As a group of people who pride ourselves on making truly unique spirits, it seemed a compromise of our values to make vodka. Vodka is, by definition, neutral; nothing else we make is even remotely subtle, much less neutral. However, the challenge proved too much to resist, so we started experimenting. The result is a surprise on the palate and a delight in cocktails.
Production: Our vodka is made from the same base as all of our grain-based spirits — 45% barley, 30% corn, 25% rye — distilled to at least 190 proof through our stainless still two-column vodka still. Careful and controlled distillation result in a gorgeous, smooth vodka with a lingering sweetness.
Nose: Mostly neutral, but with fruity esters, a hint of pepper, and gentle sweet notes.
Palate: An intricate interplay of pepper and confectionary spice, sweet pastry, and mineral notes.
