Three Olives Vodka

Made from quadruple-distilled winter wheat harvested in England, Three Olives Vodka has been a staple for drinkers since its inception almost 20 years ago. The 80-proof liquor proved to be America's fastest-growing brand when it first hit shelves, and it hasn't slowed down since.

Though the brand might be best known for its full line of flavored vodkas (Cherry and Grape came first, followed by more inventive flavors like Loopy, Tartz, S'mores, Jacked Apple, Bubble, and Purple), it's the flagship, original flavor where everything got started. It's smooth and crisp, perfect in a classic martini.

In fact, the brand is named for that particular cocktail and the luxury it exudes when paired with three plump, juicy olives. Over the years people's tastes have changed, but martinis have never truly gone out of style, and the same goes for Three Olives.
