Share Article

Drakes Organic Vodka and Rum have recieved NGP verification.

" No Grain, No Gluten, No GMO's insure our spirits are 100% Gluten free and GMO free. When consumers read ‘non-GMO’ on a label, they also expect to see the Non-GMO Project butterfly alongside it"

A leading supplier of non-GMO ingredients, Captain Drake LLC has attained Non-GMO Project Verification for its organic cane alcohol, sold under the label Drake’s Organic Spirits.

As the only third-party non-GMO verification system in the US and given the highest ranking for meaningfulness from Consumer Reports in April 2017, the Non-GMO Project Verification Seal is the best way for consumers to know that the products they are buying are truly non-GMO.

“This achievement is one more thing that separates our organic spirits from our competition. No Grain, No Gluten, No GMO's insure our spirits are 100% gluten-free and GMO-free. When consumers read ‘non-GMO’ on a label, they also expect to see the Non-GMO Project butterfly alongside it. We’re proud that we can provide our customers further proof of the high quality of our organic white rum and organic vodka,” said Mark Anderson, CEO and founder of Drake’s Organic Spirits.

Launched in July 2017 in Colorado and Minnesota, Drake’s Organic Spirits has proven plenty already, receiving critical acclaim in the form of a Double Gold Medal and Award for Best Rum (White) from the 2017 Global Spirit Awards for its organic rum and followed up by a Gold Medal awarded to its organic vodka from the 2017 San Diego Spirits Festival International Spirits Competition.

Drake’s Organic Spirits is expanding rapidly, and its organic rum and organic vodka, which are also both grain-free and gluten-free, will soon be available for purchase from in-store retailers in California, New York and Florida.

Keeping in trend with consumer purchasing trends, Drake’s Organic Spirits is available for purchase nationwide through online retailer Total Beverage. Online alcohol sales growth is occurring at an exponential rate according to a late 2016 report from IBISWorld, which showed an 11.7% growth rate from 2011-2016, with an estimated 6.5% growth rate in 2016 alone [1].

“While it is very important that our customers believe in the high quality of our product, we also need to make sure it is easily accessible to new customers all over the country. Online alcohol retailers have made it easier to connect with customers in remote locations or who have limited access to organic, non-GMO products. Along with our achievement of NGP-verification, the launch of our online sales is another step in allowing our customers to both understand our product as well as purchase it,” said Anderson.
