When making our award-winning UV Vodka, no detail is too small. We follow a rigorous procedure to ensure that every bottle meets our high standards. And when it comes to our flavored vodkas, only the finest natural ingredients are good enough for us. Sure, we could skimp on quality and use artificial flavors like practically everybody else. But who wants to be like everybody else?

A better process makes a better vodka

It takes a lot to make vodka as smooth and delicious as ours. Read on to learn about everything we do to make UV Vodka the great pour that it is.

The best beginnings

Most vodka is made from wheat, potatoes or corn. And while vodka can be made from virtually any organic material that yields sugar, our thorough research and experimentation has confirmed that there’s nothing better than yellow corn grown right here in the American Midwest.

Distilled four times

Distillation is the process that turns our top-quality corn into alcohol. Many expensive brands feel that distilling three times is plenty, but we’ve found that four cycles create a spirit of optimal purity, neutrality and character. It may take longer for us to make it, but we think vodka this good is worth the extra effort.

Painstakingly pure

Since 80-proof vodka is 60 percent H20, the water used makes a huge difference. Ours is drawn from the deep aquifers of Princeton, Minnesota. It’s then filtered using carbon filtration and reverse osmosis. This is all to say that, when you’re enjoying UV Vodka, you can be certain your vodka is as perfect as possible.

Supremely smooth

You can tell a lot about a vodka by its pH. Ours has a pH of 6.0, which is in the same neighborhood as many superpremium vodkas. This means that UV Vodka is about as neutral of a spirit as you can get. And it’s this neutrality that gives our vodka its smooth, award-winning taste.
