The Story Behind Trust Me Vodka
Trust Me is a proudly American vodka. Not only is the brand known for its spirit being exceptionally good, but they commit to sharing creativity and passion for the arts. The brand collaborates with global artists — Rashelle Stetman, Caia Koopman, and Donny Gillies, to name a few — to showcase their creations on the vodka bottle.
Each piece of art is special as it is a limited release of only 20,000 units. To put it simply: Trust Me vodka advocates greatly for putting art in both your bottle and glass of cocktail.
Do You Know?
How It’s Made
While Trust Me vodka believes in disclosing everything in the vodka, it’s just as important that they tell you what isn’t. Here are some things you won’t find in their vodka: pesticides, herbicides, and chemical fertilizers.
They are also proud to tell you that they go through (and have passed!) a rigorous USDA certification process . They strongly believe in using renewable energy sources, running their facilities on wind power.
Trust Me vodka uses premium wheat and potatoes from Idaho for its spirits and blends them with water from a deep well in the Teton Mountains. This water is filtered through volcanic rocks to remove impurities.
The spirit’s ingredients are all proudly US-made — the brand believes that they have everything they need to make the ultra-premium vodka right there in Idaho.
What Trust Me Vodka Offers
Certified Organic Vodka
When Trust Me says that they use only the most premium ingredients for their spirit, you have to, well, trust them. The brand sources their local organic wheat in Idaho, blended with pure water filtered through volcanic rock. This pure process ensures that the spirit stays crisp and clean, whether blended into cocktails or drunk in shots.
A gluten-free diet is a must for people who have celiac disease. For this reason, Trust Me vodka has certified gluten-free vodka just for them. Instead of grains, the brand uses Idaho potatoes and the same water from the Teton Mountains as their organic brand for a gluten-free option.
Trust Me vodka’s bottled cocktails are delicious, tasting as though they’ve been made from scratch. Mixologists blended the brand’s signature potato vodka with fresh, quality ingredients to ensure that this stays delicious whether poured over ice or blended in custom drinks. These are bottled at 34 proof (17 percent ABV).
White Russian, Pina Colada, and Pineapple Jalapeno are just some names in the Bottled Cocktails collection.

Compared To Other Vodka Brands
Ciroc vodka stands out from the crowd because of its use of fine French grapes, instead of grains, in the vodka production process. This gives it a delightfully fresh, fruity flavor, best straight up or mixed with lemonade or other fruit juices.
A 750ml bottle of Ciroc vodka costs around $27, which is more or less similar to Trust Me’s pricing.
Grey Goose is another French vodka brand. It was made with the idea of crafting a luxury vodka brand for the American market. Having a bottle in your liquor cabinet was just as good as having a Rolls Royce in your garage or a Rolex on your wrist.
Grey Goose was given the title “Best Tasting Vodka in the World” by the Beverage Tasting Institute in 1998. You can get a 750ml bottle of Grey Goose for around $32, which is slightly more expensive than Trust Me. See the comparison of Grey Goose & Chopin vodkas here.
Beluga Noble vodka hails from Russia. The brand boasts of a distinctive chemical-free vodka production process (much like Trust Me), which lends it an unbelievably silky mouthfeel. Flavor notes include vanilla, oatmeal, and honey, and it gets noticeably spicier on the back palate.
A 750ml bottle of Beluga vodka costs around $45 versus Trust’s Me’s $30.
