Likewise, it is the most essential ingredient in one of life's most pleasurable spirits, vodka. Because all vodka is 60 percent water, the purity and crispness of the water used during distillation is paramount to the flavor and balance of the vodka. Blue Ice Potato Vodka begins with water from one of the most unspoiled sources in North America, water that originates from the glacial ice of the Rocky Mountains. The water seeps through hundreds of feet of porous volcanic rock before it reaches our 200-foot deep well. This pristine water requires absolutely no purification or chemical treatment. The name, Blue Ice, refers to the purest form of ice glaciers and defines our enthusiasm for purity. Blue Ice Vodka, owned by 21st Century Spirits based in Los Angeles, California, and known for its smooth taste and technologically advanced distillation methods using Idaho Russet Potatoes, this month will introduce Blue Ice Organic Wheat Vodka, the American brand’s first line extension since its introduction to the market in 2001.
