NATIONAL RHUBARB VODKA DAY
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.
