Best in Beer & Spirits: California
Napa Valley Vodka ($65 for 750 ml)
Now here is a gift to give the liquor nut in your life (perhaps one whom you owe a big favor—this is no cheap vodka). Sweetly sippable with hints of herbs and grass, it reveals its wine-country origins: This extraordinary vodka comes not from potatoes or grain, but from sauvignon blanc grapes harvested from a single vineyard.
Note: Local laws may mean liquor has to be sourced through distributors in some states.
