We’ve known celebrities and big names starting their own liquor line but have you heard of a fast-food chain releasing their very own vodka? With America’s obsession with french fries, Arby’s takes it to the next level by releasing limited edition french fry-flavored vodka.
Here’s everything you should know before taking a shot of Arby’s vodka – price, ingredients, and production process.
All About Arby’s Vodka
Arby’s is an American fast-food chain known for its sandwiches and french fries, and in 2021, the fast-food sandwich chain decided to go for a booze venture and released two french fry spirits.
That makes sense because vodka is a potato-based liquor, and Arby’s famous crinkly fry and curly fry are made from potatoes.
How It’s Made
According to Arby’s, both spirits are made from potato vodka. The Curly Fry vodka is distilled with cayenne, paprika, onion, and garlic, while the Crinkle Fry vodka is made with kosher salt and sugar. Tattersall Distilling in Minneapolis crafted the vodka .
Arby’s Crinkle Fry vodka and Curly Fry vodka are made from high-quality potatoes, and Arby’s fans are going crazy over the limited edition vodka. Arby mastered the art of drive-thru fries and wanted to take another step by making them 80-proof.
The potato-based liquor (available in limited quantities) is infused with curly and crinkle fry so Arby’s fans of legal drinking age can responsibly enjoy their menu from bag to bottle.
