Drake’s Organic Spirits Enters Japan

Leading distiller of ultra-premium organic vodka and rum brings it Spiked Ice

freeze-and-eat adult treats to Costco locations in the Land of the Rising Sun


Minneapolis, MN ( September 25, 2020 ) – Drake’s Organic Spirits announced today the

launch of its popular Spiked Ice freeze-and-eat adult treats at all 27 Costco locations in

Japan, which owns the world’s third-largest economy and is populated by over 125 million


Drake’s Organic Spiked Ice freeze and eat or chill and drink popsicles feature 15% ABV and

only 80 calories each. Spiked Ice is available in four flavors - Mango Rum Punch, Vodka

Lemonade, Watermelon Martini and Classic Mojito - and are made with Drake’s award-winning all-organic ultra-premium vodka and white rum. They contain no artificial

colors or flavors and freeze with twice the ABV as other brands. Adhering to Japan’s strict organic standards and requirements is the biggest hurdle for overseas firms trying to get a foothold in the nation. All Drake’s Organic Spirits are certified USDA organic, non-GMO Project Verified, gluten-free, vegan and kosher. The five certifications ensure a cleaner drinking option that comes only from the highest quality organic ingredients.


“We’re thrilled that consumers in Japan will now be able enjoy Drake’s highly-popular Spiked

Ice treats,” said Drake’s Founder and CEO Mark Anderson. “Japanese customers are

extremely quality conscious and Japan was among the first countries to seek organic and

non-gmo products. Spiked Ice is perfect for a market ready for our great tasting, high-quality

organic certified spirits. Drake’s is still the only spirit brand in the world to hold all five health

and wellness certifications.”

The launch of Drake’s Organic Spirits products in Japan was scheduled for earlier 2020 but

delayed due to the global coronavirus pandemic. A complete list of Costco locations in
