Be Prepared for Fun at Cheese Festival!

JCO, aka Janice O was one of the many loyal fans having a ball at the 9th Annual Rogue Creamery Cheese Festival on 3.16.13.  She so eloquently stated: "O-N gin & vodka make Southern Oregon more prefect than it already is.  How lucky are we to have a world class product in our own back yard!"
Do Not miss the 10th annual Cheese fest next year!  It is such a fun crowd and loads of great cheese, wine, spirits, cupcakes, chocolate, and more.  Our lovely volunteers, Diane, April, Hannah, and Eileen made the day fly by!

Oregon Chocolate Festival March 1-3, 2013

Salisha, pre-eminent Mixologist at LARKS Restaurant at the Ashland Springs Hotel did her handy work and infused Organic Nation vodka with vanilla bean and concocted a tasty Martini also including Rogue's Chocolate Stout and Umpqua's Vanilla Ice Cream.  Besides being tasty, it was a fun time.  Diane got to get behind the bar at LARKS and tell a little bit about the story behind Cascade Peak Spirits and Organic Nation. You can check out the love story in an article featured in Artisan Spirits magazine "Love at first Sip".

ORGANIC NATION wins the Gold!

Cascade Peak Spirits Distillery, home of ORGANIC NATION has done it again and more!  both our certified organic vodka and gin won Gold medals at the third annual GOOD FOOD AWARDS competition for artisan food and beverage producers throughout the U.S.  This competition is the brain child of the famous Alice Waters of the internationally renowned Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, CA.  It honors crafters of chocolate, charcuterie, pickles, preserves, convections, cheese, coffee, beer and SPIRITS!
We are proud to be the top Gold Medal winners amongst the quality artisan producers that won this year.  In order to receive the Gold Medal distinction, you have to be certified organic, which of course, we are!
I was fortunate enough to meet Alice and get a hug, made my day! Along with being given the honor to receive the Spirits Category awards for the other nine distilleries.  I gave a 3.09 minute speech that validated and rewarded all of the Micro-Distilleries for crafting more palatable quality spirits.

OldField makes it to Ethiopia

Our good friend Eric Poole, went to Ethiopia at the end of February to help his doctor friend, Matt with this incredible project, Cure Blindness in Ethiopia and he took a bottle of OldField Rye Whiskey clear around the world!!
Go EP!  running with Haile Gebrselassie and solving world blindness!

O-N our way to New York

ORGANIC NATION gin and vodka will be available in New York in April with Athenee Distributors!  Athenee's mission is to support small producers, small vineyards, small businesses and create sustainability while doing so.  Their supportive mission really matched our Saving the Planet One Martini At A Time!
And we all know how those New Yorkers are:  Progressive, knowledgeable locavores who are demand quality and have disposable income.  The ultimate LOHAS consumer "Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability", who make purchasing decisions based on their values.
So ask for ORGANIC NATION if you live in NYC, visit or know someone who does.  Word of mouth & grass roots movement is very powerful!
