LIV A Little

Now you can put the "Long Island" back into your Long Island Iced Tea with LIV Vodka. Distilled and bottled in Baiting Hollow, LIV (rhymes with jive) Vodka is made from 100% potatoes, which are grown right on the North Fork! 

This local distillery, said to be the first on Long Island since the 1800s, is housed within an historic barn, which was restored from 2001-2006. 

To have your vodka and drink it too, stop at the barn, located at 2182 Sound Avenue in Baiting Hollow. If you're not going to be in the area, you can also find LIV Vodka at various restaurants and stores, including Stew Leonard's in Farmingdale.

You should also know that LIV Vodka was compared to Grey Goose and Chopin in a 2008 blind taste test conducted by LI Business News, and it passed with flying colors. Scoring an 85, LIV got some Strong Island points for its texture, smoothness, aroma and finish. We've had it alone and in mixed drinks and agree that the stuff is good (and we're not just saying that because we like supporting our local businesses). Do yourself a favor and, the next time you head out to Long Island's wine country, try some of Long Island's Vodka too.
