Analysis

What makes Oma's Natural Cherry so delicious is the use of hand-picked cherries from an orchard near Traverse City, Michigan. These cherries are steeped for more than 20 days in craft Vodka created at the Premier Distillery located in Illinois north of Chicago. This unique flavored Vodka is made from an old family recipe handed down from Oma (German for grandmother). At the end of the day the magic is in the simplicity — use quality Vodka and the best cherries together to create a something that exceeds the sum of its parts.

How to Enjoy

The Oma's Natural Cherry can be sipped chilled but we love what it brings to cocktails both simple and complex. Add a dose to a Manhattan or Negroni for a secret punch.
