About Fuzzy's Ultra Premium Vodka Indy 500 Edition
Frank Urban Zoeller, known affectionately as “Fuzzy,” is world renowned for his successful golfing career, his charismatic personality, and his award winning vodka. In homage to his cocktail of choice the “vodka tonic,” he launched Fuzzy Vodka in 2009. The Indiana- based spirits brand is produced by Fuzzy Spirits LLC in Indianapolis. The critically acclaimed ultra premium vodka is the official vodka of INDYCAR.
Fuzzy Vodka credits it's unique production process for it's award winning taste:
“The vodka is distilled five times from American corn and then filtering ten times through charcoal and lava. After distilling, a portion of the distillate is rested in new oak barrels, an extremely rare process in the production of vodka. The addition of Cascade Mountain spring water, known as some of the purest water in the world, completes the process.”
This process yields quality, a smoother, creamier resultant spirit that has won countless awards, including a Gold medal at the 2016 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The Ultimate Spirits Challenge gave Fuzzy's a 93 calling it “Clean…The bright, pure nose, underpinned with just a muted alcohol, is a prelude to a round creaminess on the palate, which unravels with subtle notes of fresh green fern and pine. Finish is crisp and bright.”
In 2013 Fuzzy Vodka became the major sponsor of INDYCAR’S “Triple Crown,” a series featuring the Indianapolis 500, Pocono INDYCAR 400 and the MAVTV 500. In 2016, in commemoration of the history of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and past Indianapolis 500 winners, Fuzzy Vodka celebrated the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 with a limited-edition release. Ed Carpenter Racing featured a Fuzzy’s Ultra Premium Vodka paint scheme for their No. 21 Chevrolet, which was driven by Josef Newgarden. Fuzzy’s Ultra Premium Vodka first sponsored Carpenter’s entry in the 2010 Indianapolis 500.
Fuzzy has launched two commemorative bottles in honor of the 100th year of the illustrious premier open wheel racing tradition, and it's longstanding relationship with the legendary series. The first release is a 750ml bottle adorned with the names of the past 500 Indianapolis winners. It is bottled at 40% ABV.

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.
