Full Answer

Everclear is distributed by American Spirits. It is included in a high-proof alcohol ban in 15 different states, and one more pending as of June 2014. Everclear is made by the distillation of neutral grain spirits, just as vodka is. The difference is that Everclear is distilled further to remove all of the water from the liquor to achieve a much higher alcohol percentage. This makes it a much more alcoholic drink than other brands of liquor.
