Nestled among wineries along the famous wine trail of the North Fork lies Long Island Spirits Craft Distillery in Baiting Hollow. LiV, short for Long Island Vodka, is hand crafted and traditionally made with locally sourced potatoes.
I love the new term “farm-to-bottle” the makers of LiV use to describe their process.
Technically, the end result of even grain based alcohol is gluten-free after distillation, but there are some of us (myself included) that seem to have some sort of reaction to grain alcohol. I don’t have an answer as to why, I just know that I can’t drink grain alcohol. This is why I’ve become well acquainted with different spirits that are not derived from grain, and as it turns out, potato vodka is well respected among vodka connoisseurs. So, remember, instead of looking like you’re high maintenance when ordering a drink, you’ll really just look like a booze snob when you inquire about grain-free vodkas!
How LiV Gluten-Free Vodka is made…
As you can see, LiV is a premium, award winning vodka without the premium price!
