| Teton Glacier (Potato), 80°, Idaho, 93 W.E. 750 ml.|
The potato inherently produces a smoother vodka than its grain counterpart. But Teton GLACIER takes this natural advantage to an even higher level.Teton GLACIER, which uses the renowned russet potato of Idaho and with special distillation, imparts to GLACIER a subtle lusciousness, and a very soft feel on the palate., chilled Rocky Mountain well water, achieves a vodka without harshness or "bite," with a subtle hint of viscosity and a smooth, soft feel on the palate.
Teton GLACIER is produced in a four-column, multi-plate, continuous distillation process that elevates the proof of the alcohol being distilled as it strips out virtually all impurities. Since each plate in each rectifying column has the same distillation capacity as on pot still distillation, Master Distiller, Pat Wernimont distills each batch the equivalent of 50 times, thereby achieving his objective: to produce vodka that is exceptionally clean and smooth but possessing a rich body.Filtration through charcoal and garnet crystals completes the processa vodka that is both ultra clean and balanced with soft edges and a wholeness that critics say 'The Best Vodka in the World and It's Made in America'.
In the United States, most vodkas are made in industrial alcohol plants operated by the major grain processors. This alcohol is sold to industrial users of ethanol, as well as to the alcoholic beverage industry for use as a blending spirit or, after filtration and dilution with water, as vodka. Virtually all of these grain vodkas are diluted with water that is distilled or chemically treated.There are three potato vodkas distributed nationally in the United States. Two of them are made in Poland by the Polish Government and one - Teton GLACIER Vodka - is made here in America, in Rigby, Idaho.
