Sweet Grass Vodka, 40% ABV is a potato based vodka produced in Charleston, South Carolina. It won a Silver Award at the Bartender Spirits Awards 2022. The vodka is continuously distilled, resulting in a spirit that is ultra-smooth and lacking the strong alcohol notes often found in vodka. Each bottle includes a single blade of grass from Charleston.
