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.

Company We Review Today: Southern Roots

Southern Roots Bloody Mary Mix Review
Southern Roots Bloody Mary Mix Review

The Company Story: this is one of those pandemic passions turned business. Would never have happened if the founder wasn’t forced to close down his restaurants. Until then, it was only a family treat.

“The late, great Bear Bryant once said, “There is a big difference in wanting to and willing to.” For a while, Southern Roots was a dream. It was an expected treat at family gatherings, parties, and tailgates for Alabama Crimson Tide Football games. After the first sip, so many people would tell me, “It really is the best. You should sell this stuff.” I wanted it to become more, but life was in the way and I was not willing.”
