According to The Fifty Best, Louisiana’s Oryza Vodka is one of the best in the country.

The online guide to fine living features rated listings from wine and spirits journalists, professionals and mixologists. In a new ranking of the best domestic vodkas, The Fifty Best awarded Oryza with the highest rating—a double gold medal. Oryza was one of six vodkas to get the double gold, and the only Louisiana product featured on the list.

Oryza is distilled in Thibodaux by Donner-Peltier Distilleries, which also makes Oryza Gin, LA1 whiskey and Rougaroux rums. Last year, Oryza received a gold medal from The Fifty Best. The vodka is one of two in the nation that is distilled from rice.
