About Cirka Chili Vodka
Founded in 2014 by Paul Cirka, Circa Distilleries' goal is to craft Canadian whisky. As is often the case with younger craft distilleries, Cirka has been making several clear spirits while waiting for the whisky to mature. The artisanal distillery is located in Montreal, where they employ sustainable practices, relying on local suppliers. This means that local grains, botanicals, and pure water are used in the production process.
Cirka is the first grain-to-bottle distillery in Quebec as well as one of the first of its kind in Canada. Their whisky has seen 3 small-batch releases thus far: the Premier Whisky, Whisky No2, and Whisky No3. The clear spirits include the Gin Sauvage, Gin375 Digestif, and Gin Navy Strength, along with Vodka Terroir and Chili Vodka. These expressions have garnered several of the most prestigious international awards since the company's inception in 2014.
Chili Vodka is crafted with 100% Quebec corn and bottled at 80 proof. It's the perfect vodka for lovers of anything spicy, as it employs a secret blend of chili peppers from Turkey, Peru, and Mexico. The spirit is bold with smoky and tropical fruit notes, along with an intense heat from the hot peppers.

Historians are not clear on the exact origin of vodka since different sources link its beginning to both Russia and Poland. But one thing is clear: this somewhat simple spirit, first used as a medicinal concoction, has become one of the most versatile drinks in the world.
It can be distilled from any type of grains, potatoes, or even grapes worldwide. Due to its simplicity, this unaged spirit's main flavor factor is the quality of water and the ingredients used in the distillation process.
Primarily used in cocktails, vodka can also stand its ground when enjoyed neat.
