    10 Reyka Vodka
    Grain & Oily
    Reyka's distillery is located in the town of Bogarnes on the west coast of Iceland. Barley grain spirit (barley and some wheat) is brought to them from Scotland where it is redistilled in a single distillation in a copper-lined Carter-Head still. Each batch produces about 255 cases and takes six hours to complete. The vodka is filtered through lava rock and the water used to bring the vodka to proof is arctic spring water. The distillery is powered by geothermal energy from underground volcanoes and as a result, produces zero emissions.

    9 Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka
    Neutral & Grain
    Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka, now made in several countries around the world, has origins in Russia. In 1864, Pyotr Smirnov founded his distillery in Moscow. Years later under his heirs' ownership, the distillery was lost during the Russian Revolution in 1917 when the Bolsheviks took control. Vladimir, one of the sons, fled and wound up in France where he established another distillery. He gave that distillery a French version of his last name, Smirnoff. In 1934, Vladimir sold the rights to Rudolph Kunett to sell Smirnoff in the US and Canada where Kunett had established a distillery in Connecticut. The ownership has changed a few times, but is now owned by Diageo. Smirnoff is distilled via continuous distillation and made from grain. It is charcoal filtered and bottled at 40% ABV. Note: As of October 2018, Smirnoff No. 21 is now made with non-GMO grain, specifically non-GMO corn. It is gluten free. Updated packaging as well.
