Inspired by Innovation
With its launch in San Francisco in 1992, SKYY redefined vodka as the world knew it. We sought to make the perfect martini, and as a result, created an exceptionally smooth vodka.
Since our founding, we’ve always been guided by San Francisco’s forward-thinking mindset and pioneered a state-of-the-art quadruple-distillation and triple-filtration process.
When most vodkas came in clear, Russian-style bottles, SKYY Vodka revolutionized the category with the launch of our iconic cobalt blue bottle.
Now, we’re breaking the mold again. For the first time since our 1992 beginnings, we’re reimagining our gluten-free vodka inside and out. To achieve this, we’ve brought together a diverse team of experts – a water sommelier, chemist and expert bartender – to take our original liquid to new heights.
Where others have chosen to distil out character, we’ve chosen to innovate by giving our liquid a character-adding twist with water enriched by minerals, including Pacific Minerals sourced from the San Francisco Bay Area. This is intended to give our liquid a subtle salinity and minerality and enhance the mouthfeel and fresh taste of our SKYY & Soda with a grapefruit twist, SKYY’s signature pour.
Always quadruple-distilled and triple-filtered- including filtration through California Limestone – SKYY’s new liquid is encapsulated in a beautiful coastal blue bottle inspired by the natural elements of San Francisco.
The result is a smooth, gluten-free, fresher-tasting vodka that not only adds character to any cocktail, but also raises the bar on the vodka & soda.
Driven by Progress
Always true to our progressive beginnings, we’ve not only helped reengineer how vodka is made, we’ve revolutionized what it can stand for.
Since our founding in 1992, SKYY Vodka has embraced the progress and diversity that makes San Francisco our forever hometown and worked hard to spread this spirit around the world. We are and have always been a steadfast ally and advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community and have consistently worked with creative visionaries to produce cutting-edge, thought-provoking advertising campaigns and initiatives that spark essential conversations.
Our support for the rights of LGBTQ people remains steadfast. We continue to live out the spirit of San Francisco and celebrate the diversity that makes life rich and the future bright.
