Gold medal winning spirit will join Drake’s Spiked Ice on shelves of world’s second largest retailer
Minneapolis, Minnesota (October 23, 2019) – Drake’s Organic Spirits announced today that its gold medal-winning all-organic spiced rum is now available at Costco locations beginning in San Diego, California.
“Costco is not only one of the world’s largest retailers, it’s also beloved by devoted fans around the globe who appreciate the company’s low prices, quality products and commitment to customers and employees,” said Drake’s Founder and CEO Mark Anderson. “Costco is on the leading edge of the growing consumer demand for products made sustainably and without the addition of artificial colors and flavors. We’re proud that Costco has chosen to offer Drake’s Organic Spiced Rum to their members.”
Drake’s Organic Spirits is the first and only spirit line in the world to be certified USDA organic, non-GMO Project Verified, gluten-free, vegan and kosher. The five certifications ensure a cleaner drinking option that comes only from the highest quality organic ingredients. Drake’s continues to be among the most environmentally conscious brands in the spirits industry and deeply committed to using ingredients and processes that lead to a more sustainable planet.
Drake’s Organic Spiced Rum won Gold at the 2019 Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA) Convention. The highly-respected awards are widely considered among the most prestigious in the industry because judges are industry experts who blind taste-test each spirit. Previous awards for Drake’s Organic Spiced Rum include Gold at the Asia International Spirits Competition and Double Gold at the 2017 Global Spirits.
Costco continues to offer Drake’s Organic Spiked Iceä freeze-and-eat adult treats in select locations. The handheld ice pops feature 15% ABV and only 80 calories each. Spiked Ice comes in four flavors – Mango Rum Punch, Vodka Lemonade, Watermelon Martini and Classic Mojito – and are made with Drake’s award-winning all-organic ultra-premium vodka and white rum.
Proceeds from the sale of all Drake’s Organic Spirits products help fund Long Lake Animal Rescue, an animal rescue foundation that takes in animals in urgent need of a second chance at life.
