Best last-minute Christmas gift for the Midwest-locavore lush in your life

The only problem with recommending a colorless, flavorless liquor is that it’s hard to take that terroir argument very far. You can, I think, argue that it didn’t have to travel very far in petroleum-fueled vehicles to get it to your favorite ethical Wisconsin-resident lush.

The only other problem is that I can’t tell you if it’s good, because I’m a vodka Philistine. It’s good with grapefruit juice and a lemon peel, I can tell you that much. That’s why the bottle is empty.

Midwest Vodka. Grain-distilled at a family-run distillery in New Richmond, Wisc., says the label.
