Most students don’t have the money to afford $15 dollar vodkas much less $35 dollar organic vodkas. Towson student, Katie Barrett is a bartender at Luckies at Power Plant Live and she sells Tru Vodka cocktails.
“Since we get the bottles of vodka for less money because we buy in bulk, we sell call drinks and top shelf drinks for about $7-$10. So if they are interested in trying out something new, they don’t need to buy an entire bottle,” Barrett said.
Barrett said that there was a big Tru Vodka promotion at Luckie’s and the promo girls were giving out free samples. The cocktails were screwdrivers which are Tru Vodka and orange juice. They were put in shot glasses and given to customers free of charge.
“Organic vodka is a new thing so people are unsure of how it’s going to taste. The promotion was a great turn out because it turned out that the customers were giving back great feedback. It tastes just like vodka, I’d say the only difference is that it may taste a little stronger than the average vodka,” Barrett said.
The promo girls were giving out t-shirts and bead necklaces that had Tru Vodka’s name on it. They were trying to put their name out there so that people will start to recognize Tru Vodka as an everyday top shelf vodka.
“I’d warn students to try to not drink Tru Vodka too fast. Since you’re mixing the vodka with juice, it can sneak up on you and you can become very drunk very quickly,” Barrett said.
It’s safe to say that Tru Vodka has gotten approval from the public and that organic vodka may become the new Grey Goose. It’s definitely a bang for your buck.
