We don’t often feature adult only content on our site, but I’m writing to tell you about two spirit that may be a nice addition to your holiday entertaining and gift giving this season. One is LEAF Organic Vodka, and the other is Khortytsa Vodka. While not a drinker, I tend to partake in spirits on special occassions, at weddings and holiday parties. I also serve it at gathering, typically in special recipes which pair nicely with the menu. Check out the special holiday recipes below! For the vodka lover in your life, these also make great gifts during the holiday season.
LEAF believes vodka’s main ingredient, water, is what truly defines the spirit. LEAF Vodka is sourced from unique waters here in the USA. One variety is made from Alaskan Glacial water, which lends a pure, smooth taste with a hint of sweetness. The other, made from Rocky Mountain mineral water, provides richness and complexity, offering a warm and savory impression. The water sources give LEAF Vodkas their signature tastes.
Ukraine’s famed Khortytsa (Hor-Ti-Tsa) Vodka (or KHOR for short) is the world’s third largest selling vodka!
The Khortytsa Distillery is located near Khortytsa Island, known as the “heart of Ukraine.” This ancient island’s history dates back thousands of years and reaches the roots of civilization. It is considered a sacred place in Ukraine and is one of the country’s seven wonders. Built in 2003, it uses a local organic filter containing schungite (a unique natural mineral) which allows it to get as close as possible to the structure of natural water. The filtration process is further enhanced with special birch and alder-tree charcoal and quartz sand sourced near the famous Ural Mountains.
