A new vodka, with a name that pokes fun at Utah's polygamous past, is now on the shelves at select Utah liquor stores.
Five Wives Vodka, created by Ogden's Own Distillery, recently released 60 cases of its new 80-proof spirit. The state has given it a limited release, placing it in only a few test stores. None of the Salt Lake City outlets carry it.
Five Wives is distilled from a 50/50 blend of wheat and corn, said owner Tim Smith. It is filtered multiple times through active carbon and then combined with spring water from Ogden Canyon before bottling. A 750 ml bottle cost $19.99.
