Thinking of Irish-American’s may not see many people think initially of the development of vodka, but the O’Shevlin family are bringing their own Irish-American vodka brand to the bars and stores of the US. A three generation old recipe is used to produce the Bonn Óir Gold Medal vodka that is available with a 40 percent alcohol level and a crisp flavor infused with soft white wheat and glacial waters. The Spirit Business explains the launch of the brand comes after the grandson of Bonn Óir recipe creator Philip Joseph O’Shevlin II with the help of entrepreneur Marc Sparks have worked to bring this traditionally Irish recipe to the people of the US.
Marc Sparks and Timber Creek Capital are the financial backers of this Irish-American vodka startup, which sees the investment company continue its tradition of backing new companies and individual entrepreneurs. The Bonn Óir brand will launch with three recipes initially available for those who want to explore the flavors of Irish-American vodka. Alongside the Gold Medal traditional vodka recipe a Lite version will also be offered that has just 40 calories a serving. Finally, the brand is looking to add a little spice to the vodka market with the Irish Fire recipe that adds cinnamon to the recipe for a unique flavor. Those who want to mark their Irish heritage with a traditional vodka recipe or those who just love vodka are being targeted as potential customers of this new vodka brand.
