Hangar 1 Chipotle Vodka
Hangar One is a blend of pot-distilled, Viognier wine-based vodka with fine column-distilled wheat vodka. The result is incredibly smooth, with almost none of the harshness usually associated with vodka. A hint of Viognier character is still present in the final blend, which adds subtle fruit notes to this elegant spirit.
"At first, I'd been thinking of distilling black pepper for a spirit to work in bloody marys. But when we started experimenting with chipotles, I realized that this flavor - mild, earthy and smokey spice - could pair just as well with bourbons, brandies, and fruit juices. After testing a variety of pasilla, cobàn and piquíns, we finally sourced a unique purple morita from Chihuahua that produced a range of flavor none of us had ever experienced from pepper before. From the aroma to the finish, our chipotle spirit offers notes of dark chocolate, alder smoke, and warm, even heat."
