A professor at Iowa State has created a vodka that won’t leave you a useless sack of shit the following day. Professor and bioengineer Johannes Van Leeuwen claims to have developed the first ever 100 percent pure vodka.
From the Globe Gazette:
The appeal of a vodka with no impurities is that it’s allegedly of better quality, smoother and less likely to cause a hangover, said Astor, who has been in alcoholic beverage sales for 28 years.
For comparison, Smirnoff has eight impurities, Absolute has 16 and Grey Goose has 14, according to tests conducted at Iowa State University.
The process uses Iowa-grown corn, so it’s safe to say that there won’t be a shortage of product in the foreseeable future. The company, OZ Spirits, also researched and developed the cleanest possible bottle to keep with the non-impurities theme.
The stuff is called IngeniOz, and it hit Iowa liquor store shelves about a month ago for $24 a bottle. No clue what it tastes like, but it’s purer than Grey Goose and about half the price. Probably something to check out for the good folks in Ames.
OZ Spirits is also looking to expand distribution to Minnesota and Illinois. Seems like a good enough time to do so–it is Big Ten football season, after all.
