    Crop organic cucumber vodka from Minnesota.

    BlueCoat also makes Vieux Carre Absinthe which besides a beautiful bottle is quite impressive. I have sampled all of the Leopold Bros. products and all are impressive including the flavored whiskeys...Another Colorado distiller-Caprock makes amzing small batch organic Vodka & Gin. I had the pleasure of meeting the Distiller who apparently recieved his training from the mastermind behind St. George.
    Does anybody have any other American liquors of note not already mentioned? This has become my latest new obsession.

    How correct you are. And, really, the list is quite long even when you solely consider vodka. Just think of the brand owners in your backyard; Colorado Vodka (Manitou Springs), Altitude Spirits Vodka 14 (Boulder) 44 North (Rigby, ID), Teton Glacier (also Rigby).

    Move on to Vermont and you get Vermont Spirits' They are also noteworthy in that they produce vodka from the sugar of Maple sap alone, and also offer a 'white’ edition distilled from milk sugar.

    And then there is Maurice Kanbar who in addition to founding Skyy Vodka (San Francisco) is an industry unto himself. Have you tried his latest hand-crafted offering, Blue Angel, or his nephews' brainchild Dragon Bleu distilled from wheat, barley and rye? Or Dripping Springs Vodka from the Texas town of the same name?

    So many quality spirits and so little time. Ice Jacket ( will soon launch a campaign to review all American Vodkas and a broad range of American Spirits and will be looking to the blogosphere for input and direction as to what products qualify for inclusion within the category of American made.

    So, please stay tuned and keep your eyes open. It will not be long before the Ice Jacket American Spirits Campaign commences. Take care until then, and enjoy the 4th of July!

    as long as we're on the American Made theme, let's not forget:

    Tito's Vodka from Austin, TX, and Leopold Bros. Absinthe from Denver, CO. Both of these are world class selections. Acutally, Leopold Bros. does gin, rum, absinthe, and vodka, but I can only vouche for the absinthe, personally.
