Kate Hudson Is Launching Her Own Line of Vodka—and Bottles Are Just $25
Hudson is seeking to make female-founded vodka the way of the future.
Kate Hudson is no longer just an entrepreneur in the athleisure world—she's forging her way into the world of spirits too. The actress announced the launch of King St. Vodka this week, hoping to offer women what they are looking for in a spirit.
"After a particularly long day, I decided to host an impromptu cocktail party with my closest friends," Hudson says in an Instagram post. "As I prepared to whip up a batch of dirty vodka martinis I surveyed my bar, but I wasn't 100% happy with my options. Then I wondered, 'Are any of these vodkas founded by women?' I did some research, and they weren't. So, I decided to make my own just the way I like it!"
King St. Vodka is inspired by Hudson's greatest memories hosting friends and sharing special moments over cocktails in her former home on King Street in Manhattan. According to a press release, this vodka is distilled seven times in small batches, is naturally gluten-free and free of GMOs and utilizes alkaline water for distilling. It has 43% ABV and is produced in Santa Barbara, California.
"I have always found the spirits industry fascinating, and I love Dirty Vodka Martinis," Hudson says in a press release. "The creative side of me thought it would be a fun challenge to develop a vodka for my palate, and in a beautiful package that I would love to have on my bar and share with friends. The businessperson in me is now looking forward to the challenge of building a brand in an entirely new industry."
King St. Vodka is first launching in BevMo! Locations across California and in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island shortly after. If you don't live in one of these states, you'll still be able to get a hold of a bottle online. The company hasn't announced an official launch date, but the website says to follow them on Instagram to get first dibs on a bottle—which will cost just $24.99.
