SKYY90 Vodka

SKYY90 was the first vodka ever initially distilled to 200 proof

Origin: USA; $33

SKYY’s initial claim to fame was a vodka relatively free of congeners — the stuff leftover from distillation that can cause hangovers and headaches. They have gone another step with their new SKYY90 bottle: processed in a new $25 million facility, this vodka is the first ever distilled to 200 proof, meaning zero leftover water or byproducts. Water from Sierra Mountain gets blended back in to bring it down to 90 proof, yielding an impressively crisp, clean taste — and inspiring the name.
