Upstate Vodka by Sauvage Distillery: The Big Apple’s Vodka

By Glasgow Skinner/ My Life On And Off The Guest List @guestlistblog

Ready for a new vodka that just hit the market? We know what you're thinking, what makes this particular vodka so special? What makes it unique is it is distilled from apples. Before we continue, we must stress, Upstate is in no way, shape or form, an apple-flavored vodka. It is also not an apple infused vodka. Upstate Vodka is a small batch, craft-distilled vodka made from apples. We know you're used to vodkas made from potatoes or grains, but we promise you will love it.

As you can guess, the apples used to distill this innovative vodka comes from upstate New York farmers; Oneonta to be exact, where Upstate Vodka is also produced. It features a little sweet pre-taste from apples which disappears almost right away. Upstate is 90 proof and contains 45 Alc/vol, higher than the industry standard of 80 proof and 40 Alc. It is available in 750 and 375ml bottles (pictured above). There are many delicious cocktails you can create with Upstate and we're happy to share a few with you below
