Company creates ‘world’s first’ sweet potato vodka

California-based spirits company Corbin has claimed it has produced the “world’s first” vodka made from sweet potatoes.

More than 10 pounds of sweet potatoes are used in the production of each bottle of vodka

Corbin California Estate Grown Sweet Potato Vodka is the latest spirit to join the company’s portfolio of sweet potato-based variants, made from produce grown on the Souza family’s farm in Jan Joaquin Valley.

Marketed as a small batch distilled sprit, the vodka requires more than 10 pounds of sweet potatoes and the assistance of around “100 hands” to produce each bottle.

Bottled at 40% abv, it’s described as having a “creamy mouthfeel and medium body, with nutty caramel undertones” and “a hint of sweetness on its smooth finish”.

The vodka joins Corbin California Estate Grown Western Dry Gin, Corbin Cash Barrel Reserve Sweet Potato Liqueur, Corbin Cash Blended Whiskey, and Corbin Cash Merced Rye Whiskey.

The Corbin portfolio is available online, and in a number of retailers in Georgia.
Earlier this year a family-run distillery in County Antrim produced what is believed to be Ireland’s first potato vodka.
