Boyd & Blair Potato Vodka was developed by Barry Young and C. Prentiss Orr, two friends who set out to help potato farmers by creating a new demand for their crop. With nearly 300 million potatoes unearthed annually in Pennsylvania, this vodka makes potatoes useful for something other than making potato chips.
Although you might expect a starchy taste from the potato vodka, it's said to be creamier and sweeter than most grain-based vodkas, especially with subtle hints of vanilla and coffee. This vodka makes the perfect addition to fruit-based cocktails, although it's also a spirit that can stand on its own.
Something interesting to know about Boyd & Blair's distillery is that it is set up in a glass factory, where all of its bottles are also manufactured.
