“We brought home the gold!” exclaimed Todd Manley, co-founder of Mutiny Island Vodka, the world’s first vodka distilled from breadfruit.

Mutiny Island Vodka was awarded a gold medal for the vodka class in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition for 2022. The gold level medal recognizes “exceptional spirits that…set the standard for their categories.”

The San Francisco World Spirits Competition takes place annually and is one of the world’s most prestigious spirits competitions.

With more than 3,500 entries in the vodka class, Mutiny Island Vodka, handcrafted at Sion Farm Distillery on St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, from two pure ingredients, breadfruit and Caribbean rainwater, proved to be of top quality amongst established spirits industry experts.

In a blind taste test by more than 30 judges, Mutiny Island Vodka impressed with notes of island flora and a luxuriously silky smooth “mouth-feel.”

“Breadfruit, with its rich history and legacy, provided us with a type of vodka we knew would be true to the island,” said Todd Manley, founder. “Hand-crafted Mutiny Island Vodka retains the character of the island and the breadfruit from which it is distilled.”

Mutiny Island Vodka has made a commitment to sustainability and the environment with its relationship with the Trees That Feed Foundation. The foundation’s efforts focus on incentivizing the planting of breadfruit trees to feed people, create jobs and benefit the environment.

The vodka is now available in 14 states in the continental U.S. and 15 Caribbean islands; it is featured in American Airline lounges and by NRP Applebee’s. It is also available to order online. On St. Croix, one can also stop by Sion Farm Distillery, where personal tours of the distillery are available with food, Mutiny Island Vodka tastings and cocktails.

About Mutiny Island Vodka: Mutiny Island Vodka, the world’s first island-produced vodka, is distilled and bottled by Sion Farm Distillery on St. Croix. For more information, reach out to the Mutiny Island Vodka/Sion Farm Distillery team at 690-9322.
