3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Founded in 1983, Charbay Distillery & Winery is owned and managed by Master Distiller Miles Karakasevic, his wife Susan, their son Marko and his wife, Jenni. The Karakasevics are considered pioneers in the American artisan distillery movement not surprising, when you realize that the family comes from a long line of distillers dating back to 1751 in the former Yugoslavia. In 2009, Marko became the family’s 13th generation of Master Distillers to work in the business. Based in Napa Valley, the distillery is located on Spring Mountain above St. Helena, California. They produce a range of vodkas and spirits distilled in their Alambic Charentais Pot Still. Charbay released its first fruit flavored vodka in 1998 and Marko was promptly named a “Vodka Visionary by Food & Wine Magazine. All of their fruit based vodkas are made with 100% organically grown fruit.

Tasting notes
The vodka is cut with ultra-pure water (only 3PPM) to preserve its silky texture and clean, precise finish.

Rating
 Wine Enthusiast 96 points (Jun 2006)
Opening nosing passes detect subtle toasty, charcoal aromas. Entry is off-dry to sweet and properly oily; sweet graininess dominates the midpalate. Aftertaste is long, bittersweet and delectably oily. Fashioned more in the plump, sweet style of Holland than eastern Europe (thick, hearty) or Scandinavia (light, flowery). P.P. (4/1/2003) 96-100

Technical notes
(80) The vodka is four-column distilled once and made from American Midwest corn and rye. Further, the vodka is not filtered and is distilled to 192 proof for extra purity.

Food pairing
On the rocks, with a splash of soda water, or shaken & served up.
