Although overall neutral and mild, this artisanal vodka is distinguished by a faint fruitiness and a touch of sweetness on the clean, crisp finish.

: April, 2006

Light aromas of peppermint and strawberry shortcake with hints of raspberry, strawberry and cinnamon on the palate; pleasantly spicy finish. Satisfyingly different.

: August 31, 2011

The Basics:
This handsome 80-proof vodka is made with wheat distilled in a custom-built column still. The light, clean spirit is then steeped with California Viognier grapes. The infused spirits are then redistilled in small, copper Holstein pot stills.

The Stats:
Origin: California, USA
Distilled from: wheat

Think while you drink:
The only vodka with a blimp (see cover story)

: January, 2004

Soft, elegant and aromatic with subtle pear, floral, and black currant; smooth, light finish.

: November, 2006

Light aromas of peppermint and strawberry shortcake with hints of raspberry, strawberry, and cinnamon on the palate; pleasantly spicy finish.

: September 1, 2002

Clear as rainwater — as pure and clean as one could hope for; the bouquet right after the pour is intensely grainy and gently sweet — aeration leads to perfumy hints of licorice, linseed oil and paraffin — a seductive, come-hither type of vodka bouquet that can only be achieved in small batch distilling; the palate entry is piquant, zesty, and intensely spirity — by the midpalate point, rich, sweet, and kernel-like flavors of cocoa bean, corn mash, and — am I dreaming? — grape pomace/grappa make willing prisoners of my taste buds — what kind of vodka is this? The finish is medium-long, grainy sweet, and slightly — well — grapy; love it, but at least to my palate it comes off almost as a cross between grain vodka and grape-must grappa; maybe I’ve been doing this for too long now.

: November, 2006

Hangar One vodkas are crafted by one of the country’s most esteemed distillers, Jorg Rupf of St. George Spirits in Alameda, California. Produced in conjunction with brandy distillers Germain-Robin, Hanger One Straight Vodka is a small-batch, pot-distilled grain spirit. The super premium vodka has a voluptuous body with a long and exceptionally smooth finish. One also produces a line of fruit-infused vodkas, including Buddha’s Hand, which is imbued with the flavor of citron, a fragrant Asian citrus fruit; tangerine-infused Mandarin Blossom; and Kaffir Lime, which is zesty, spry, and exceedingly refreshing.
