Ogdon’s Own Distillery’s Five Husbands Vodka Sports a Fabulously Queer Label
If you are going to sip on a cocktail to celebrate Pride this month, make sure you are mixing it with Ogdon’s Own Distillery’s Five Husbands Vodka. While this beautiful booze is made from spring waters in the breathtaking Utah mountains, it brings more than superior taste to your table. The Five Husbands Brand was launched in 2017 with the goal of adding flair to Utah’s Pride Festival, and it does not fall short of its goal. A bottle of this crystal clear liquor will serve as a conversation piece as well as the featured cocktail spirit at your next Pride Party.
Five Husbands Vodka is made from spring waters in Utah…yes. But not just any spring waters. Do you really think that LGBTQ folks would create anything without being at least a little extra? Hell no! The spring waters this vodka is made from comes from a spring hidden in a beautiful Ogden Canyon that is inaccessible by vehicle so the water is hiked out five gallons at a time. That’s some next-level husband work…
Five Husbands Vodka is a 100% distilled corn spirit that is gluten-free and ideal for those with celiac disease.
But how does it taste? Let’s just say, that my Locker Room Talk & Shots guests killed the bottle quick with nothing but rave reviews! So I give it 5 stars!
Five Husbands Pride
Ogden’s Own Distillery President Mark Fine says, “We have long been an active supporter of Utah’s diverse LGBTQ+ community…” he goes on to explain, “As a company, we personally support the LGBTQ+ community and aren’t just putting a generic rainbow-themed product out there.” And that they did not!
This year’s Five Husbands Vodka label features five local community members who represent the beautiful LGBTQIA spectrum of identities. They were selected by the Ogden’s Own team for their dedication to advancing LGBTQ+ equality and visibility.
Meet Ogden’s Own 2022 “Five Husbands”
The following are the awesome husbands, all plucked from the streets of Utah! You’re going to love them as much as I do. So without further Adieu.
This beautiful individual is a non-binary transmasculine human who has been terrified for most their life, being filled with rejection or pure disbelief that one could be possibly both feminine and masculine. “I have been involved in the (Queer) community primarily through work as a Burlesquer and Drag King which also allows me to raise awareness through performance art. I teach Drag King classes inspiring others to develop a new skill, but to also facilitate a band of brothers that would support each other building a community of authenticity and offering a variety of drag in every gendered and non-gendered expression,” states Madazon.
This husband recently moved to Salt Lake City from Kansas five years ago. Bryce is the co-founder of Stonewall Sports which offers a place for people to meet in a different environment. With over 1300 members Stonewall Sports SLC is an LGBTQ+ not-for-profit sports league that includes kickball, sand volleyball, dodgeball, and bowling. “This adult league brings back memories for many of not feeling included in sports growing up but now taking ownership and having fun. Many of the teams meet up outside of the league for dinners, movie nights, and just good old-fashioned fun,” states Bryce.
Matt Easton is a Utah native and seventh-generation Mormon who came out during his 2019 valedictorian speech at BYU. “My speech gathered a lot more attention than I initially thought it would and I ended up going on the Ellen Show, Ru Paul’s Talk Show, and Good Morning America to talk about my experience being gay at BYU. It has allowed me to springboard into the world of LBTQ+ activism, working on improving the treatment of queer people at BYU and the Mormon church,” states Matt. Currently attending Berkley and working on a PhD in political science, we are sure Matt will help change the world. “My first alcoholic experience was actually drinking Five Wives Vodka and cranberry!” Matt recalls.
Chef Bryan Woolley
Check Woolley is an American Celebrity Chef, TV personality and operatic singer appearing on Salt Lake City CBS affiliate with a daily 30-minute cooking segment. “If I could inspire and save just one person in knowing that being who they are is fine, then this is a success. I am passionate about my career as a chef and have made many friends allowing me to travel and speak with wonderful people with shared interests,” states Bryan. Chef Bryan Wooley is America’s longest consecutive running TV Chef of three decades, who continues offering recipes for success.
better known as “Hoe Shi Minh” is Salt Lake City’s only Vietnamese performer. Hoe Shi Minh is a constant performer hosting numerous LGBTQ+ shows inspiring others to enjoy life and be proud of who they are. “When I attend Asian-American functions I represent the queer community…and when I am involved with LGBTQ+ events I represent the Asian community. I am proud to be part of both,” states Ho Shi Minh. Studying musical theatre for many years is clearly shown in Hoe Shi Minh’s talents and ability to excite others around to enjoy fun.
