Review: LiV Vodka

liv vodka

Who knew they grew potatoes on Long Island? Who knew they made vodka out of them?

Crazy, yet here we are, with LiV Vodka — aka Long Island Vodka, 80 proof, all potato-based, and bottled in French glass.

The flavor is unique. While it lacks a discernible nose, it’s got a huge rush of flavor on initial sipping. The body is initially like a blanco tequila, strong and herbal, with green pepper character. A traditional, medicinal vodka punch hits next, then fades to a semi-sweet, vanilla-touched finish.

Ultimately this is an interesting spirit, but I find it a bit too busy for casual consumption, a common complaint I tend to have with potato vodkas. That said, I can see this standing in — for tequila, even, give it a shot! — in some cocktails, and with a good vermouth and olives, it’s a solid martini base, too.

80 proof.

B / $32

    I like the clean design. Potin is made from the noble potatoe and now legal again…now where have we heard that before ;-)

    Are you kidding? This vodka is horrible, it reeks of potatoes in taste and smell. The only people that would choose this vodka are people that don’t know a good vodka.
