A 2013 Gold medal winner at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Volstead Vodka is a refreshingly sober approach to old-world potato vodka. The vodka is filtered for purity and smoothness. At 84 proof, Volstead is naturally gluten free and handcrafted using neutral grain spirits, pure Cascade mountain water and a deep respect for the cocktail making experience. And the alcohol is drily dedicated to Andrew Volstead, the father of Prohibition.
