Fifty States Vodka was created to honor our beautiful country and to remind us to embrace that unity is everything. With superb clarity, this corn-based, Non-GMO vodka has clean aromas of a mountain spring and salt rock. The palate hints at coconut-like sweetness with a creamy, velvety, and medium dry body. Finishing crisp, clean and silky smooth. This is a nuanced vodka of the highest order. After sitting down with the owners, I was able to obtain their main goal as a brand. They wanted to immediately catch the eye of the consumer, and draw them to the gorgeous package and design of the bottle. When I first saw the brand Fifty States Vodka, my eyes were in fact completely glued to this beautiful red. white, and blue bottle, with stars and stripes proudly representing it. That was the same day I was introduced to the owner of the brand at a local liquor store tasting they had set up. He explained about his wonderful concept and asked me to try the vodka warm, instead of shaken with ice. He insisted that you would have no burn in the throat on the way down, which is a taste you will find in most vodkas on the market. Boy was he right! This family owned brand was one of the smoothest vodkas I might have ever tried. I was sold from that day forward. Quality is what they strive for. After taste, I was so intrigued to hear the story on how this family created such a beautiful brand and the journey to get to this point.
In today’s visual world, brand recognition is how you create a connection with the consumer. Owner Tom Liberati always wanted to create a superb vodka that you knew right away was made in the United States. He said, "whenever I would sit at any bar or restaurant, I would tend to wander and stare at certain brands on the shelves. It then clicked that not one bottle represented the USA. I started to ponder, what if we created a vodka that stands out with the proud colors of Red, White, and Blue. People tend to believe that quality vodka can only come from other countries. It was then I knew, I wanted to create a bottle that displayed our beautiful country in the highest nuance, paired with the best tasting and smoothest vodka".
Tom and his family then took things to the next level pairing up the bottle concept with a master distiller in the United States. They created a formula that will forever go down in history. In 2015 they officially launched The Fifty States brand.
Fifty States Vodka has decided to bring unity to the world through their nationwide platform. Our goal is to bring unity in the creativity of local artists and having people connect to their expression. What better way than to incorporate expression, representation and art designed right onto their bottle. The brand wants a nation spread of different artists from each state to design a custom 'State Series Edition' bottle. This will entail drawing or graffitiing art that represents the selected state in which you choose. Once a winner is chosen, that design will be placed on the limited edition bottles and sold throughout that state. It's an opportunity for a local artist to have a state wide platform! We want people to connect to the creativity of You can visit their website at fiftystatesvodka.com to download the PDF file to enter and submit your drawings.
