About Bootlegger New York Craft Vodka
The Do Good Spirits distillery is situated in Roscoe, New York ― a town that lies within two hours of driving distance from New York City that is renowned for its fly fishing. Located in the former Roscoe Firehouse and VFW Hall, they are pursuing their dream of producing high-quality spirits while helping the local economy on the way. Their symbols are the poppy flower and Florian Cross. The first serves as a way of remembering fallen soldiers, the second the patron saint of firefighters. Formerly known as Prohibition Distillery, the current name comes from a toast that the founder and head distiller Brian Facquet's navy buddy made before his last deployment: "Do Good Spirits… Good People, Good Spirits, Good Times. To Do Good!"
Bootlegger New York Craft Vodka began as a dream to make a craft spirit sourced from local ingredients, which would be a celebration of the American spirit during Prohibition. Made from 100% American corn, this vodka is gluten-free and distilled six times before being charcoal-filtered using a proprietary process, blended with Catskill Mountain water, and bottled by hand. "We’ve taken vodka to a higher level and the vodka aficionados are taking notice, and awarding medals. What else would you expect from a spirit born in the Catskill Mountains?" With a hint of green apple and an uncharacteristically smooth finish (this vodka has no burn!), it earned a Gold Medal at the 2010 New York International Spirits Competition.

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.
