Anders’ Handcrafted Vodka 100% Colorado Review

Anders’ Handcrafted Vodka is distilled in small batches using a state of the art still. The source used for this vodka is sweet corn from the Olathe region of Colorado. Farmers here use snowmelt to irrigate. The corn kernels are smaller than the kernel of regular corn and have a concentrated flavor. It is analogous to the size of wine grapes to table grapes. The cost is much higher, but the quality of the corn is exceptional. Harvesting of the corn is done without pesticides and the corn is naturally Gluten Free. This corn is usually hand picked rather than machine harvested because of the soft nature of the corn.
The water used in irrigation, distilling and to cut the distillate begins as snowmelt and for the processing and cutting is then purified. While many distilleries use purified water, few begin with anything as pristine as ours.
The filtration process is another big difference between this vodka and others. They filter the vodka once and coarsely, they make it this way to leave more of the oils and to have a more flavorful vodka. This creates a weightier vodka.
The corn is brought in whole kernels from the farms and milled on site. This is important because pre-milled grains can become oxidized and lose much of the flavor. It is fermented right after milling sent straight to the fermenters to again guard against oxidation. The fermented liquid is then batch distilled. Unlike continuous distillation this leaves more of the original character. It is distilled correctly one time, and the heads and tails are cut. We cut 30% of the distillate to ensure only the heart of the distillate remains.
The label features mountains a depiction of the Maroon Bells and Pyramid Peak in the Colorado Rockies, which is a backdrop to the distillery.

Highly recommended order a bottle of Anders’ Handcrafted Vodka here

CRAFT BEER HELLHOUNDS ALE MALS-39 REVIEW

HELLHOUNDS ALE MALS-39

239TH Marine Corps Birthday 2014

This is a 1 Pint , 6 Fluid Qunces Alc. 6.39% by Vol.
Brewed & Bottled By Mother Earth Brew Co. Vista, CA

On The Back Of Each Bottle It Says:

Each one of you earned the title “Marine” and has a lifetime membership in this organization that is respected, admired, and feared. The title has no rank, no age, and it applies whether you are active duty, in the reserves, or retired. Everyone who has earned the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor is a marine for life and there is no greater civic calling.

For 239 years, Marines have protected our great nation with skill and military distinction. The Hellhounds of MALS-39 have supported every major operation since our inception during the Vietnam War. Currently, we have Hellhounds involved in operations in Afghanistan, embarked aboard the USS MAKIN ISLANS, and in Okinawa as part of the Unit Deployment Program. Individually, we are Maintenance and Supply professionals, IYAOYAS, and Warrior Monks, but collectively we accomplish the mission as the Hellhound TEAM and we will be prepared to do so whenever our nation calls upon us.

Happy Birthday Marines and Semper Fi!

LtCol R. W. Sherwood
Commanding Officer, MALS-39

The story behind Louisiana Lightning is all about “old Mr. Dufour” in a lightning strike in Amite City, Louisiana where he walked up, touched the lightning bolt “Silky smooth although it does give one a bit of a tingle.” After saying that he sliced off a piece of the lightning and the claim now is that there is a little tiny sliver of lightning in every bottle to make it “silky smooth.” Louisiana Lightning is an award winning corn-grain white whiskey distilled in Amite, Louisiana. Below are listed some of the many awards Louisiana Lightning Whiskey has received.
