O2: The World's First Sparkling Vodka

Been feeling a bit under the weather...I hope to be feeling up to posting regularly soon. In the meantime, here is some info about O2, which is being billed as "the world's first sparkling vodka."

A long-waited vodka dream ironically came from England. As some magazines would call it “the champagne of vodkas” the O2 vodka is the world’s first sparkling vodka. Produced by the International English Distillers and created by Philip Maitland the 80-proof premium vodka’s production process is patented already. It took 18 months to develop the process that puts oxygen bubbles into the smooth tasting vodka to leave a lightly effervescent texture that gently tingles on the tongue. This unique British vodka is produced predominantly from wheat and a small amount of malted barley. Distilled and filtered three times in 100-year-old copper pot stills, for exceptional purity and smoothness.
