LiV (rhymes with five) is an artisan distilled potato vodka, using traditional small batch pot and column distillation. LiV is uniquely crafted using 100% sustainably and locally farmed marcy russet potatoes from Long Island.
This is a smaller varietal potato about 2 inches in diameter, that contributes more skin to fruit, adding to the vodka’s richness of flavor and viscosity.
LiV is a naturally gluten free spirit of exceptional quality. It has been embraced by the world’s foremost mixologists who appreciate the distinctive vanilla nose, creamy mouth feel with vanilla, banana, and citrus flavors with just enough fire on the finish.
|Long Island Spirits, founded in 2007, is the first craft distillery since the 1800’s located on Long Island, in Baiting Hollow, NY. The distillery is home of LiV Vodka, and is surrounded by 5,000 acres of potato farms, in the heart of the acclaimed wine region on the North Fork of Long Island. Long Island Spirits is uniquely a farm-to-bottle hand craft distiller operation.
After sourcing the potatoes, the artisan distillers mash and ferment them, before distilling the wash through the twin, 650-liter custom-made copper pot stills equipped with 30-foot tall rectification distillation columns. Each batch is distilled three times over, before removing the heads and tails from the distillate and bringing the hearts to proof with water sourced from an aquifer beneath the 100,000-acre Pine Barrens Forest Preserve.
