Ethical, sustainable, and tasty.

As the name might suggest, FAIR Ethical Wine & Spirits is focused on their concept of the “fair trade” acquisition of spirits and ingredients from around the world that they source “ethically and sustainably.” All of those ingredients are sent to the famous production house Maison Rene’ Laclie Spirits in the Cognac region of France where seven core spirits are produced and shipped world-wide, including Gin, Vodka, Rum, and a series of interesting specialty spirits made from exotic ingredients.
 
FAIR Quinoa Vodka is made from Bolivian quinoa seeds. Using quinoa is rather rare, but a few producers are using it in distilled spirits these days. One of the main things you will notice is that the quinoa brings a nutty, earthiness to the spirits which does add a unique spin on the whole thing. Plus it makes the spirit gluten-free. And since production is handled by generations of experience at Maison Laclie, the quality is exceptional and they have a half dozen awards to prove it — including two double-gold medals.

Smartass Corner: Quinoa is a native South American crop that’s really popular these days with people looking for gluten-free alternatives to wheat. It isn’t a grain — it’s a flowing plant. But the seeds act like a grain when processed and dried."

Gustin
Gustin,
This is not really quinoa vodka. Its vodka that has some quinoa in the mix. I was disappointed not to see that in the description. Basically a marketing scheme to sell vodka as "quinoa vodka" when its mostly regular grains. It was like any other grain vodka nothing special.
