Until man figures out how to turn water into wine, New Zealand dairy farmers have come up with a way to turn cow's milk into vodka.

Set to hit liquor store shelves across the U.S. this winter, Milk Money Vodka is twice distilled from milk and twice filtered for an end product described as a "full-bodied light cream taste."

At 40% alcohol by volume or ABV, the liquor is said to end with a "sweet clean finish" and is gluten-free.

Interestingly, the product's target market is females within the agricultural community ages 21 to 45, says Leche Spirits.

The product will debut in New Mexico and Colorado in the next few weeks, followed by other Midwestern states including Wisconsin, Nebraska and Minnesota.

Meanwhile, it's not the first time farmers have tried to turn cow's milk into vodka. When Black Cow Vodka was launched out of Dorset, England last year, the spirit was touted as a world first. Made from the whey of cow's milk, the premium vodka is sold at high-end U.K. retailer Selfridges.

Meanwhile, instead of the traditional potatoes or grains, Ciroc vodka - peddled by rapper Diddy - is made from French grapes.

A 750-ml bottle of Milk Money Vodka retails for $19.99.
