Let’s put the myth to bed; not all vodkas are made from potatoes, in fact less that 1% of vodka sold in the United States is produced from potatoes. While a far superior alcohol can be crafted from potatoes, grain has replaced it over the last century as a more readily available crop.
Idaho Potatoes® are grown under ideal conditions. They benefit from the rich, volcanic soil, the snow melt-water, the clean air, and the moderate climate of Eastern Idaho. This ideal climate creates superior potatoes from which we can produce high-grade ethyl alcohol. This ethyl alcohol is used to make the potato-based vodka that is rare and superior.
