Black Cow Launches in California

Black Cow Pure Milk Vodka, as part of its global expansion, announces its first US market, California, in partnership with Wine Warehouse, launching in May 2016. Wine Warehouse is the third largest distributor in California and will be Black Cow Vodka’s exclusive distribution partner for California for both on and off premise, with roll outs across the US planned for 2017.

Black Cow will appear at Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans this year with Paul Archard, one of the two founders of Black Cow, on the panel for the seminar ‘Vodka is Dead, Long Live Vodka’ with Claire Warner (Belvedere), Joe McCanta (Grey Goose) and Jared Brown (Sipsmith).

Black Cow is the world’s first pure milk vodka, made in Dorset, England, from the milk of grass grazed cows. It is a super premium vodka, distilled from the whey of milk and treated to a secret blending process created by dairy farmer Jason Barber. His inspiration came from a desire to diversify the produce from his 250 strong dairy herd and his personal interest in vodka.

Black Cow was launched by Jason and Creative, Paul Archard in 2012. Wine Warehouse is a multi-generational, family owned and operated, wholesale distributor of fine wine, beer and spirits for California, established in 1973.

Black Cow has won several awards including a Gold Medal from the the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition and has a clean, smooth taste perfect for sipping chilled or mixing in cocktails such as the Dirty Cow Martini or the Dorset Donkey. Black Cow Vintage Cheddar, made from the curds of the milk used to make Black Cow Vodka, is also available currently in the UK.
