“Vodka is vegan”

“Vodka is vegan” is a saying that has been printed on many images. The saying became popular in the 2000s.
“Thank god Grey Goose Vodka is vegan” was posted on Twitter by John Eckman on January 27, 2008. “Paige just gave me my xmas gift its a flask that says vodka is vegan!!! In NYC!!!” was posted on Twitter by Susan Bernstein on May 2, 2009. “i want one of those ‘vodka is vegan’ shirts i keep seeing everywhere” was posted on Twitter by Randall on July 23, 2016.
The book Vodka Is Vegan: A manifesto for better living and not being an a**hole (2018) by Phil Letten and Matt Letten popularized the saying, but did not coin it.
Wikipedia: Vodka
Vodka (Polish: wódka [ˈvutka], Russian: водка [ˈvotkə], Swedish: vodka [vɔdkɑː]) is a clear distilled alcoholic beverage with different varieties originating in Poland, Russia and Sweden. It is composed primarily of water and ethanol, but sometimes with traces of impurities and flavorings. Traditionally it is made by distilling the liquid from cereal grains that have been fermented, with potatoes arising as a substitute in more recent times, and some modern brands using fruits as the base.
Vegan Liquors
Some rums and whiskeys contain honey, but when that’s the case it’s usually part of the product’s name. Pretty much any liquor that’s translucent and doesn’t contain honey will be vegan.
Bourbon (usually made in Kentucky)
Canadian Whisky
Irish Whiskey
Schnapps (Oh, God)
Scotch Whisky
Tennessee Whiskey

“Meet the bros who are making vegan sexy (and making eating animals weird) Think you could never go vegan? Think again. As this smart, funny and persuasive manifesto makes clear, you’re already 90% vegan anyway. That’s right—you already love animals and are slowly but surely eating less meat than you used to. With the insider tips and inspiring stories in this book, you’ll be ready to go whole hog (see what we did there?) and eat vegan for good. Topics include: *How eating meat hurts your health and the planet (and is pretty close to eating your beloved pet for dinner) *A simple action plan for getting started *Don’t Be an A**hole to Your Server, and other secrets for eating out *Who Cares If Honey Is Vegan?: Getting over perfectionism and purity by eating as cruelty-free as you can With a loyal online following that’s growing fast, the Bros are the new face of veganism—loud, proud, and fighting for a better world, one plate at a time”—
