August 2016 Liquor of the Month – Valentine Vodka
Valentine Vodka was awarded winner of the World’s Best Vodka from the 2016 World Vodka Awards held in London, England. We’re excited to bring you a unique way to enjoy this Michigan vodka. Valentine’s exquisite vodka has mild aromas of banana-coconut pudding and pastry, paired with a silky medium to full body, finishing with a creamy, peppery spice. This variety of flavors is due to the distillation process taking place in copper pots.
Copper pots, you say! Yes, that’s correct. The reasons copper is often used for distilling are because it is a great conductor of heat and will remove sulfur compounds. This distilling process gives Valentine Vodka it’s unique flavor.
For those of you wanting to take the flavor game to the next level, we’ve got you covered. Right now, we have Limited Edition Valentine 100% copper mugs in stock. This is a truly one of a kind way to get every ounce of flavor to come through. Whether it’s your favorite vodka drink, or the one that follows, nothing will beat having a copper mug to sip it out of.
1.5 oz. Valentine Vodka
1 tsp. Simple Syrup
4 oz. Fever Tree Ginger Beer
Pour all ingredients over ice into a copper mug. Garnish with squeezed wedge of lime and a mint sprig.
