As the name implies, this is a vodka crafted from local Florida sugarcane in St. Augustine. The distillery is community owned and operated and call’s Florida’s oldest ice factory its home. Unlike larger vodka manufacturers the distilling cuts are made by hand and not by computer formulation.
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 sugarcane base imposes a pleasant confectionary character of vanilla custard and yellow cake to this tasty vodka. The palate has very good weight and fills the mouth with its slightly sweet but neutral flavors. The finish is pure and strong with very little impression of alcohol. A very competent vodka that would be a perfect fit in many cocktails."
