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 : Uncle Peps
The Company Story:
Discover the first — the O.G. — Original Bloody Mary Mix. We always start with fresh, hand-picked vegetables, just like Uncle Pep did. This 100% fresh-pressed mix with hints of spice will 100% make you want more!
From the company:
“We are not a salt bomb, very little sodium in our mixes
We use fresh Roma tomatoes, no concentrated ingredients, every ingredient is fresh pressed or juiced as you will see on the label
Bc of this our shelf life is 6 months
Being you are from Wisconsin (I assume) it will be hard to compare us to a traditional Bloody Mary, we combine many other vegetables so you will taste the difference
Spicy version will hit your back palate with heat but not overwhelming
Hope you enjoy it!”
