Nadared is, as far as I can tell, the first ever anti-communist vodka ever produced.
No, seriously. It’s nada red — it’s not red. In fact, it’s made here in the U. S. of A. (in Mira Loma, California, actually), and all profits from the sale of this vodka go towards “institutions in oppressive political regions that champion the principles of humanity and individual liberty.”
We try not to get too political here at Drinkhacker — drinkin’ is drinkin’ — so let’s look at Nadared on its merits as a vodka.
Distilled from unspecified grain at 80 proof, this is a traditional vodka with a light medicinal nose, big antiseptic finish, and not much else in between. It’s comparably simple compared to some artisanal vodkas, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find much distinctive about it aside from its anti-oppression mission. The price is tough to beat, though, so no matter what your political leanings are, it’s certainly worth a look.
