Looking for a spirit that matches your healthy lifestyle? E11EVEN VODKA is here for you!
There are a lot of different spirits out there, but not all are a good fit for a healthy lifestyle. When creating E11even Vodka, CEO & Chairwomen Nikki Simkins put a lot of thought into how to create a spirit that fit the lifestyle of the guests at iconic nightclub, E11even Miami.
“One night, after drinking too much tequila, I woke up with a horrible hangover,” Simkins said, sharing the story of why she made a vodka over another spirit. “I began researching how to remedy it and came across tons of articles that spoke about congeners. Congeners are toxins – literal chemicals like acetone & acetaldehyde – found in alcohol after the fermentation process and cause hangovers. Out of all the alcohol types, I learned that tequila has the highest congeners levels, and that Vodka has the lowest (congeners levels), and it’s the cleanest! I have always been very into health & wellness, and I’m very conscious about what I put into my body – so, from that day forward, I became a Vodka drinker.”
That health-forward thinking resulted in E11even Vodka, a spirit distilled six times from 100% Florida grown, organic, Non-GMO corn. The vodka is also all natural, gluten free, with no carbs, no sugar, and is vegan, keto-friendly and only 64 calories per fluid ounce. Sourced, distilled, and bottled entirely in Miami, the high-quality vodka is handcrafted in copper stills before being refined using a proprietary seven-step filtration system.
Currently, the line is only available in Florida, but is available for shipping nationwide. Pick up a bottle the next time you’re ready to mix yourself a drink!
