Hangar One Citron Buddhas Hand Vodka
Hangar One Citron Buddhas isn’t just a funny looking lemon; it’s the ancient relative of the modern lemon. Like all great lineages, its flavors and aromas run so much deeper notes of jasmine, basil and apricot all mingle. Its acid bite is milder than a standard lemon. Allowing these secondary flavors to take center stage, and dance a ballet on your palate. The purified lemon extracts in other vodkas give you a single note. Our Buddha’s Hand plays the whole symphony.
Hangar One Citron Buddhas vodka is produced in a old aircraft hanger near San Francisco in small Holstein Pot Stills. Most commercial vodka is produced in column stills at rectification plants in huge refinery like settings and quantities.
This version uses Buddhas Hand, a yellowish/whtie fruit that looks as if it has long fingers. Used as a aromatic air freshener in Asia, it is exotic and hideously expensive here. As with their other flavored vodkas they infuse and macerate their flavorings, rather than add extracts or chemicals to a grain alcohol base. As such, it is a standout from the alcop flavored vodkas out there that tast more like a popsicle than a serious drink. This is made with real fruit and nothing else.
