This vodka captures all the charm and refreshment of southern sweet tea, with a smooth finish that sets it apart. Whether you enjoy it straight, over ice, or mixed with lemonade or real sweet tea, it’s a taste of southern hospitality in a glass.

The blend of sweet tea and vodka is perfect for those hot South Carolina days, and it’s a drink that brings everyone together, embodying the spirit of southern charm and camaraderie.
