What's better on a hot summer day than a tall glass of ice cold sweet tea? This stuff, that's what. Jeremiah Weed Southern Style Sweet Tea Vodka ($20) is a 70-proof sweet tea flavored vodka brewed lovingly in southern Kentucky. Joining Jeremiah Weed's legendary bourbon liqueur, a favorite drink of the American fighter pilot, this is one tea that'll have you flying high.
Certified organic and kosher, Prairie Vodka ($25-$45) is thoughtfully distilled from organic yellow corn and crafted in partnership with a co-op of over 900 Minnesota farmers. Besides getting a deliciously smooth drink, you also get the pleasure of knowing it's probably the most eco-friendly item in your home. The fifth-generation owned Phillips Distilling Company take care all the way from the field to the bottle with Prairie. It's packaged in a recyclable glass bottle, packed in a kraft cardboard box made from sustainable forest wood pulp, and uses organic inks on the labels. Even corncobs and other leftovers are converted on-site to biogas energy for powering the stills. It's just about enough to make you drink more.
As the only vodka ever to win the Gold Medal for both taste and design at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Double Cross Vodka ($51) is as tasty as its bottle is amazing. Double Cross is made in the Slovak Republic using a seven-step distillation process, and is filtered seven times using diamond-dust micro filters, active charcoal, and limestone for an extra clean taste. Perfect for your next celebration. [via]
