Our Premium Wheat Vodka is 100% wheat-based and conveys a clean and smooth flavor, as well as a full body and rich texture. Given a final distillation in our 750-gallon copper pot still, we are able to round out the spirit while giving it a full-body mouth feel.
Vodka is a modern day J. Rieger & Co. creation as the original distillery never produced vodka. Vodka was not a product widely consumed in the United States until the 1950s, about 30 years after we shut our doors due to Prohibition. We start with the highest quality wheat neutral grain spirit. While corn is the most common base for American made vodka, and potato or even rye is not uncommon, wheat gives us the cleanest flavor.
Using the techniques that he has learned from Dave Pickerell and Tom Nichol, our Head Distiller Nathan Perry then gives the wheat NGS a final distillation in our large copper pot still. This allows us to round out the texture of the spirit while preserving its naturally soft, sweet flavor. Our Premium Wheat Vodka is the perfect base for classic cocktails such as the Moscow Mule or Vodka Martini, while also serving as a blank canvas for new creative cocktails.
