Israeli Vodka brand, Aviv 613, draws from multiple grain and fruit products, including wheat, barley, olives, figs, dates, grapes and pomegranates. The vodka is distilled four times and partnered with water from the Sea of Galilee and Israel's natural aquifers.

It's a premium spirit that's family-made in the town of Tzvat by master artisans who moved there from Russia in 1824. Aviv 613 is smooth and fresh, also kosher, and costs $30.

Another fun fact about the beverage is it was part of a gift basket given to the Oscar nominees after the ceremony. So not only is it an exclusive taste, it's also critically acclaimed. It's believed to be a luxury vodka that's spiritually infused from the Holy Land and is apparently prized by A-list celebrities as well.
