Blaum Bros. Hellfyre Vodka
Blaum Bros. // Illinois, USA
Blaum Bros is a craft distillery housed in Galena, Illinois. A true artisanal affair, the brothers use only local grains that are milled and fermented on location. Hellfyre (sic) is created by macerating jalapeños, habaneros, and black peppercorn in their very competent vodka. The vodka is made of wheat and rye and a return to a historic grain-focused style.
Flavored VodkaDistilled from any agricultural product. It will be labeled with the (pre)dominant flavor(s) listed and can be artificially or naturally flavored.
"The nose on this infused vodka shows a lovely range of peppers from green capsicum to toasted jalapeño. The initial taste is quite similar to their standard vodka with hints of vanilla and toasted wheat, but the finish affirms its name with building flavors of spice and quite a bit of heat. Of course a bloody mary would be a no-brainer, but not for the feint of heart. Fruit juices or citrus make a nice foil to the peppery heat."
