GRASS VALLEY, Calif., Sept. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- South Fork Vodka has been awarded Best Craft Vodka Distillery by USA Today through their 2021 10Best Reader's Choice Awards. The prestigious award, selected by a panel of experts and voted upon by thousands of contributors, solidifies South Fork Vodka's position as a leading craft spirit.
Launched in September 2018, South Fork Vodka has grown from a local Northern California brand to one of the most awarded and highest rated vodkas in the Country. Crafted in small batches and inspired by one of Northern California's most iconic bodies of water, the South Fork of the Yuba River, this premium vodka is an homage to the region where the co-founders were raised. Distilled six times from GMO-free American corn, produced with Sierra Nevada mountain spring water, and ultra-refined through a small batch finishing method, South Fork Vodka offers a truly unique taste experience.
"We couldn't be more proud to be recognized as the Best Craft Vodka distillery in the Country. We are a family-owned operation working tirelessly to raise the bar of premium vodka. This really means the world to us," said Dan Kennerson, President of South Fork Vodka. "We have to thank our local businesses, fans, and friends who have supported us from the beginning and who made this award a reality. This recognition simply wouldn't be possible without them."

Double Gold Medal - Bartender Spirits Awards
2020 Vodka of the Year - Bartender Spirits Awards
