreneurs become a part of the family, investing their own time and effort in return for gaining access to Our/Vodka‘s expertise, long-term capital investment and share of profits. Our/New York will be operated by local skate wear entrepreneur and artist Dave Ortiz, founder of DQM (Dave’s Quality Meat).

Located at 151 West 26th Street in the heart of Manhattan between Sixth and Seventh avenues, the Our/New York micro-distillery will feature a public tasting room, bar, retail shop, gallery and event space. Visitors are welcome to stop by the distillery daily for drinks, tours and tastings starting Friday, May 25th 2018.

Our/Vodka has built micro-distilleries in Berlin, Detroit, London, Amsterdam, Los Angeles and New York, with each city giving Our/Vodka its local name and character. The vodka is partly distilled, blended in small batches, and hand-bottled onsite at the micro-distillery following the same global recipe, but with ingredients sourced as locally as possible without compromising on quality to give each city its own unique flavor profile. Our/New York is a corn-based super-premium vodka that is blended using New York City tap water for a vodka that is smooth, fresh and pure with a slight grain and fruity note.

Our/Vodka is the brainchild of Founder and CEO Åsa Caap and was developed in secret with her co-founders for two years before receiving funding from Pernod Ricard. Åsa Says: “Our/New York is an important and exciting chapter in the Our/Vodka story and Dave, a born and raised New Yorker, is the perfect partner to write that chapter.”
