Producer Information

Key Information

AVAILABLE AGAIN IN JUNE '09.

From upper Washington state, the Meeker raspberry makes a startlingly fresh-tasting vodka. Hangar One make only one batch a year, in June, when the berries are ripe.

People get excited about the Fraser River Raspberry vodka because it's just like fresh raspberries, not the bubblegum chemical compound you expect from 'raspberry flavoured' products. They don't add sugar. They don't add anything. It's just raspberries and vodka.

Hangar One macerate and distill the berries, then blend in raspberry juice. The juice adds complexity and a natural colour. They had a totally fabulous design for their raspberry bottle, but when they put the finished product in it, the fresh juice didn't like the UV rays that came through the clear glass. Now they use a green bottle that gives full UV protection, so they can keep distilling what they think is a truly exceptional spirit.

Hangar One buy red Meeker raspberries from some folks up in Washington state's Fraser River valley.

Try the vodka with some dark chocolate.
