La Crosse Distillery-Field Notes
Whose corn-based vodka is just that, 100% Midwestern organic yellow dent corn. Besides the yeast and enzymes they use to break down the sugars in the corn, there’s nothing else used to make this spirit. It is double-distilled and filtered for an easy finish.

Wick’s Bloody Mary Mix
The Company Story:
We took our original Bloody Mary Mix recipes which we have shared with friends and family and enhanced it with superfoods. Turmeric, Black Pepper and Cayenne Pepper. These potent vasodilators create an exhilarating experience, and will reinvigorate you after a long Saturday evening. We then reduced the sodium and caloric content by 40%… we enhanced the flavors with every sensory stimulus in mind. Sweet, Salty, Sour, Bitter and our favorite Umami.Wicks Bloody Mary Website
What’s on the Outside?
A fairly standard 32oz glass bottle with understated label. What really stands out is the composition of this mix. I’ve never seen so many chewy particulates. Wow!
Onto the ingredients:
On its own Wicks starts with a slight tartness and moves to a savory umami bomb I likened to French onion soup. Solid bits of all manner of ingredients are left behind to chew and enjoy- if you like that sort of thing.
The Chaser: Pearl Street Brewery’s Pale Ale. Crisp, clean, and refreshing, this pale ale is a nice palette cleanser to pair with a complex bloody Mary mix.
Adding vodka seems to make the drink a bit more creamy and less chewy. If you don’t like chewy, add vodka.
Retail Cost: The website sells three bottles for $39.99
If you like a little chew, you don’t want a ton of spice, and umami is your jam- Buy it. I would.
