Cathead Honeysuckle: It’s BACK!

cathead honeysuckleSpring is just around the corner, and before you know it, the intoxicating aroma of the honeysuckle vine will fill the air. But for those of us that just can’t wait that long for a taste of spring, we’ve got some really good news for you: Honeysuckle Season has arrived.

This week, Mississippi’s first modern distillery, Cathead Distillery, began delivery of this year’s batch of Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka to local restaurants, bars and liquor stores.

Cathead-HoneysuckleVodkaAbout one year ago, our love affair began when Cathead Distillery brought us the inaugural “Honeysuckle Season” as Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka made its debut at the Jackson Restaurant Week VIP Party. The VIP event featured a signature Cathead Honeysuckle cocktail that created quite a buzz at restaurants and bars around the city.

If you haven’t experienced Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka for yourself, you’ll be amazed how perfectly it captures the essence of our beloved Southern nectar. With a smooth, sweet flavor, adding mixers to Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka is optional even for the most casual cocktail drinker. Ever since last year’s sell-out of this amazing product, we’ve been longing for more. And now, our wait is OVER.

Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka is now available at many of your favorite local restaurants and bars, including Julep Restaurant & Bar, The Mermaid, Mint the Restaurant, Nick’s, Parlor Market, Table 100 and Underground 119, among others.

Cathead-Table100-inviteYou can even get a sample of the product at events at Parlor Market and Table 100 tomorrow night, Thursday, March 7. And on Friday evening, March 8, the Cathead crew will be hanging out and pouring samples at Underground 119 to the tunes of Jesse Robinson. Our friends at Kats Wine Cellar in Jackson and Colony Wine Market in Madison have also confirmed that they have Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka in stock as of this writing.

Insider Tip: Order a Honeysuckle Lemonade or Honeybubbles at your local bar or restaurant to kick spring off in style. Or… make it at home for yourself. Honeysuckle Lemonade is perfect for spring picnics and BBQs, and Honeybubbles are all the rage with wedding planners and brides this spring!

    I’ve been looking forward to trying this for some time. I really hate I missed their collaboration with Lazy Magnolia (the white dog whiskey).
