Virginia is For (Vodka) Lovers!

Local Spirit is No Small Potato…

I recently sampled a new kid on the vodka block. Impeccably smooth, with a pleasant lingering creaminess, the triple distilled potato vodka brought images of Kremlins and oversized fur hats to mind. Here’s the shocker – forget booking a flight to Moscow. Just cross the bridge, and visit neighboring Richmond, Virginia to sample Cirrus Vodka, a new American classic.

Made 100% from potatoes, the spirit is triple distilled and bottled at 80 proof. The company says it is blended with “nice spring type water” … and though I am not sure what “spring-type water” means exactly, I don’t really care a whole lot. The vodka tastes good, and that is the bottom line. It has already won several awards, including:

2005 Silver medal, San Francisco World Spirits Competition
2005 Silver medal, Beverage Testing Institute, Chicago
2006 Silver Medal, Beverage Testing Institute, Chicago (Highly Recommended)
2006 Gold medal, San Francisco World Spirits Competition

Give it a whirl at some of these local eateries and watering holes.
