SKYY Vodka originated in San Francisco in 1988 when Maurice Kanbar, entrepreneur & inventor, developed an innovative method of production capable of yielding a vodka with the fewest impurities possible
Kanbar was inspired to create SKYY Vodka after suffering from headaches brought on by after dinner cocktails. Curious, he investigated the matter & discovered the common cause of drink related headaches: Congeners.
Congeners are by-products of distillation. They give colour, flavour & bouquet & are present in clear spirits to a lesser degree than in coloured, or brown, ones. However, even relatively small amounts of congeners may irritate the body & cause side effects like headaches.
The name, SKYY and the cobalt blue bottle, a first in the spirits industry were inspired by the clear, bright blue San Francisco sky.
Following its launch in 1992, SKYY Vodka emerged overnight as the hottest vodka brand in the U.S.
