Meet Mutiny Island Vodka

A Smoking Sensational Award-Winning Spirit!

by Ellen Fassler


In a recent trip to the Virgin Islands, it was brought to my attention to explore a spirit native to the islands, and it wasn’t rum!  My goal was to experience the #1 Vodka in World uniquely made from breadfruit and Caribbean rainwater, on the island of St. Croix and handcrafted by the Sion Farm Distillery.  Breadfruit comes from a flowering tree of the mulberry family that has diversely benefited the indigenous people of the pacific islands for over 3,500 years.  The vodka was conceived and perfected in “2017” the year of the hurricanes, and unleashes an unforgettable taste that is uniquely sleek, smooth and smoking exceptional.

The first encounter I had was at the Old Stone Farmhouse in St. Thomas, USVI, with Chef Justin Werle, who specializes in fine dining and smokehouse cuisine.  On the menu were several smoked and grilled entrees, and I decided to pair the Mutiny Island Smoked Hot Pepper Infused Vodka with a Classic 8oz Filet Oscar.   As I savored my first sip before my meal arrived, I was rapidly immersed into captivating journey, a completely new world of vodka never previously experienced.  The taste was if the spirit just being taken off the grill.  It made a significant statement in seconds that was exuberant.  It’s inspiration truly resonated with a recent re-read of “Mutiny on the Bounty”, and the British Royal vessels seeking to collect and transport breadfruit plants hundreds of years ago, now even more a timeless and compelling reflection.  Truly a Super spirit experience!

Additionally, breadfruit is a true Superfood with exceptional nutritional benefits.   Earlier this year Mutiny Island Vodka outshined 3,500 others in a blind tasting in San Francisco at the Worlds Spirits competition and won the gold metal amongst its asset class.  Breadfruit is gluten-free, high in protein, low in fat, loaded with omegas, bursting with antioxidants and overflowing with folate, fiber and phytonutrients.

Meeting Mutiny Island Vodka is a necessity for vodka lovers, and there are endless reasons to pay attention to this spirit as it delivers a truly exceptional unique experience.  This socially responsible product energizes communities socially and culturally and offers a chance to contribute to organizations like the Trees That Feed Foundation aiming to reliver hunger in several countries, environmental stability providing microclimates for lower living plants and boosting local economies presenting huge opportunities for economic impact just by drinking it.  Breadfruit vodka is clearly the breadwinner!
