Cathead Distillery launches pecan-flavored vodka

Cathead, Mississippi’s first legal distillery, has launched Cathead pecan-flavored vodka. This is the first fall offering from Cathead, in addition to their Cathead Vodka (distilled 6 times and charcoal filtered) and their spring/summer Honeysuckle-flavored vodka. Cathead Pecan hits the shelves throughout the South early this fall and is a distinctly southern-fashioned spirit made from all-natural ingredients.

Produced by Bottle Tree Beverage Company at their Gluckstadt, Miss. distillery, this 70 proof spirit is a highly unique southern vodka, made with Mississippi grown roasted pecans. The pecans come from Bass Pecan, a Mississippi based company, just down the road from Cathead Distillery. A very careful maceration, accompanied with a stainless steel aging process allows the roasted pecans to add a depth of flavors to this vodka. Plus, no artificial coloring or flavors are used in the making of this process.

“We use only Mississippi grown pecans in this vodka, and there is roughly one ounce of pecans in each bottle,” says Cathead’s Distiller Phillip Ladner. “The end result: a very smooth vodka showcasing the flavorful notes from the roasting process and the sweetness of the pecan.”

Cathead Pecan will be a seasonal vodka that is soon available in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida Panhandle, Virginia, Indiana and Colorado. For inquiries please email
