Five Wives Vodka

Five-Wives-VodkaIn June 2012, the US state of Idaho banned that sale of Five Wives Vodka, claiming the brand was offensive to its prominent Mormon population.

The product, which features five women dressed in Mormon attire hitching their skirts up on its label, was launched in November 2011 by Ogden’s Own.

However, later that same month the Idaho State Liquor Division (ISLD) retracted its ban after the distiller of Five Wives Vodka after the brand’s distillery threatened legal action.
