Many states are banning Russian Vodka over the nation’s ongoing conflict with Ukraine. As a result, you may be asking yourself the question “what Vodka can I drink?” The good news is you still have plenty of options. In fact, this is a great reason to start supporting North Carolina Vodka brands. We all know NC is home to lots of craft brews but did you know we also have several distilleries featuring a variety of liquors?
While people commonly associate vodka with Russia much of what we drink in the United States isn’t Russian at all. In fact, there are really only a few vodkas that are being banned:
- Russian Standard
- Beluga Noble Russian
- Beluga Noble
- Russian Gold Vodka Zyr Russian
So that actually leaves you with a lot of options. But instead of reaching for the large national brands this weekend do yourself a favor and grand a North Carolina vodka. With summer fast approaching there are plenty of options to put in that Moscow mule, vodka soda, or my personal favorite vodka lemonade. And whether you make your drink at home or enjoy it on a patio you can do so knowing you are supporting the local economy. So feel good about your drink and as always make sure you drink responsibly. Cheers!
