About DSP CA 162 Citron Vodka
Citrus medica var sarcodactylis, also known as the fingered citron, is a uniquely shaped citrus fruit, segmented into finger-like sections, remotely resembling a human hand. Native to South East Asia, it is commonly referred to in Chinese as Buddha's hand, as well as in Japanese, and Korean.
DSP CA 162 Citron, from the beautifully fragrant Buddha’s Hand, is crafted using a maceration technique. Sourced from California, the Buddha's hand undergoes a powerful maceration before it’s re-introduced to the spirit. The Citrus Medica fruit, according to Coale, is extremely ideal for maceration, and distillation, due to is lack of juices, which tend to oxidize. Buddha's Hand also yields a milder citrus flavor than the typical lemon infused vodka. Distilled by Crispin and Devin Cain, this infused vodka is has light lemon flavors, followed by a long smooth finish.
