The Badass Soul-Seeking Warrior Podcast Series, Episode 3: Leslie Farhangi

I first learned of Peony Vodka in the August 2016 issue of O Magazine.  Peonies are my favorite flower so I was intrigued.  As I researched more about the vodka I learned that it was the brainchild of Leslie Farhangi, a Stanford educated attorney who no longer enjoyed being a lawyer so she packed up and moved with her family to a 200-acre farm in the Hudson Valley.   Peony Vodka is a subtly flavored spirit born in eastern Hudson Valley, New York. Drawing inspiration from Dutchess County’s varied landscape, sparkling meadows and rushing brooks, stone walls and inviting trails, Peony Vodka was created to celebrate country living. Three Meadows Spirits’ operations take place in a historic 18th-century house nestled on a 200-acre farm of hay fields, pastures, woods and luscious rows of peony flowers that burst into fragrant bloom each June.

I know that you will enjoy Leslie’s story of passion and perseverance as she speaks about her journey of becoming a player in the very crowded world of vodka.
