Key Information

Jorg Rupf and Lance Winters figured out how to make straight vodka taste good.

First they pot-distill a vodka from expensive viognier wine. Then they blend it into an excellent column still wheat vodka. Here's the magic: there's no harsh alcoholic smell or taste, just soft beautiful purity.

Hangar One's 'straight' vodka is a blend of grain (wheat) neutral spirit and a vodka crafted from viognier wine. They use the viognier vodka to diminish the alcoholic overtone found in most other vodkas.

Viognier is an old varietal wine grape that makes a delicious white wine, but it's relatively new to California. Viognier grapes are hard to grow, and they don't produce a whole lot of fruit.

To get the full flavour, you have to pick them when they're perfectly ripe. 'But despite, or perhaps because of, this precariousness has the most amazing clear, golden colour and the aroma of flowers and fruits at their freshest.'
