Our Favorite Mixed Ingredient Vodka Picks

Although some vodkas are made from one ingredient, others use a blend of ingredients to get the balance right. Often grains like rye, wheat, corn, and barley are blended and sometimes other ingredients like potatoes or fruit are used. Here are our top mixed ingredient vodka picks!

    Grain & Spicy
    Purity is made from organic barley and winter wheat. What they make at their distillery in Sweden is the heart of the vodka. There they use a 600-liter copper pot-still which is attached to two column stills, each with eight plates. The mash of winter wheat and barley is distilled through twice creating a spirit which doesn't need filtration. This is blended with an organic column-distilled wheat distillate and two types of water: de-ionized water and mineral-rich water. Bottled at 40% ABV, this vodka is certified organic in the US and the EU.

    Grain & Oily
    Reyka's distillery is located in the town of Bogarnes on the west coast of Iceland. Barley grain spirit (barley and some wheat) is brought to them from Scotland where it is redistilled in a single distillation in a copper-lined Carter-Head still. Each batch produces about 255 cases and takes six hours to complete. The vodka is filtered through lava rock and the water used to bring the vodka to proof is arctic spring water. The distillery is powered by geothermal energy from underground volcanoes and as a result, produces zero emissions.
