||100% Alberta Corn|
|Distiller||Lone Pine Distilling (Edmonton, AB)|
This vodka is made from Alberta corn, and made quite intensively - it is distilling twenty times and carbon filtered before bottling. Lone Pine makes two different vodkas - one from corn, one from wheat. If anyone thinks vodkas from different grains taste the same, or that all vodkas taste alike, these are two perfect examples of why that isn’t true. Corn tends to give vodkas with good body and an underlying sweetness.

The nose here is quite sweet for a vodka- slight vanilla, nutty chocolate notes (like Ferrero Rocher), citrus zest, and some light earthiness. It’s thick on the palate, slightly sweet, with a background of earthy notes and a big flourish of spice on the finish especially white pepper.
Very clean, very easy, but still sharp and spicy. It’ll shine however you drink your vodka (and for me, especially in vodka forward cocktails).
