Belvedere Vodka represents the pinnacle of the Polish vodka-making tradition. Distilled exclusively from the finest Dankowskie Gold Rye and quadruple distilled to create the perfect balance of character and purity. Completely additive free and diluted with water from Belvedere's own artesian well, this is a vodka that combines over 600 years of vodka producing expertise.
Belvedere is a full and round vodka with medium body and a naturally smooth, rich and velvety texture. Notes of vanilla swaying between sweet and savory and hints of white pepper lead into a lengthy finish with traces of almond and faint Brazil nut characteristics.
Our Vodka is not your ordinary Vodka. We created Bootlegger 21 New York Vodka to be soft on your pallet yet with character not seen in the vodka category. When you bring Bootlegger Vodka to your nose, you’ll sense no smell, and when you take a sip it has flavor yet lacks the usual burn. Bootlegger 21 New York Vodka is made from 100% Corn, which is slowly filtered through a proprietary filtration process using charcoal for over 24 hours to give our silky smooth mouth feel. What most people don’t know is the best way to “taste” a vodka is by touching it. Most vodkas feel oily, but as they dry become sticky due to additives like glycerol and sugar. We’ve taken a higher road with Bootlegger 21 New York Vodka where strict adherance to a proprietary filtration process delivers unparalleled smoothness. It’s not what we do that’s different, but what others don’t do that sets us apart. We’ve taken the time to do it right, and now vodka aficionados are taking notice. -Distiller's Notes
Grey Goose Vodka is made in the town of Gensac-la-Pallue located in the Cognac region of western France. It is distilled in small batches from 100% French wheat cultivated in the rich, fertile soil of Beauce. After the vodka leaves the alembic still, the maître de chai—cellar master—adds artesian spring water to reduce its alcohol content to 40% by volume. The pristine, limestone-filtered water is drawn from the Massif Central Mountains in the Champagne region of Provence. With its wheat coming from the northwest part of the country and the all-important water from the south, Grey Goose is truly a citizen of France.
The brand's meteoric success pays tribute to its crowd-pleasing personality. Grey Goose has a lustrous appearance, a supple, medium-weight body and a delicate bouquet of buttery, pastry-like aromas. It quickly fills the mouth with a warm array of nutty, semisweet flavors before fading into a citrus and spice finish.
With a base of beet sugar, we use a highly tuned fermentation process to create flavors and textures unusual in vodka. We then use a laboratory-grade still - built in-house - to separate out those flavors into 30 different distinct groups (called "cuts"), taste each one, and blend only the best into each batch.
Industry Standard is equally at home in a rocks glass or in a shaker tin. With its unique, yet not overwhelming bouquet, it's an ideal culinary companion as well. From smoked fish and cured salumi to the classic Martini, Industry Standard Vodka is your new standard. -Distiller's Notes
Karlsson's Gold Vodka is a blend of several different varietals of virgin new potatoes from Cape Bjäre, Sweden. It is handcrafted, single-distilled and unfiltered to preserve the flavor and character of this rare and expensive raw ingredient. The varieties of potatoes include solist, gammel svensk röd, princess, sankta thora, hamlet, marine and celine. Each varietal is distilled only once through a continuous column still lined with copper. The varietals are then blended without charcoal filtration, which would remove valuable flavor elements. The resulting vodka is full-bodied and rich, with a distinct viscosity and mouth-feel that is unlike other vodkas on the market today. Although it is designed to be served neat, on the rocks or in a martini, we suggest you also try Karlsson's Gold with fresh cracked black pepper or as a unique base for your favorite cocktail. -Distiller's Notes
Ketel One is a popular phenomenon centuries in the making. The super-premium brand can trace its origin to 1691, when the Nolet family built a distillery in Schiedam, Holland. For 10 generations, the family has been distilling the finest handcrafted spirits using the techniques and recipes perfected by Joannes Nolet and his successors.
Ketel One Vodka is made according to strict quality standards. It is distilled in small batches entirely from select wheat. The final distillation occurs in centuries old, alembic copper pot stills. After distillation, the vodka is rested in tile-lined tanks to allow the spirit to become fully integrated.
The famous brand drinks like a handcrafted vodka. Ketel One Vodka has pristine clarity and a gloriously round, flawlessly textured body. The vodka's subtle yet pleasing bouquet is laced with the aromas of citrus and toasted grain. The pleasure continues as the vodka fills the mouth with layers of sweet and spicy flavors that last long into the elegant finish.
The brand is handcrafted in Borgarnes, Iceland, a strikingly beautiful village graced with some of the cleanest air found on the planet. Reyka (pronounced "Rey-kuh") is distilled in small batches from local grain and lava-filtered, glacial water drawn the Grabok Spring, which when tested was found to contain no impurities. The distillery uses a Carter-Head pot still, the first of its kind employed to distill vodka. Only a small portion of each distillation run is used for production. Prior to being bottled at 40% alcohol (80 proof), the vodka is rendered essentially pure by filtering it through finely crushed lava.
A sniff, sip and swallow will confirm Reyka Vodka is deserving of its critical acclaim. It has pristine clarity, a silky smooth, lightweight body and a subtle floral and herbal nose. The longer the vodka is allowed to breathe, the more aromatic notes come to the forefront. Almost immediately upon entry the vodka begins to expand and fill the mouth with spicy warmth and notes of honey, lavender and raisins. The flavors persist throughout the warm, spicy finish. Reyka is a marvelous vodka experience in all respects.
It's worth noting that the Reyka distillery is powered entirely by steam emanating from the nearby hot springs. The geothermal energy captured from deep within the earth supplies power to the distillery without adding to its carbon footprint. Reyka is an ideal example of how you can produce an extraordinary spirit and not pollute the environment doing it.
In 1997, the former geophysicist, Tito Beveridge, opened the first legal distillery in Texas outside of Austin and began producing Tito's Handmade Vodka in pot stills he builds himself from his own design. Beveridge is one of a growing cadre of American distillers handcrafting world-class vodkas using artisan techniques and micro-distilling technology. While distilling in small batches requires that he invest considerably more time and effort, it affords Beveridge greater control over the process.
There are scores of variables that directly affect the character and taste of a vodka. For example, Tito's Handmade Vodka is made entirely from high-grade corn. But like other commodities used in distillation—grapes and barley malt to sugar cane and blue agave—the quality of corn is subject to such factors as soil composition, the balance between sunny and cloudy days, and the amount of rainfall at the beginning versus the end of the growing season. Change necessitates that Beveridge remain intimately involved in every step of production. He personally examines the grain, tests the water and assesses each batch as it ferments. Beveridge builds his own stills so they can't be replicated by others.
When you get a bottle of Tito's Homemade Vodka, trust that it couldn't be made by anyone else on the planet. Fortunately for mankind, Beveridge has a firm grasp of the tiller. His luxurious, character-laden vodka has a medium-weight, satiny-textured body and a crisp refreshing aroma. Its initial entry is pleasantly warm without a trace of harshness or excess heat before it gradually fades into a slightly sweet finish.
