Vodka - Grain
This is a Tier 1 score in the Vodka category. It means the spirit has won the highest recommendation at least once and probably many times.
360 Vodka considers itself to be "eco-friendly." They claim to use chlorine free paper, 85% recycled glass bottles, and with a variety of other efforts claim (as of March 2009) to have saved 193 fully grown trees, 82,766 gallons of water, 9,225 pounds of solid waste, 139 million BTU, and 18,052 pounds of greenhouse gas. We don't know if this is impressive because we don't know how much would've been saved had 360 Vodka never been produced at all but at least if you drink vodka you can drink 360 and feel you've dampened your drunken carbon footprint. I tis produced by the McCormick Distilling Company of Missouri.
They've also launched an effort to plant indigenous trees on the 40 acres surrounding the McCormick Distillery called: "Forest 360."
