Skyy Vodka was birthed only 22 years ago in California. This liquor's creators held that anything can be improved with a little fresh thinking – vodka included. So they set about making a super smooth vodka, the result of which is Skyy.

In the years that have followed, Skyy has turned the spirits industry on its head. It's quadruple-distillation and triple-filtration process turn the finest, most simple ingredients – namely American grain and 100 percent pure filtered water – into a delicious and exceptionally smooth vodka that's unrivaled in quality and taste.

Other than just being ridiculously good vodka, the Skyy brand prides itself on being a versatile spirit that mixes well with anything from a simple mixer to a complex cocktail.
