Pennsylvania Pure Distilleries announced the 10th Anniversary of its multiple award-winning spirit, Boyd & Blair Potato Vodka. In commemoration of this milestone, the distillery has released limited edition 10th Anniversary bottles paying homage to the Pittsburgh skyline and celebrating the birthplace of the craft spirit.
Launched in 2008, Pennsylvania Pure Distilleries was only the second distillery to open in Pennsylvania since Prohibition, and Boyd & Blair Potato Vodka was one of the first hand-distilled potato vodkas in the country. Over the past decade, the spirit has greatly expanded its reach and is now available in more than 2,300 upscale cocktail lounges, liquor stores and fine restaurants. It is currently sold in 41 states, plus Singapore , Hong Kong , Alberta Canada and France.
In the past ten years, Boyd & Blair has garnered numerous accolades including 5-star ratings from Spirit Journal, who also rated the spirit the top vodka in the world and the 22nd best spirit in the world three times. The spirit also boasts two 95 ratings from the Ultimate Spirits Challenge and a Gold Medal from the Good Food Awards in 2013. Additional milestones include being named to the Marriott beverage list of approved spirits and winning gold twice at the Craft Spirits Competition. Young initially set out to make a spirit that would get noticed and, needless to say, he has accomplished that with Boyd & Blair.
