Company creates ‘world’s first’ sweet potato vodkaBy Annie Hayes
California-based spirits company Corbin has claimed it has produced the “world’s first” vodka made from sweet potatoes.
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.
