Covington gourmet vodka is handmade locally in rural eastern North Carolina, from seedling to bottling. It’s expertly crafted in small batches using a combination of traditional and modern distilling practices. As it turns out, sweet potatoes (ipomoea batatas) make an excellent vodka — and why not — folks have been making potato vodka for the past 300 years. Sweet potatoes are marketed based on their size and shape. Ugly sweet potatoes, for lack of a better description, that farmers can’t find orders for are considered to be waste even though they are good and definitely usable.
The coloration is uniformly clear. Its smell is mild and pleasant, nearing toward marshmallow with an earthiness that grounds it. It’s smooth and has some interesting undertones.
This degree of artisanal quality is a rare find in an age of over-hyped
packaging and celebrity endorsements — it is certainly never found in ordinary
mass-produced vodka at any price.

The process as it relates to the Covington process is described as "farm-to-bottle.”
Farm-to-bottle falls right in line these days with the ever-growing farm-to-table movement in the food industry.
More people today want to have a connection with the farmers who grow the food they consume.
Approximately 20 pounds of sweet potatoes are needed to create one 750 ml bottle of Covington vodka. It’s a gluten-free product, Heafy touts, and certified as kosher.
