On Saturday, July 22, 2017, Channing Tatum made headlines for hand-delivering his own vodka, Born and Bred, to unsuspecting Saucey customers. But how good is his vodka? We set out to taste what the hype was all about, and we are happy to report that it is pretty much the best vodka we’ve ever tried.
Damn Smooth Taste
“Born and Bred is 20 times distilled in small batches using local Idaho potatoes and glacial water from the Grand Teton Mountains. Every batch is handcrafted and charcoal-filtered for a damn smooth taste.” While we lack expertise in potatoes, we do, however, pride ourselves on finding the best possible liquors around. So we can all agree on this: Born and Bred vodka has a damn smooth taste.
Distilled 20 Times
Let’s look at the facts here; compared to prominent vodka brands like Tito’s and Grey Goose, which are respectively distilled only six and five times, Tatum’s Born and Bred is distilled a whopping amount more. Although 20 times may seem like a lot, we say, why fix what’s not broken? Tatum explains his reasoning for choosing the Grand Teton Distillery, saying,
“It just tasted better, different than any vodka that was on the top shelf. There was a smooth taste to it, like a cool feeling in your mouth. The aftertaste doesn’t burn. That’s the difference.”
40% Alcohol Volume
With 40 percent alcohol by volume, we think Tatum got it just right, making a vodka that tastes smoother and goes down much, much easier (sign me up for 4 more bottles, please).
