Distilled from certified organic wheat, this vodka is column-distilled. It is then placed in virgin white American oak for 12-48 months. After that, it is then re-distilled three times in copper pot-stills. Post-distillation, it goes through a stabilization and aeration period for 3-6 months. Finally, it is bottled without carbon or chill-filtration nor with any additives or color correcting.

Tasting Notes

"There's a moderately-heavy spiced note on the nose along with some hazelnuts. The initial feeling on the palate is soft and sweet, but that quickly turns dry and sharp. More cinnamon and nutty flavors follow, albeit mildly. This is a savory and spiced vodka, and you might be accustomed to the flavor if you have ever had white whiskey. Would recommend sipping neat at room temp or chilled for maximum effect."
