Situated in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains, the town of Rigby, Idaho is best known as the birthplace of television. In 1923, Philo Taylor Farnsworth created the blueprints for the first television set while a student at Rigby High School. Today, just a few miles down the street from Rigby High, Bill Scott — 44° North's Master Distiller — is hard at work crafting another batch of 44° North Vodka.

Distilled exclusively from Idaho Russet Burbank potatoes, 44° North Rainier Cherry Vodka and 44° North Mountain Huckleberry Vodka are the first vodkas ever approved to wear the Idaho Potato Commission's official seal of approval. Once the locally-sourced potatoes are brought to the distillery, Scott mashes and ferments them before distilling the wash through his five-column, multi-plate copper still. The potatoes, which contain unusually high levels of antioxidants and sugars, give the vodka its smooth, silky texture.

In order to produce 44° North Rainier Cherry Vodka, Scott steeps the vodka he distills in fresh rainier cherries he sources from local farmers in Idaho. The cherries, which have thin skins and a thick, creamy-yellow flesh, are incredibly sensitive to temperatures and as a result, can only be harvested in June and July. The cherries impart a tart, sweet flavor to the vodka, and give it a hint of acidity.

In order to produce 44° North Mountain Huckleberry Vodka, Scott steeps the the vodka he distills in natural mountain huckleberries for ten days (huckleberries are Idaho's official state fruit). The huckleberries impart a slightly candied aroma to the vodka, and contribute a blueberry-like, tart sourness to the finish. 44° North Mountain Huckleberry Vodka earned a score of 90-95 points from Wine Enthusiast and was named "a perfect sipping vodka when chilled"by The Luxist.

Once 44° North Rainier Cherry and 44° North Mountain Huckleberry have been steeped in cherries and huckleberries, respectively, each vodka is brought to proof with water from the Snake River and then bottled by hand. 44° North Vodka is not only made in Idaho, but also represents the very best of what Idaho agriculture has to offer.
