The New York Times reports on LiV, or Long Island Vodka, which will be released in a month. They're making the product from locally-grown potatoes; "the Long Island variety known as Marcy, which was originally developed for making potato chips."
Hamptons Vodka is also made on Long Island, but from Minnesota corn.
