Vodka remains the world’s most popular spirit, with more brands than ever flooding the market. The fear of oversaturation hasn’t stopped producers from rolling out new options all the time, made from such diverse raw materials as potatoes, wheat and rice. From Japan to Sweden to the U.S., these are seven new vodka bottles (and boxes) to try now.
6: THE STREET PUMAS ($31)
This brand has taken aim at giving well spirits an upgrade. This bottling starts with a full-strength Polish potato vodka, which is then diluted down to 40 proof in Jerez, Spain (where all of The Street Pumas spirits are proofed and bottled). While some might consider the $30-plus range a bit steep for the well, where most bars keep value-priced spirits, this is a clean, quality pour.
