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.

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 »
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 ranked the Boyd & Blair Vodka the 22nd best spirit in the world, making it the Spirits Journal's top ranked Vodka, giving it five stars. In his review Pacult opines, "Wow, this aroma comes flying out of the glass in waves... Read More »
93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Although overall neutral and mild, this artisanal vodka is distinguished by a faint fruitiness and a touch of sweetness on the clean, crisp finish." (7/2011) K&L Notes: St. George Spirits are making extraordinary vodkas and some of the finest we have ever seen produced. What makes this vodka special is just a bit of floral, fruity, low-acid Viognier eau-de-vie that gets blended with the midwestern wheat spirit. Elegant and round on the palate with a nice smooth mouthfeel.

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "The deep, sweet orange and honeyed-floral fragrance is the first signal this vodka will be special. The flavors are clean and brisk, followed by a strong bite and honey and tangerine notes. It finishes sweet, with faint floral and vanilla notes coaxed out over ice." (10/2010) K&L Notes: From St. George Spirits, whose extraordinary vodkas are some of the finest we have ever seen produced. This includes the flowers of the mandarin blossom which bring across the delicate tangerine aromas perfectly. Imagine the care that must be take with so fragile an ingredient! Elegan... Read More »
91 points Wine Enthusiast: "A sweet and smooth spirit with rich marshmallow notes. Certified organic, this spirit is made with rye. Great for a vodka tonic." (7/2011) 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. Our staff was lucky enough to meet Allison Evanow the Co-Founder of Square One. We ... Read More »

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Superb/Highly Recommended* 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 ha...

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." (7/2011)
From St. George Spirits, these extraordinary vodkas are some of the finest we have ever seen produced. The "Buddha's Hand" is made from a very old citrus fruit. It has such wonderful aromatics that in China it is hung to perfume dwellings. Lively, elegant with amazing lemon-like flavors.
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 vodka into wooden barrels and keeping them outside in the Russian cold. The impurities are then frozen out, leaving only the best vodka in the liquid center. A clean, neutral spirit with just a whisper of toasted grain, the Elit is sumptuous yet light. Best served straight, chilled or over ice. 97 points Beverage Testing Institute: "Clear. Very neutral aromas of river rocks, faint anise, and custard. A sil... Read More »
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 mixi... Read More »
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. This vodka is filled with lush lime aromatics and flavors.The best lime flavored vodka we have ever tasted!
91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This New Zealand vodka—distilled from whey—is smooth, clean, sweet and surprisingly full bodied for a vodka, featuring light vanilla and anise notes." (2/2013) K&L Notes: You read correctly, this vodka is distilled from whey! Before you start thinking of Little Miss Muffet, let me tell you that this might be the best vodka we carry in the entire store, period. The purity of the distillate and the clean finish will destroy all faith in big brand loyalty. Try a bottle of the Broken Shed and just try going back to your standard vodka selection. This is as impressive as ... Read More »
90-95 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." (11/2004) 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 from the tiny distillery in
Distilled on the Dillon's hybrid pot/column still from high quality Niagara grapes - the Method 95 passes through the still three times before reaching upper limits of distilation to retain on the essence of the special grape base. Canada's only grape based vodka, this is true craft vodka at it's best.
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."

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 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. The single distillation is similar to a continuous still, but the column contains volcanic rock for filtration purposes. After one pass the spirit is already at 96.... Read More »
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.

Davorin Kuchan has been distilling spirits since his early days as a winemaker and eau-de-vie expert back in Croatia. When he established Old World Spirits here on the San Francisco Peninsula (right outside of Belmont), he brought with him the traditions and expertise of old world production methods and used them to formulate West Coast versions of his original spirits. This was right around the pre-Prohibition cocktail craze when vodka was becoming a dirty word, so Davorin instead made gin; never releasing his patented vodka formula state-side for fear ...

Purity has been winning awards all around the globe since its initial release so enjoy this while it's still reasonably priced! (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer)

Beluga Vodka is made with Siberian water, malted grain, high tech fermentation, and is distilled with the utmost care and never produced in bulk. Each production run requires 3 months to complete. Bottles are individually numbered and sealed with wax. Enjoy this exclusive and austere vodka with the finest cavier you can find!
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 done to isolate the natural plant essences for fragrances. It really smells and tastes like fresh-cut cucumber! This is nice sipped neat, but also adds a cool twist to both simple and complex cocktails. We like it in Square One's Celery Cup #1 recipe, a refreshing take on the Pimm'... 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." 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 retaining the natura... Read More »

Breaking Bad has become a cultural phenomenon. Now Blue Ice Vodka has released a series of special bottlings to commemorate BB's main bad dude, Heisenberg. It's not Blue Crystal, but Blue Ice Heisenberg is as close as you'll ever want to get. Each bottle has a memorable quote from the high school teacher turned drug kingpin adorning the label.
Opuntia is a prickly pear spirit, made from the fruit of the Nopal cactus. Its flavor is as singular as tequila’s, an invigorating balance of fresh fruit and desert earth that is all its own. Over a ton of sun-ripened California fruit is fermented into wine and then distilled in each batch. This is a new spirit tradition that belongs to California.

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Top 50 Spirits 2013* This is a vodka with character. A distinct counterpoint to ultradistilled vodkas, this potato vodka is distilled only once and left unfiltered, which accounts for its unique earthiness. Initial notes have a funkiness reminiscent of truffles. It finishes with black pepper and ginger, and a buttery mouthfeel. A standout for a bloody mary, dirty martini or any other savory cocktail."

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)

Part of the sustainable food movement in Wisconsin, sourcing all the materials from a small network of local farmers, Death's Door is all about thinking locally.

This tastes as good as vodka can taste and is made with 60% winter wheat and 40% malted barley, so it's basically 40% unaged whiskey. The subtle sweetnes... Read More »
The Charbay vodkas are for fans of pure, clean fruit flavor - never syrupy or sweet. The Ruby Grapefruit vodka from this award-winning distiller is made from Texas Rio Stars, sweet, succulent grapefruits that are tree-ripened for fuller flavor. The fruit is then crushed, skins and all, and the flavor and color is extracted naturally over three months. The extraction is blended with Charbay's Clear Vodka, a smoother, sipping style that makes this tangy sweet vodka enjoyable neat or on the rocks.
