    The 2021 refresh of this vodka was created in concert with a collective of experts including chemists, professional bartenders, and a water sommelier to achieve the final product. The effect is meant to evoke the naturally occurring salinity and minerality of the waters surrounding its home town of San Francisco, made with vodka + soda drinkers in mind.
