Material Wants

W’s associate editor reveals his drink of choice.

Material Vodka

Material Vodka was just launched by Pati Hertling and Thyamaya Payne, who are not rapper-moguls but a curator and a documentary filmmaker, respectively. A portion of each bottle sold—you can get it at art world strongholds like the downtown New York eateries Dimes and Lucien—goes to a fund for artist grants. And it’s decent stuff—I certainly sampled enough of it last night, and these words seem to appear in an order that meets some moderate standard of coherence. Right?
