New Holland Spirits Launches New Vodka Brand and Michigan’s Official Drink of Summer

Release of Lake Life Vodka taps into Michigan’s iconic summer lake culture  


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., (May 21, 2019) – Distilled to be the perfect accompaniment to summers on the water, New Holland Spirits of Holland, Michigan, is introducing a new brand, Lake Life Vodka inspired by Michiganders’ connection to the inland and Great Lakes, where time stands still and moments are savored.

Lake Life Vodka is available at grocers and select independent retailers throughout the state at a suggested retail price of $19.99 per 750 milliliter bottle. Fans can also enjoy the new vodka at New Holland Brewing’s two West Michigan locations: Pub on 8th and The Knickerbocker.

“Lake Life stands on its own in the vodka category while keeping true to our craft roots,” said Brad Kamphuis, director of distillery operations at New Holland Brewing Co. “We’re proud to distill in Michigan and have bottled the feeling that arises on Friday afternoon when heading out for a weekend at the lake. We wanted to create a vodka for locals that truly goes hand in hand with beach and boat excursions.”

The new vodka features a smooth entry with subtle sweetness, followed by hints of spice, and finishes crisp, clean and quick. Lake Life Vodka will join New Holland’s existing selection of spirits consisting of gin, rum, whiskey, bourbon and canned cocktails.

In tandem with the release, New Holland is also releasing the official drink of summer, Lake Life Lemonade.
