NATIONAL RHUBARB VODKA DAY – First Saturday in December

Rhubarb Vodka


The registrar of National Day Calendar has designated the first Saturday in December of each year as National Rhubarb Vodka Day.  This day celebrates the unique tartness that Rhubarb gives to Vodka.

Rhubarb Vodka was  originally introduced in the United States of America in 2010 by Maple River Distillery in historic downtown Casselton, North Dakota.  Rhubarb is a local favorite so the idea was born to infuse Rhubarb into Vodka.  The idea was an instant hit and has become a popular distilled beverage across the USA.

  • Rhubarb, although known as a tart fruit to most, is actually a vegetable.   It was decided in a New York court in 1947 that since rhubarb was used in the United States as a fruit, that it was to be counted as a fruit for the purposes of regulations and duties.

Based on the popularity of  Rhubarb Vodka and its quick rise as a popular beverage,  the registrar at National Day Calendar has declared the 1st Saturday in December as National Rhubarb Vodka Day.


National Day Calendar has fun, unusual and sometimes forgotten designations on it’s calendar along with daily posts, a video greeting widget, facebook, twitter updates, National Day registration availability, and much more.  For more information, go to: or
