Organic Vodka from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado
“Vodka 14 boasts a USDA Organic certification, distinguishing it from virtually all other top-shelf vodkas. What makes a vodka organic, and why this matters, cuts to the heart of Vodka 14’s remarkable smoothness and taste.
Organic foods are grown in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner. We are exceedingly proud to buy the grain we craft into Vodka 14 from individual American farmers committed to sustainability, but the “greenness” of organic ingredients is only half the story. Using grain grown without pesticides, genetic modification, or chemical fertilizers serves our commitment to environmental stewardship but it also serves our quest to produce the finest vodka. Chemicals and pesticides applied in the field can remain with the grain all the way through distillation, tainting the final product. Using grain free of chemical agents ensures the purest vodka possible.
The other half of this equation is the purest water. We draw ours from a spring fed by the Snake River aquifer at the foot of the Teton Range, running ice-cold with snowmelt from high in the Rockies. In keeping with the commitment to purity assured by the USDA Organic seal, we forgo all chemical “blending agents” and other common additives as we mix our grain and our water, and even forgo using chemical cleaners in our still. Going to great lengths to eliminate even the most minute traces of chemical residues and additives is what sets Vodka 14 apart, and plays no small part in the remarkable taste of the final product. This commitment to purity from the farm to the bottle is backed up by stringent federal inspection, as the USDA Organic standards are defined by strictly enforced law, not marketing hype, making the USDA Organic Certification the highest legal benchmark of purity for a beverage. Our obsession with the purity of our ingredients results in a vodka that is absolutely free from contaminants of any kind, and offers a taste unlike any other.” http://www.vodka14.com/home.html
