Volstead Vodka By House Spirits 750ml
Volstead Vodka pays homage to an unlikely American hero the congressman who brought vodka to America, entirely by accident. Distilled from naturally gluten free American grain, filtered through charred coconut husks for 96 hours. Cut to proof using pure Cascade Mountain water. Volstead earned a prestigious gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Volstead Vodka is naturally gluten-free, hand crafted from American grain spirit, filtered through charred coconut husks for 96 hours, and finished with Cascade mountain water to deliver a smooth, creamy mouth feel and clean finish.
The clean nose carries a light coconut aroma with floral notes. Layered with a central coconut flavour, distinct exotic whiffs of smoke, and soft notes of coffee and char. Gentle after-hints of florals, vanilla and passion fruit. The flavour profile is surprisingly rich for a corn-based Vodka, with a bit of spice to balance out the sweetness.
