What do you do if you just can’t seem to find that perfect straight Vodka?

The folk at the Hangar 1 Distillery know the answer to that question. Located at a WWII repurposed aircraft hangar on Alameda Island in San Francisco Bay, Hangar 1 is fond of a good airplane reference and it was basically born because they wanted a straight, but not harsh, but still deep, but also perfectly balanced and even a slightly fruity Vodka. Founded in 2001 by Ansley Coale, the very same one who founded the legendary Germain-Robain Craft Distillers back in the 1980s, and St. George Spirits, Hangar 1 soon became an exclusive grape-based Vodka distiller. Today, it’s owned by Proximo Spirits of New Jersey and their myriad of offerings includes infused Vodkas and a Californian-French Brandy blend.

The Spirit that started it all – their Straight Vodka – is an American Vodka, made one batch at a time. Sourcing fine grapes of the Viognier variety at the peak of their ripeness and blending them with Midwestern grains, this is one “winey” Vodka (it definitely won’t have you whining, though!). It’s everything Hangar 1 (and us, to be honest.) ever wanted in a Vodka – it’s floral, it’s fresh, it’s light and bottled at 80 proof, it’s just the perfect mixer. Or, a neater, if you want it to be.

Vodka can be made anywhere in the world and pretty much of any ingredient that contains starch.

For a potato-based Vodka, 12kg (26.5lbs) potatoes are needed to produce a single bottle.
The average life of a $50 bill in circulation is 55 months before it is replaced due to wear.
You won't impress the bartender by ordering Vodka-soda, but it's a good choice if you want to avoid unecessary sugar intake and make sure you stay hydrated when consuming alcohol.
Seems that Vodka is a lightweight—quite literally. This clear Spirit actually weighs less than water. One liter of water weighs 1,000 grams, while the same amount of Vodka only clocks in at 953 grams.
It looks like potato chips and flavored Vodka are two things where the producers unleash their imagination. Bubble gum, fresh cut grass, pumpkin pie, marshmallow, and coconut water hardly begin to describe the many flavors of Vodka.
Unlike its boozy brethren Bourbon and Scotch, Vodka can be made anywhere in the world. But it’s Eastern Europe that gets the credit for its birth. Just don’t ask Russia and Poland to get to the bottom of it—both argue that they masterminded the Spirit first.
