OILERSNATION TEAMS UP WITH HANSEN DISTILLERY TO CREATE NATION VODKA
1,000 Limited Edition Bottles Hits Shelves Starting December 2
December 2, 2017 (Edmonton, Alberta) – OILERSNATION, the number one fan site for everything Edmonton Oilers, has partnered with local craft distillery, Hansen Distillery, to launch their limited edition Nation Vodka just in time to celebrate their 10th anniversary.
Following the popularity of Nation Beer, first released by Oilersnation in partnership with Polar Park Brewing in 2016, Oilersnation is expanding their line of products to include a locally produced craft spirit to share with hockey enthusiasts looking to add to new Oilersnation consumables to their collection.
“Some of the best vodka around is made right here in Edmonton by Hansen Distillery, and we know our Oilersnation community is going to love having a collectable vodka bottle to either consume or to add to their collection,” said Adam Mandryk, Director of New Business, Oilersnation and Nation Network. “It’s really thrilling to team up with a local Edmonton producer to create something all Edmonton fans can share and celebrate over.”
Hansen Distillery is known for producing an award-winning lineup of spirits, including a Barn Owl Gold Vodka. They hand crafted a custom Nation Vodka recipe, which is 30 times distilled and triple filtered. Made with a triticale grain sourced from an Alberta farm, Nation Vodka is produced by Kris Sustrik, Master Distiller at Hansen Distillery.
Sustrik, one of the Edmonton Oilers’ biggest fans, is especially excited about the partnership with Oilersnation.
“This is a dream come true for me to be able to produce a bottle that contains the iconic blue and orange on it celebrating a team I grew up watching,” says Sustrik. “To be able to produce this collectible Nation Vodka for other fans in Edmonton and beyond is such an honour and a milestone for our business. We share this with Edmonton and raise our glass to cheers all the fans and our favourite hockey team.”
Hansen Distillery produced 1,000 bottles of limited edition Nation Vodka, which is available for sale directly at Hansen Distillery in Edmonton, or online at www.hansendistillery.com/NationVodka starting December 2, 2017.
