Hanson of Sonoma Original Vodka
Hanson of Sonoma // California, USA
Based in California’s Sonoma County, Hanson makes its vodka using organic grapes from the area. This Sonoma wine is then distilled on a combination pot still and fifty-plate column still to create the spirit. The vodka is not only organic, but it is also non-GMO and gluten free.
Unflavored VodkaDistilled from any agricultural product, most commonly grains or potatoes. Typically distilled to 95% ABV. Water is added to bring the spirit down to as low as 37.5% ABV in the EU and 40% ABV in the US. It is usually filtered, often with charcoal, prior to bottling. It is almost always clear and unaged.
"The grape base of this vodka is immediately present on the nose which shows a heady mixture of stone fruits and warm soil. The palate echoes the vinus flavors with a touch of sweet concord, wild raspberry, and baked plum. There is an admirable richness and the finish is smooth with a touch of lingering fruit. Great with juice mixers."
