Trader Joe's Now Has Its Own Vodka. Here's What You Need To Know

While tons of people are currently freaking out over Lady Gaga's new collaboration with Dom Pérignon, there's another alcoholic drink that was recently announced and slipped under the radar. Trader Joe's posted to the company website on March 29, 2021 that their beloved stores will now carry Trader Joe's own line of vodka. This exciting new development will ultimately have a lot to offer fans and shoppers of the store. Unfortunately, the new vodka will only be available at stores that already sell liquor or that can legally sell liquor in their state.

Trader Joe's Small Batch Vodka 10X Distilled is made with corn and is described as being "mellow, remarkably clean, crisp and smooth." Trader Joe's used limestone-filtered water that's located just 1,300 feet below the distillery. Between the high-quality water source and high number of distillations, you know this vodka is going to be smooth, if strong. It clocks in at 88 proof, and is incredibly easy on the wallet at just $9.99 per 750 milliliter bottle. Just think of how well this could work for batch cocktails, frozen drinks this summer, and so much more.

Trader Joe's shoppers are really excited

Naturally, Trader Joe's fans are really ready for the new vodka. Trader Joe's actually announced it on the company's official Instagram on March 30, 2021. Within a day, the post had gathered more than 9,000 likes. According to the comments, it would seem the new vodka is already out and on shelves too. So no need to wait for the launch or anything.

One lucky Trader Joe's shopper, who already picked up a bottle, said, "I just started making vanilla extract with this vodka!" Another faction of commenters broke out with one comment saying, "would be a great reason to bring back jalapeño limeade!" Someone else responded, "where'd that jalapeño limeade at." Someone else suggested using the vodka in drinks like, "paloma, vodka tonic, screwdriver, juice of a few flowers." The options are really endless.

There were many disappointed shoppers who know their stores don't sell liquor too. Hopefully they can get their hands on some at some point, though.
