‘Five Wives Vodka’ causes uproar in Idaho
Idaho liquor regulators say a Utah liquor named “Five Wives Vodka” is in bad taste and they won’t stock bottles or take special orders at state-owned stores.
The vodka is from a distillery in Utah, where the Mormon church is based. Idaho regulators told a distributor for Ogden’s Own Distillery that the brand’s concept is offensive to a large number of the state’s residents. State Liquor Division administrator Jeff Anderson says the brand is offensive to Mormons, who make up more than a quarter of Idaho’s population.
