The Russians have got nothing on this new Southern vodka. Inspired by their Delta Blues roots, Cathead Vodka aims to support music interest groups via the sale of their delicious libation. In addition to Mississippi, the vodka is now available in Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, South Carolina and Virginia.

Cathead Vodka is the first legally distilled spirit in the state of Mississippi. The corn-based 80 proof alcohol is a six-times distilled and charcoal-filtered artisan vodka produced by Bottle Tree Beverage Company at their Gluckstadt, Miss. distillery. The name stems from a loose reference across the Mississippi Delta region for blues musicians – Cat Heads. As part of their common interest in preserving and protecting the cultural history of southern food, beverages, music and the arts, they established a partnership with Music Maker Relief Foundation (MMRF) where $1 from every bottle of Cathead Vodka sold will go directly to the non-profit organization.

Here in Atlanta, Cathead Vodka can be purchased at Green’s Package, Tower Package Little 5 Package, Sherlock’s, Tower East, Empire Package, Capital City Bottle Shop, Holiday Wine and Spirits, Mac’s Beer and Wine and Peachtree Road Liquor Store. Check out these recipes perfect for sipping on a hot summer night.

1 oz Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka
