Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 03, 2015 – The O’Shevlin Importing Company (O’Shevlin) today announces the launch of Bonn Óir (pronounced bän ôr) Gold Medal Vodka, the first Irish-American vodka. Bonn Óir will hit U.S. stores and restaurants this month. Bonn Óir Vodka is born of an Irish family recipe handed down through three generations of the O’Shevlin’s of County Armagh, Ireland. Bonn Óir Gold Medal Vodka utilizes a groundbreaking, yet still handcrafted, distillation process resulting in one of the most pristine, ultra-premium, super-smooth vodkas available today.
Bonn Óir is leveraging innovation to meet the preferences and rising standards of premium vodka drinkers everywhere. By using only the top-grain of soft white Irish wheat (from which fine artisan breads are made), Bonn Óir delivers an ultra-smooth and clean finish unlike other “premium” vodkas. Yet due to the unique distillation process, Bonn Óir remains gluten free. The O’Shevlin family’s secret and proprietary method, including continuous-column distillation and unique filtration technology, is redefining the expectation of quality within the spirits industry.
Consumers will immediately notice that the nose of Bonn Óir does not produce the alcohol impact one may receive from other brands, nor does it “sit on the pallet” once partaken. The result is a warm and smooth drinking experience unlike any other vodka.
“Vodka connoisseurs —whether Irish, or wishing they were Irish—will love this new standard set by Bonn Óir. Not just with the vodka itself, but in the heritage, the pedigree and the passion—the Spirit of the Irish—discovered within each bottle,” said Dan O’Shevlin, creator of Bonn Óir and grandson of Philip Joseph O’Shevlin II, the originator of the recipe.
Bonn Óir Gold Medal Vodka is available in one liter, 750ml and 50ml bottle sizes with a suggested retail price of $34.99 for a 750ml bottle.
The Bonn Óir family of products includes “Bonn Óir Gold Medal Vodka,” Bonn Óir Lite,” and “Irish Fire.” Bonn Óir Lite shares the same passion for quality as the original Bonn Óir Vodka, with only 40 calories per serving. “Irish Fire” is a vodka-based spirit whereby each handcrafted batch is infused with real cinnamon sticks, and then allowed to rest for weeks in toasted oak barrels, ensuring a unique, oaky finish. Finally, we slowly add natural agave nectar resulting in a boldly flavored, deep red spirit with delicious notes of caramel.

About O’Shevlin Importing Company
In the fall of 1916, a young man, Philip Joseph O’Shevlin II, risked it all to come to America, leaving his family and his beloved Ireland behind him. Armed only with his faith, a dogged determination, and a closely held family recipe, his dream was to begin a new life in the United States by creating his own special brand of Irish vodka, and the purest in the world.
His grandson, Dan O’Shevlin, has picked up the torch for the family business by incorporating a state-of-the-art production process with distilled spirits artisans, maintaining the handcrafted nature of the original O’Shevlin recipe. In this manner, O’Shevlin Importing has become one of the most innovative distilled spirits companies in the market today.
