OGDEN, UTAH -- Five Wives Vodka says it will continue to sponsor the Boise Music Festival even though at this point their vodka can't be sold in Idaho.
As we reported earlier this week, the State Liquor Division said the vodka market is too crowded and this brand, Five Wives Vodka, could be offensive.
The Utah distillery behind the vodka says it's received overwhelming support from Idahoans and sold 1000 'Free the Five Wives' t-shirts.
“We are absolutely humbled by the support of the people in our neighboring state,” said Steve Conlin, partner and vice president of marketing for Ogden’s Own Distillery. “We’ve sold so many t-shirts to Idaho residents that we think it is only fair to give those proceeds back in sponsorship dollars.”
