Aylesbury Duck Vodka
A Soft Winter Wheat Vodka Distilled In The Canadian Rockies
Aylesbury Duck Vodka is made from soft, white winter wheat that is sourced directly from local farmers in the Western Rockies of Canada. Once the wheat has been harvested, it is mashed and fermented for approximately three days before being distilled through three individual column stills that were constructed in the 1940s.
Following distillation, the vodka is brought to proof with water from the Mendocino well (the water from the well, which has only 4 particles per million, is exceptionally soft) and bottled without the use of carbon filtration, to preserve its unique flavour.
Aylesbury Duck Vodka has an aroma of fresh vegetables, wheat, carrot and ginger. The aroma opens up to notes of caramel, fresh bread and citrus on the palate and finishes with a touch of lemon and rhubarb. The vodka earned the Silver Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2013, and earned four stars from F. Paul Pacult’s Spirit Journal.
"“Wheat. Column still. Translucent...Initial sniffs encounter delightfully dry toasted bread, breakfast cereal and Wheat Thin notes that are fully fleshed out and engaging immediately; further air contact brings our earthy/mineral scents that mesh well with the dry cereal aroma, specifically, earthy, minerally and cereally...”." - Spirit Journal, December 2012
