COMPLEX FLORAL AROMA IS ALWAYS WORTH THE TROUBLE
We fell in love with the aroma of California’s mandarin orange trees, but when we tried distilling the fruit, the acids in the juice wouldn’t cooperate. After plenty of late nights tinkering around in our hangar, we decided: let’s try the flowers instead! Since we only pick at the height of bloom, we’re constantly battling time and the elements. The result is more than worth it - a beautiful, aromatic vodka that is bright, clean and packed with citrus.

MEET OUR HEAD DISTILLER
Caley oversees all phases of our production. Not to mention, she is one of only a handful of female distillers to lead operations for a major American spirit brand. Caley got her start in craft spirits distilling at Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey, where she immersed herself in every aspect of the production process, from the sourcing of raw ingredients to distillation and bottling. Caley describes herself as a “spirits nerd” and is fascinated by how the chemistry of distilling affects the quality, texture and flavor of the final product. She is endlessly inspired by the area’s abundant seasonal ingredients. When she’s not visiting local farmers’ markets, Caley can be found honing her photography skills or experimenting with new recipes.
We only source ingredients when the season is just right. It’s how we produce the freshest tasting vodka.
Wine Enthusiast 97 points - The deep, sweet orange and honeyed-floral fragrance is the first signal this vodka will be special. The flavors are clean and brisk, followed by a strong bite and honey and tangerine notes. It finishes sweet, with faint floral and vanilla notes coaxed out over ice. (Oct 2010)
