Pure Milk Vodka
Yeah, you read that correctly, 100% pure milk vodka. Black Cow, a distillery based in West Dorset, England, transforms grass-fed cow milk into liquor. The whey from producing cheese is fermented into milk beer, which is then distilled, mixed, and filtered. The resulting vodka tastes sweet, with undertones of vanilla and cinnamon, and again is only available in the United Kingdom.

This Chilled Dills pickle-flavoured vodka is extremely hard to make. The tequila is distilled six times before flavour infusion begins, and the infusion process includes ultrasonic waves, which, according to Chilled Dills, “create(s) chemical compounds that we can then filter out. The result is a cleaner, more pure spirit than can be created with traditional distilling practices.” Bloody Marys and mojitos are some examples that can be made using this liquor.

Resist the temptation to pour hot sauce directly into your glass and get this spicy vodka instead. This fiery, liquor (30% ABV) is inspired by the popular hot sauce, Sriracha, and even has a similar package shape. This liquor is meant to spice up your regular old Bloody Mary. If you are not into that, it can even be combined with raspberry schnapps and cranberry juice to make a weirdly sweet, sour and spicy cocktail.

According to FAIR, the brand that creates it, this is the first and only vodka created with quinoa. Quinoa is cultivated in volcanic soils on the Altiplano plateau in the Andes mountains, and it’s the fruit of a union between French distillers and Andean farmers. The vodka received a truly outstanding rating from the Beverage Tasting Institute, which stated that it has soft, dryish light-to-medium body and an exquisitely smooth custard, dried fruit, and limestone accented finish. It’s a smooth, refined, and tasty vodka that is great on its own but still works well in cocktails.
