Why Does Central Standard
Door County Cherry Vodka Taste So Good?

It all starts with the source of the main ingredient, real Door County Cherries.

Tucked away in northeast Wisconsin, picturesque Door County refers to a 70-mile long region in Wisconsin, USA that contains 34 named islands and dozens of small cities, towns, and communities, each with its own distinct look and feel.

The entire region is located on a peninsula, with the exception of the islands.  It is one of the top vacation destinations in the Midwest.  Extend outside the beauty of the peninsula, you will find the hardworking people of Door County attending to their main agricultural crop, cherries.

This small but vibrant county in Wisconsin is responsible for 10% of all cherry production on the USA.

Door County’s geology and climate are ideally suited for cherry production.  Spring arrives late, which is delayed due to the presence of Green Bay and Lake Michigan, slowing down the budburst in cherries, which reduces the frost damage to fruit blossoms.  Also, the shallow, rocky soils in this part of the world do make some traditional farming activities difficult, but don’t impact cherry farming at all.

Fact: Cherries are amazing

Cherries are a good source of fiber, vitamins and minerals, including potassium, calcium vitamin A and folic acid. 

Additionally, according to Michigan State University research, it shows that cherries are a rich source of antioxidants which can help in the fight against cancers and heart disease.

How Door County Cherry Vodka is made

We take a small piece of this local treasure and use it as we distill our handcrafted vodka right here in Wisconsin.  Every batch of our award winning Door County Cherry Vodka is made with over 15lbs of real cherries and cherry juice, which we then finish it off with a kiss of raw Wisconsin Honey to form the perfect blend of tartness and sweetness to form this special and unique local flavor. 

Sure to be a hit at all of your family gatherings, special occasions or just a moment of relaxations, Door County Cherry Vodka mixes well with anything….but especially lemonade, ginger beer and lime juice for a Midwestern take on the classic mule, or even with a citrus soda for a “Dirty Shirley” or cola for a hard take on a fountain classic the cherry cola.

Sip, Savor and Repeat with this versatile spirit sure to make you a hit at your next gathering.
