French vodka about to make its move

Dragon Bleu, the triple-grain French vodka, doesn't seem to be in much hurry to makes its way into cocktail glasses across America.

While it is featured in numerous top-echelon watering holes in Europe, and has picked up silver medals at several prestigious international competitions, it is marketed in all but 49 of the United States.

That's right, it is sold in precisely one state. Michigan; 400 locations in Michigan, as a matter of fact.

However, that should be remedied in the coming months. Dragon Bleu is about to be rolled out to markets around the nation, according to the company.

The vodka is made from wheat, barley, rye and water from the Gensac Spring in the southwestern French province of Aquitane. Dragon Bleu was founded by Patrick Brissett, president of the International Centre for Spirits and Liqueurs. It retails at a suggested $32 for the 750ml bottle.
