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.
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 ArbysVodka.com to residents in California, Connecticut, District for Columbia, Florida, Idaho, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, Oregon, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
LaGrange, Georgia based Wild Leap Brew Co. is expanding into spirits this fall.
August 12th in the taproom is the first time brewery fans will be able to sample Wild Leap Vodka. The 8 times distilled spirit is made from 100% yellow corn, carbon filtered and gluten and sugar-free.
The vodka is currently distilled off-site by an unnamed partner.
Wild Leap will feature a cocktail menu in addition to their beer lineup. Expect vodka tonic, dirty martinis, as well as in-house creations like Sunset Mule and Blueberry Basil Smash.
Wild Leap Vodka will be available in package stores and Georgia bars later this month.
