Sun Country to offer new booze options from Minnesota makers

Fulton and Prairie Organic will feature on the in-flight menu.

Sun Country flights will have even more of a Minnesotan flavor starting Friday.

The Eagan-based airline announced on Thursday that it is adding more Minnesota-made booze to its in-flight menu.

As of today, passengers on all Sun Country flights will find Fulton Lonely Blonde and Prairie Organic gin and vodka among their options.

It's a far cry from this time last year, when the Eagan-based – but New York investment group-owned – airline announced it was dropping Surly Furious IPA from its menu.

The uproar in response prompted a swift climbdown, with the beer reinstated to menus less than 10 days later.

Thursday's announcement will be more welcome, with Sun Country's Chief Marketing Officer Brian Davis saying: "We are proud to add these great brands to our menu and to offer guests a taste of Minnesota when they fly with us.

"We are continually looking at ways to provide an exceptional onboard experience and think our guests will enjoy these great additions to our menu."

Lonely Blonde will join Surly Furious and Michelob Golden Light on the beer menu, while Prairie Organic will replace Ketel One Vodka and Tanqueray Gin.

It's a big win for both drink-makers, with Fulton's Marketing Director Tucker Gerrick saying: "This is an incredibly proud moment for us at Fulton to be onboard such a respected airline and we couldn’t be happier about it being based in our hometown."
