Grey Goose Vodka (750ml) $25.99
90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Best well chilled, this classic brand has a mild sweetness that hints at marshmallow and cocoa bean, plus flares of citrus peel, cassia bark and ginger on the clean finish. (KN)" (10/2013) K&L Notes: Ketel One is made in Holland. It is a family-owned business which has been carrying on the tradition of vodka-making for eleven generations. Their focus at Ketel One is quality, tradition and personal commitment to their customers. This shows in their vodka by offering only the heart of each distillate, tasted by a member of the family before it is released. One of the b... Read More »
The famed French vodka for your favorite cocktail. Made in a copper pot still from a fine blend of French wheat and water from the Gensac Springs in Cognac.
We firmly believe that Belvedere is one of the best vodkas in the business and at this price it's a steal. An award-winning hand-crafted Polish Vodka, made according to centuries-old traditional methods, this is 100% Polish rye, distilled 4 times and charcoal filtered. The illustration on the back depicts the Belvedere House, the Polish equivalent to the White House, the official residence of the Polish president in Warsaw. Additive-free and diluted with water from Belvedere's own artesian well, it exhibits delicate aromas and flavors, with hints of vani... Read More »
The no-compete clause is over!!! St. George is finally back in the vodka business. After selling off the Hangar One brand to Proximo, our local heroes over in Alameda were not allowed to create a vodka of their own for four whole years. Time has now passed, and the contract has expired. Let us now introduce you to the new St. George vodkas. Made from 100% American grain and fruit, the "all purpose" vodka is soft, lithe, and clean; finishing with a rounded mouthfeel that is both simultaneously refreshing and gentle. The supple weight comes from Bartlett p... Read More »
90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This potato-based vodka from a small-scale Pennsylvania producer provides a versatile canvas for a wide array of drinks. With its lightly fruity aromas and flavors and a clean finish, it's also lovely neat. (KN)" (11/2012) K&L Notes: This is a small batch vodka made in Pennsylvania from locally grown potatoes by two guys using a copper still. The result is a softer, creamier style of vodka that is milder on the palate than most. This is vodka made by people who really care about quality and precision, and that's obvious at first sip. F. Paul Pacult's Spirits Journal ... Read More »
Wine Enthusiast: "The first sniffings unearth a soft, slightly sour and vegetal aroma; more time adds minor scents of ash and unsmoked cigarette. The bittersweet palate entry taste flashes on cocoa bean and sap; at midpalate toasty, sooty flavors of tobacco leaf, wood smoke, wood resin and vanilla are found. Ends up semisweet, succulent and roughly spirity." (6/2006) K&L Notes: Chopin Vodka, imported from Poland, is crafted from 100% hand-cultivated Stobrawa potatoes. It is four times distilled to create full flavored, smooth and clean vodka. This family owned distillery has operated ... Read More »
90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "The bouquet is subtle and alluring, with distant notes of buttered popcorn and escarole broth; aeration stimulates aromas of peanut butter, rye toast and damp cobblestone. Silky palate entry is slightly sweet, concentrated and grainy; at midpalate, the flavor turns drier, lightly spiced and almost fruity (as in dried fruit). Aftertaste is long and spicy. Well crafted and quality driven." (6/2004) K&L Notes: Made from 100% Polish rye, the Potocki vodka might be the best vodka we carry. It's the cleanest, most pure form of vodka I've ever had the chance to taste and I ... Read More »
This limited production Vodka from the exceptional Buffalo Trace Distillery is personally supervised by rockstar distiller Harlan Wheatley, who created the special recipe using wheat and several other grains. It's distilled on their unusual hybrid experimental still. The method for production revolves around highlighting the crisp, pure flavors of wheat grain. After cooking and mashing a 100% wheat bill, the wort is distilled seven times before being carefully blended with distillates of other grains. These add nuance and texture to the soft, rich wheat ... Read More »
Wine Enthusiast: "The vodka inside the pretty rainbow-shaped bottle reads almost like a light rum. It has a sweet, marshmallow-like fragrance as well as a sweet vanilla flavor, unmitigated by ice. Very smooth. Made from organic white corn and distilled seven times. (KN)" (7/2011)
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Initial nosing passes reveal a zesty and mildly spicy aroma that's focused on the cereal grain; the bouquet registers on the leaner, drier side of neutral grain spirits and as such is in direct opposition to other creamier, sweeter Dutch vodkas. Palate entry is moderately sweet, almost smoky; at midpalate, a flash of black licorice tempts the taste buds, then recedes, allowing the sweet, nearly smoky/pipe tobacco leaf taste to dominate." (6/2006)
Wine & Spirits: "Lance Winters of St. George Spirits helped reinvent American vodka when he co-created the Hangar One line and its exotic flavors like Buddha’s Hand and Kaffir Lime. Since selling the brand in 2010, he’s been vodka-free until this year. St. George’s new vodkas are less flamboyant and more workman-like, but no less artful. The All Purpose is smooth, robust, and easy going; California Citrus is fragrant with fruits and blossoms, yet remains restrained and modest, and Green Chile is destined to vivify a Bloody Mary or Margarita. All impress not with glitz, b ...Read More »
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The neutral aroma hints at orange peel. On the palate, this vodka is silky, with a faint anise note and a brisk, bracing finish. It's ideal for vodka martinis and other cocktails. Made from 100% organic rye. (KN)" (10/2016) K&L Notes: Square One is the world's first certified organic rye vodka. It is handcrafted from 100%-certified organically grown rye grown in North Dakota and produced with an unprecedented organic fermentation process. Using only a single distillation in a four-column still, the resulting spirit is richer and smoother than any vodka on the market.... Read More »

After selling off the Hangar One brand to Proximo, our local heroes over in Alameda were not allowed to create a vodka of their own for four whole years. Time has now passed, and the contract has expired. Let us now introduce you to the new St. George vodkas.

The Elix Single Estate Vodka is Absolut's answer to the craft spirits movement.

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Neutral, faintly juniper-like scent. Smooth, mellow, earthy/malty flavor. Made from Idaho russet potatoes." (7/2011) K&L Notes: We love promoting high quality products made here in the USA. Blue Ice Vodka is 100% Potato Vodka grown and distilled in Rigby, Idaho, which is about 200 miles east of Sun Valley. It is hand-crafted from Idaho's famed Russet Burbank potatoes and water sourced from the melting of the Rocky Mountain snowcaps. This produces a rich, mellow flavor with a hint of sweetness. Very fresh and clean with no glycerin.

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A sooty initial aroma; following aeration, enticing, dry notes of palm oil, unsalted butter, grain mash and slate emerge. The palate entry is bone dry as soot and slate tastes meld, then turn delightfully oily and textured. Clean, medium-weight and nicely. (PP)" (4/2006)
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The delicate perfume is softly grainy, with nuances of white pepper, wheat crackers and cigarette tobacco. The palate entry is elegant yet a touch hot; at midpalate the dry flavor turns silky in texture and minerally and stone-like in taste. Concludes bean- and kernel-like, bittersweet and a touch soy curd-like. A subtle, understated vodka with lots of layers and grip." (6/2006) K&L Notes: The same incredible vodka as Jewel of Russia Ultra without the expensive, hand-painted bottle. Possibly the best vodka available at any price.
This exceptional handcrafted vodka comes from a tiny distillery that first opened business in an LA Arts District loft. Silver Medal 2014 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Press on Loft & Bear from LA Weekly: "Made with winter wheat, like Svedka and Grey Goose, Young State America's only product is called Loft & Bear, a soft, sweet and viscous vodka that retains a lot of subtle character from the grains. 'I like smooth vodkas with no medicinal burn,' Ryan, one of the youngest master distillers in the country, says from inside his small facility a ... Read More »

Remarkably bright in appearance, this vodka is lightly sweet on the nose and palate, mildly citrusy and has a crisp, almost effervescent feel. (KN)" (10/2013) K&L Notes: Made from 100% organic grains and pot distilled 34 times, this unfiltered and ultra-pure vodka is redefining elegance for the spirit. Creamy on the palate with a clean neutrality that tends towards beauty rather than boredom, you can sip this vodka neat, in a martini, o... Read More »

A fun surprise at K&L is this new sweet potato vodka being produced south of my hometown of Modesto. Corbin Sweet Potato Vodka is being made in the Central Valley town of Atwater by the Souza family, who have been working the land for the last hundred years. They've set up a distillery onsite and their first release is this creamy, clean, and polished vodka that really caught me off guard last week. Also, if you've got a gluten allergy, you might want to give this baby a whirl as it's 100% sweet potato-based. (David Driscoll, Spirits buyer)
This quintessentially California vodka is one of the most unusual and delicious offerings I've come across from any of the new craft distillers. The boys up at Ventura Spirits start with locally sourced strawberries (California is king of berries after all) which are blended with a small portion of fresh cane sugar. This is then fermented and distilled four times before being bottled without filtration. The result is naturally complex, fruit-forward vodka of the highest order, but it's NOT flavored you see? Just distilled from strawberry. Perfect for mix... Read More »

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "0 This cucumber-flavored vodka has a delicate, barely-there cucumber fragrance. Overall it’s neutral and smooth, with just a bit of cucumber and citrus heading into the long finish. Made from organic rye and “infused with the essence of organic cucumbers”. USDA certified organic." K&L Notes: So refreshing and so delicious, this is an elegant, aromatic and 100% organic vodka, made from blending the essence of organic cucumber with Square One's original certified organic American rye vodka. The same technique is used here to capture the essence of the cucumber as is do... Read More »
Tasting Panel 92 points: "Warm and inviting nose of mocha and white tea. The liquid is pillow soft and yet weighty on palate. The subtle wake-up call of white pepper occurs on the tip of the tongue but the spread of cocoa, white tea and black licorice loves to linger. A stand-out." Producer note: "Created from centuries of Russian vodka-making traditions, White Tiger vodka is an authentic Siberian Spirit, distilled from highest quality winter wheat and rye, and blended with pure ultra soft Sikhote-Alin mountain water. Double distillation allows for retai... Read More »
This lovely vodka has nothing in it but fine Spanish grain and pure water. It's distilled five times in an ancient distillery owned by the Casalbor family, in a soft bain-marie method that creates one the easiest and most appealing vodkas on the market. Hints of juicy Sevilla orange burst from the glass on first nose. The palate is weighty and rich with subtle vanilla notes. A true craft vodka in the most traditional sense of the word. Try it with the family's exceptional Indi tonic waters for the real Andalucian experience.

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aroma is dry, clean, and grainy, with background notes of parchment and litchi; later passes offer semisweet, mildly smoky/ashy scents of charcoal and smoldering embers. Palate entry is firm, moderately oily, bittersweet; at midpalate concentrated and spicy grain flavors mingle adroitly with the smoky, sap- and resin-sweet birch-charcoal filtering influence. Concludes sweetly and almost candy-like." (6/2006) K&L Notes: Stolichnaya's luxury vodka, Elit, is distilled four times then filtered in a patented process that mimics the age-old Russian tradition of pouring the... Read More »
This wonderful and surprising product is the result of one of the most unusual production practices in the business. The distillery is located in the Makawao region, the heart of Maui's pineapple producing upcountry. The start with locally sourced pineapples. These are slowly fermented over five days with only the addition of yeast and water. Distillation occurs on customer made GLASS stills.

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Though clear in the bottle, this unique flavored vodka offers a bold, zesty, appetizing tomato aroma. On the palate, it’s more tomato water than tomato juice: light, breezy and mouthwatering. What a treat for lighter variations of a bloody mary, or other garden-inspired cocktails. USDA-certified organic." (11/2013) K&L Notes: Crop Harvest Earth vodkas are USDA certified organic and made from American corn, distilled and bottled in Minnesota. The organic Tomato vodka has a clean, tomato-y flavor that would easily up the ante on your Sunday Blood Mary. But why limit y... Read More »

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Superb/Highly Recommended; One of Top 50 Spirits of 2009* Smells nicely of sweet grass, paraffin, acetate and wheat crackers; aeration bolsters the aromatic impressions of the first round and adds a subtle spiciness (nutmeg?) that complements the grassy quality. Palate entry teems with zesty, spicy, medicinal and grassy flavors; midpalate flavors come off chocolaty and milky, with disparate background tastes of egg cream and green pepper."

From St. George Spirits, these extraordinary vodkas are some of the finest we have ever seen produced. Kaffir lime is native to central Indonesia. Its lovely flavor is well know in Thai cuisine.

96-100 points Wine Enthusiast: "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)." (04/03)
