About Tahoe Blue Vodka
Situated along the border between California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America, and the second deepest lake in the United States. It is known for its pure, natural blue water; while Lake Tahoe is served by 63 tributaries, approximately half of the water in the lake is sourced from rainwater falling directly upon it.
"We wanted to create something that had the clear, pristine and natural quality of Lake Tahoe," says Matt Levitt, the founder of Tahoe Blue Vodka. "Our main focus was balancing the natural resources of the area and creating a vodka without any bite or lingering aftertaste."
Tahoe Blue Vodka is composed of three unique vodkas that are expertly blended together in order to create a singular vodka that is remarkably smooth and flavorful. The first vodka, which comprises 50% of the blend, is distilled from sugarcane and adds a touch of sweet minerals and apricots to Tahoe Blue. The second vodka, which comprises approximately 25% of the blend, is distilled from grapes and adds bursts of tart sweetness and sublime notes of citrus. Finally, the third vodka, which comprises the remainder of the blend, is distilled from gluten-free corn and adds notes of saltines and a touch of roasted nuts.
Once each vodka is distilled individually, the vodkas are blended together and then distilled twice more in order to ensure that the flavors have harmonized with each other. Then, the vodka is carbon-filtered before each bottle is filled and labeled by hand at the California distillery.
Tahoe Blue Vodka earned the Chairman's Trophy and was rated the #1 Vodka at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge in 2013. Pick up a bottle today!
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.
