Created by Chef Peter X. Kelly and his team to be “the culinary vodka,” the perfect vodka for pairing with exquisite dishes; for use in the creation of these dishes; and for the creation of the most dramatic cocktails by chef mixologists.

Sommelier Billy Rattner: “First impression of ample aromatics offer pure floral, lemongrass hints with strong sweet wheat/cereal top notes.

Mouthfeel provides; a deliciously complete palate that is plush and almost viscous; quite round and smooth; the faintest elements of exotic lingonberry and soft anise-seed arise in the mouth; the spirit impresses with a velvety, driven purity.”
