ST. CROIX — It was a grand celebration in Sion Farm on Saturday as Mutiny Island Vodka celebrated the official launch of the world’s first and only vodka that is distilled from the starchy breadfruit that is grown in tropical areas. The day was also dedicated to the grand opening of Mutiny Island Vodka’s home at the Sion Farm Distillery.

An energetic crowd braved the mid-summer heat to witness the ribbon cutting for the facility that has taken up residency in the old Island Dairies location. After being shuttered for close to a decade, the property was transformed into the distillery. On Saturday, the spacious grounds hosted a festival with tents, food trucks, vendors, demonstrations, exhibits, live entertainment and lots of cocktails featuring Mutiny Island Vodka.
