Here’s How To Toast National Vodka Day
National vodka day is celebrated annually on October 4. In honor of the commemoration, we are sharing various creations to enjoy this versatile spirit. Gone are the days of identifying the distilled beverage as colorless, or flavorless. Today, brands are focusing on ingredients and creating incredible vodka from grains, to beets, potatoes, grapes and apples. To mark the occasion, celebrate by booking a Vodka Distillery Tour, Infuse your own flavored vodka, (we crafted one with cherries, lemon, and hibiscus), or try one of these perfect cocktails to toast National Vodka Day.
This award-winning handcrafted spirit is produced in small batches from a distillery upstate in Oneonta, NY. As we have mentioned them in the past, this facility sources a large variety of New York State apples from local farms to craft well-balanced handmade vodka. The taste involves a sweet, unique pre-taste that is clean and pure.
