Prepare for the Holidays and Stock Your at Home Bar/Liquor Cabinet with Ogden’s Own: Five Wives Vodka - Available in Regular, Heavenly Vanilla and Sinful Cinnamon (Review)

It beginning to look a lot like Christmas...toy shelves in stores are becoming bare, and moms are starting to stress about holiday meal planning, welcoming the in-laws and family for the holidays, and everyone is just trying to get their holiday shopping lists completed and work projects done before they check out for a much needed holiday vacation.  Where do you fall in the midst of chaos of the holidays?  Hopefully you are done or almost done with your shopping so that you can enjoy the magical moments of the holidays -- minus the stress of moving those crazy elves each night. :-)  I am happy to say that I am finally done with my holiday comes the fun part (not!)...all that wrapping.  I am seriously thinking of grabbing gift bags as I just can't imagine finding time at night to do all the wrapping.  We will see...I say this each year, and then I am up all night, like most people, on Christmas Eve, wrapping gifts, bandaging paper cuts, and pulling the house apart to find more tape.  But, thankfully when I sit down to tackle wrapping, or just unwind after a long day of homeschooling, baking or just trying to get everything ready for the holidays, I will be able to treat myself with a glass of vodka from Fives Wives Vodka.

I was recently sent their three vodkas to try out - regular, heavenly vanilla and sinful cinnamon, and have to say they came at a great time. We just got over a nasty head cold that turned into sinus infections for everyone in our house (all right before and during the Thanksgiving break), and have some ups and down this fall with surgeries, a dog bite and recovery and therapy for my youngest daughter, and seeing friends deal with the effects of COVID.  Even though the year has seemed to go back faster than the previous year, many are still just looking for 2021 to wrap up and for a fresh start for 2022.  

Now, I am not a heavy drinker, but like the occasional glass of wine at dinner or in the evening while I am unwinding from the day.  And, on days that I need a little more to get me through, I like to pour a glass of vodka.  But, I can't just have any vodka as some are just too strong or over-powering if flavored, so I usually just stick with ones I know I will like.  It just stinks that those go-to vodka companies are no longer in business, or are sold am I to get through the final weeks of 2021?  Thankfully, I am happy to say that I have found a new favorite vodka and that is Ogden’s Own: Five Wives Vodka.  After sampling their three different varieties of vodka with my husband, we both agree that this vodka is like none we have enjoyed before. 

"Ogden’s Own: Five Wives Vodka is made from a blend of spring water sourced from the Wasatch mountains in Utah’s beautiful Ogden Canyon gathered just five gallons at a time and 100% distilled corn spirit. Five Wives is a smooth, handcrafted gluten-free vodka receiving industry acclaim including a Gold Medal in the Las Vegas Global Spirits Award and 92 points on International Review of Spirits. In addition to the award-winning regular vodka, Five Wives comes in two other flavors: Heavenly Vanilla and Sinful Cinnamon."


"Fives Wives Sinful is a flavored vodka from Utah. Ogden's Own Distillery prides itself in making flavors that don't overwhelm you with sugar-- and Sinful is no exception. Unlike other cinnamon products that give you that candy-cinnamon taste, Sinful is like a morning cinnamon roll with only 76 calories per ounce (that other popular cinnamon shot has 106!).

Sinful is 35% alcohol ABV - 70 proof. It's a great chilled shot or a fantastic mixer with ginger ale, orange juice, etc. Made from 100% corn and gluten-free."


"Five Wives Heavenly is a flavored vodka from Utah. Ogden's Own Distillery prides itself in making flavors that don't overwhelm you with sugar and Heavenly is no exception. 

Heavenly's rich, buttery vanilla flavor comes through without coating your tastebuds with sugar and this results in more vanilla and less calories! Heavenly is 35% alcohol ABV - 70 proof. It's fantastic as a mixer for the perfect vanilla coke or as a chilled shot. Made from 100% corn and gluten-free."


What sets this vodka apart from others is its clean crisp taste.  Their two flavored vodkas are not sugary like some other brands I have tried, and that was a sweet surprise to me, as I find I gravitate more towards the flavored vodkas, over the straight up vodka.  I was so happy that the folks at Five Wives Vodka sent along all three of their vodkas for my husband and I to sample and see which was our favorite.  My husband said he really enjoyed the sinful cinnamon which reminded him of the cinnamon hots candy, while I found myself really enjoying the heavenly vanilla, which had a nice buttery vanilla taste to it. I tried the heavenly vanilla vodka on its own the first time, and then last night mixed it with vanilla, was it so good!  This low calorie vanilla-flavored vodka really made my taste buds dance. I couldn't help but smile as I talked about these vodkas with my husband, as he agreed they were hands down his favorite brand, and would be our go-to vodka for now on.  

Even though I said I was done with my holiday shopping, I am thinking now that I should pick up some Five Wives Vodka to have on hand for family and friends who are coming to visit for the holidays, as well as those unexpected visitors who stop by.  And, for those vodka and mixed drink lovers in my life, I know they will be happy to receive a bottle of Five Wives Vodka...before realizing like we did, that they want to make the switch to this brand, as the flavors are fantastic and pleasantly pleasing to your taste buds of each of the three varieties available.

If you are a fan of vodka, or like to play mixologist/bartender at your home for the holidays or for dinner gatherings, I highly recommend you check out Five Wives Vodka, and pick up the regular, heavenly vanilla or sinful cinnamon to offer up to guests, or just enjoy yourself as a nightcap.  Once you sample Five Wives Vodka, you will see why it is award-winning and a favorite of my husband and I and so many others.  I can't wait to hear which of the three vodkas from Five Wives Vodka is your favorite. So, be sure to come back and share in the comments.
