karlsson vodka

Not going to lie, getting pulled in here by the whole backstory; former blender for Absolut [not at all my fave -ed] turns to create a once-distilled, unfiltered vodka made from new potatoes, again from Sweden. Serve it neat or w/ cracked pepper in loving 5D slo-mo. Mid priced $24 for 750cl. Well played video about the brand below discussing creating vodka as a value added product for the area (reminiscent of first cheddar then cheese generally as the value added savior of Vermont dairies), but also equating it with farm-to-table sensibilities. You know, the sort of bo-bo stuff for which I am a sucker... In that vein, I need to try Cold River vodka from Maine, similar idea.
