White Claw Vodka hits select markets

White Claw Vodka

White Claw, the leader in the hard seltzer category, wants to make sure your summer is a boozy blur. White Claw Vodka is officially headed to shelves.

White Claw boasts this launch as “ushering in a new era in America Vodka,” with a secret creative process. So what makes this vodka special? Something White Claw calls “triple wave filtering” which applies the pressure of a 30-foot ocean wave to the vodka. Apparently, this has a smoothing effect on the liquid, as the waves would to rocks or shells found on the beach. Before bottling, the vodka is filtered through activated carbon from charred coconut shells. The spirits range from 30% to 40% alcohol by volume.

The result is a minimal yet complex combination of aromas and sensations in the mouth and nose — subtle notes of citrus at first, then grain, then a velvety finish. Along with the creation of a new process, White Claw also came up with a new way to describe the premium vodka: it’s the “smooovest.”

Like the company’s hard seltzers, White Claw Vodka will be available in a variety of flavors – including Mango, Black Cherry, and Pineapple.

White Claw Vodka + Soda

Alongside this spirits addition, the company is launching White Claw Vodka + Soda in ready-to-drink cans. Each 100-calorie 12-ounce can is made with the namesake spirit, available in Pineapple, Peach, Wild Cherry and Watermelon flavors.

White Claw Vodka and Vodka + Soda will be available in select North American markets starting in March 2023.

Arby’s is releasing 80 Proof French fry flavored vodka

Arby's Vodka

Just when you think every weird alcoholic drink has been invented, think again. Here’s Arby’s Vodka, flavored like their French fries, debuts this month. 

Here’s the gist. In a week, Arby’s launches two vodkas that comes in two different flavors – Curly and Crinkle. A countdown is now live at

Arby’s, part of Georgia-based Inspire Brands, partnered with Tattersall Distilling in Minneapolis, Minnesota on spirit, which the distillery announced today on Facebook. 

The Curly Fry Vodka is distilled with cayenne, paprika, onion and garlic. The Crinkle Fry Vodka is apparently more subtle, made with kosher salt and sugar. 

 “Being a potato-based liquor, this limited edition vodka is infused with Crinkle and Curly Fry flavor so Arby’s fans who are of legal drinking age can responsibly enjoy our menu from bag to bottle.”  – Patrick Schwing, chief marketing officer of Arby’s.

Arby’s Vodka is part of a larger partnership with celebrity (and apparent Arby’s fan) Justin Sutherland, who has created two sBloody Mary recipes using both vodkas. These drinks feature other Arby’s menu items like Horsey sauce and Arby’s sauce. The bloody Marys are intended to be topped with mozzarella sticks or even more fries. An official announcement from Inspire Brands on the mixes are coming soon. 

These limited editions vodkas are 80 Proof each, and will be a available for $59.99 per bottle on November 18th

Surdyk’s Liquor will fulfill orders through to residents in California, Connecticut, District for Columbia, Florida, Idaho, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, Oregon, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
