Sip this Aermoor Vodka

The world’s first cloud-sourced vodka is made on Hilton Head Island. The team at Hilton Head Distillery uses a fancy atmospheric water generator to pull water vapors out of the island’s humid air. Those vapors are then filtered and collected, resulting in one of the purest forms of water you can find on the planet. That pure water is used to proof this 80-proof vodka, which is hand-crafted from a granulated molasses base and distilled 49 times. Find it at most local liquor stores.
