About Quri Vodka

QURI is an award-winning premium Peruvian vodka made with quinoa sourced from a single-

family farm (resting in the shadows of the glacier covered Andes that trickle into Lake Titicaca

and a dormant volcano) and ancient Andean glacier water filtered through volcanic stone made

in micro-45 gallon batches. The spirit of QURI vodka is one of respect. Respect for the people

and land that have been producing the greatest quinoa in the world for over 5,000 years. And

respect for the painstaking process of distilling fine premium spirits. Quri is the love of a people,

so we’ve pledged 5% of net profits to help impoverished young women receive support to

survive and thrive from the daily necessities to education all the way through university; one girl

at a time.
