You know that old saying that beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy? That's how I feel about Vodka! I love that it mixes with everything and I don't get a headache from it! Naturally, I was thrilled when Leaf asked me to try their amazing vodkas.
Leaf Vodka believes that better water makes better vodka and I think they're on to something! Leaf crafts its vodka based on the idea that the water source imparts a unique spirit in the vodka - for example, the water of an Alaskan glacier gives their vodka a smooth, pure taste. Water from the Rocky Mountains adds richness and complexity. With hundreds of vodkas to chose from, Leaf tries to get you to appreciate the distinguishing characteristics of the vodka.
Leaf's green-labeled bottle is made from Alaskan glacial water. The glaciers wind their way down the mountains to Alaska's Blue Lake. The water in Blue Lake is so pure that it doesn't need filtering! It's their water that is paired with organic wheat, then distilled five times to round out the finish and character. The smooth taste and a hint of sweetness is the end result found in Leaf's bottle with the green label.
Leaf's blue label vodka uses water that has spent years trickling down the stony layers of the Rocky Mountains. This water maintains the pure essence of its source and is quite bold. The silky finish on this vodka follows a warm, savory impression.
This was the first time for me trying either of these vodkas, but I can assure you that it won't be my last! More information can be found at Leaf Vodka's website.
