For most of you that read this blog it will probably be difficult for you to get a hold of this vodka. It is by one of our bow tie customers, David Meisenburg, who has done something extraordinary in creating a certified organic vodka that is in his own words "a limited artisan vodka that is pure from Seed-To-Seal" .
That means growing potatoes as a Certified Organic Planter and as a Certified Organic Handler whereby no herbicides or pesticides are ever used in his farming fields in Wisconsin and where by each rototilled row of potatoes has had all harmful pests and weeds around each plant removed by hand.
The result, which I tasted yesterday, is such an unusually smooth and lovely vodka, unlike any others that I have tasted. It had a soft sweetness on it that reminded me of freshly cut grass and one sip and I went back for another, then another. By the time I had finished 'tasting' it I was three sheets to the wind and cutting silks like a mad scientist.
I am very happy that David found us and over the years he's sent in so many wonderful shots and, as some of you may recall, he purchased F. Scott Fitzgerald's house in St. Paul, Minnesota some years back. We've always had a mutual appreciation for literature, fine menswear and, now, his organic vodka.
If you stumble upon one of these bottles, drink it. It's a good bit of vodka. Very smooth, very clean.
