Note about the above liquors from a representative at the plant:
“Of the three alcohols we make as base spirits for the bottled products you may have seen on our website, the Uber-tuber® Idaho russet potato and the Grain-ola® Idaho wheat and corn alcohol are entirely sourced from southern or south-eastern Idaho agricultural areas. Of course our factory is 8 miles north of Idaho Falls.”

Spanish Valley Vineyards in Moab does claim to grow its own grapes for its wine--

I believe a few people brought this up at the meeting. But, yay! Utah wines!

Is anyone planning on making a run to Native Wines before the challenge begins? I have no access to a car and would be happy to compensate for gas if necessary.

Unfortunately we already got our wine from Native Wines or we would offer to pick some up for others, but we do highly recommend it if you are adventurous with your drinking. We just finished off the rhubarb and also enjoyed the forgotten apple. The man who owns the winery is incredibly nice and you can try all of the wines before you buy. But only go down on Saturdays since that is the only day they are open.

Grand Teton Brewing makes Workhouse ale which they said contains southern Idaho hops and barley. Workhorse can be purchased at the Smith's liquor store in Evanston as well as several locations in Pocatello.

There are at least two Vodkas made with Idaho potatoes, one, Teton Glacier is sourced from southern Idaho, in the 250 zone, it is available at many UDABC State liquor stores. I don't know the source for Blue Ice, the other.
