OYO Vodka is the flagship of Columbus, Ohio’s Middle West Spirits distillery, an operation committed to showcasing the region’s grain through the lens of craft distillation. The grain used for the vodka is local soft red wheat. Sold as a “whiskey lover’s vodka,” the grain character is embraced and not meant to be hidden.

As a result, it is unfiltered after distillation. Bottled at 80 proof. A fun trivia fact: Oyo is the original word for Ohio.

Tasting Notes

"The wheat base is immediately apparent on the nose which shows a complex mix of warm caramel, toasted vanilla, and hot, buttered wheat toast. The palate is mid-bodied and hints at the indulgent flavors nosed before finishing dry with a lingering echo of grain laced with spicy tones of cinnamon. A very tasty and complete drink with several layers of flavor."
