US demand for potato vodka from Peru
IN recent years Peru has begun to produce vodka out of native potatoes from the southern region of Huancavelica and those in the industry say this has been in high demand from US stores and supermarkets.
The first Peruvian vodka made from Andean native potatoes obtained its sixth international gold medal recently at the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, one of the most important competitions in the United States, the State-run Innovate Peru (Innovate Yourself, Peru) Program has highlighted.
