About Air Vodka
Every liter of Air Vodka they produce cleans as much CO2 from the air as 8 fully-grown Acacia trees. The technology is used to capture CO2 from the air, while the sunlight generates the electricity needed to reform the CO2 and water into alcohol, the only by-product being oxygen. The resulting expression has no impurities, sugar, or carbohydrates. The world's most sustainable spirit is also incredibly crisp, clean, pure, and unbelievably smooth. It's only the first step for the company that is going to apply the same technology to various different industries, all with the goal of converting carbon dioxide into products with added value.

Their unique technology is able to mimic photosynthesis in a fast and efficient way, transforming carbon dioxide into ethyl alcohol without any impurities that is suitable for spirits, fragrances, sanitizers, and various other applications. In the future, it might even be used as carbon-negative fuel!
Historians are not clear on the exact origin of vodka since different sources link its beginning to both Russia and Poland. But one thing is clear: this somewhat simple spirit, first used as a medicinal concoction, has become one of the most versatile drinks in the world.
It can be distilled from any type of grains, potatoes, or even grapes worldwide. Due to its simplicity, this unaged spirit's main flavor factor is the quality of water and the ingredients used in the distillation process.
Primarily used in cocktails, vodka can also stand its ground when enjoyed neat.
