How We Got Fuzzy in the First Place

Fuzzy’s Premium Vodka has been making a splash in the spirits industry since 2009. But how’d it all come to be? Let’s take a look at how we got fuzzy in the first place.


Fuzzy Zoeller

Frank Urban Zoeller, better known as “Fuzzy” Zoeller, is a legendary professional golfer with many a championship to his name. During his time on the PGA Tour, Fuzzy took home ten major wins including the 1979 Masters and the 1984 US Open. Fuzzy also gained a reputation for his charismatic and outgoing personality. In fact, his wins at the 1985 and 1986 Skins Games actually brought more exposure to the competition and increased television ratings.

More recently, Fuzzy has had great success on the Champions Tour. He won both the 2002 Senior PGA Championship and well as the 2002 Senior Slam Championship. Fuzzy’s wins also include the 2003 Tylenol Shoot Out, the 2004 MasterCard Championship and the 2007 Senior Skins with his partner, Peter Jacobsen. Fuzzy continues to play on the Champions Tour and is still known for his shining personality on and off the course.

Other successes to Fuzzy’s name include his designing of nineteen golf courses, three of which host PGA Tour events. He is the recipient of the 1985 Bobby Jones Award for his sportsmanship and charity, and the 2010 Dave Marr award for his commitment to bettering the game of golf.

And let’s not forget – he launched Fuzzy’s Premium Vodka!


Fuzzy’s Premium Vodka

Fuzzy’s drink of choice has always been a vodka tonic, and he spent four years perfecting his own version before jumping into the spirits industry. In 2009, Fuzzy’s Premium Vodka was launched and quickly gained popularity. His vodka is distilled five times from American corn and then filtered ten times through charcoal and lava. A portion of the distillate is then rested in new oak barrels, and the process is finished with the addition of pure Cascade Mountain spring water.

Sounds great, right? The critics agree. Fuzzy’s Premium Vodka has received a 94 rating from the Beverage Testing Institute and a 92 in the Ultimate Spirits Challenge.

It’s safe to say that accomplishing greatness is one of Fuzzy’s specialties. Try a swig of Fuzzy’s Premium Vodka today and see for yourself!
