Hangar 1 Vodka is American-made

Origin: USA; $33

Hangar 1 delivers precisely what unflavored vodka should: clean alcohol with good body and no defects. It’s a benchmark liquor from a pair of distilling geniuses in California’s wine country, most often used as the base for their flavored vodkas (which range from kaffir lime to wasabi), but also tastes fantastic chilled and straight up or in a martini. Hangar 1 represents a blend of two very different vodkas: one from Midwest American wheat, the other from Viognier grapes from California.
