Valentine Vodka is an unparalleled small batch vodka made from Midwest grains, artfully distilled in a Christian Carl still, and filtered through a proprietary activated-carbon system made from coconut shells. Creating a world-class vodka leaves no margin for error and every step of the process needs to be refined, then refined again, and refined once more, which is what Valentine has done for the last 10 years.
Distillation Process: Valentine uses a three-grain blend to add unique texture and nuance: 50 % corn, 25% wheat, 25% barley. The distillate is then put into a 225-gallon Christian Carl still with two 35’ columns housing 42 trays each. The vodka is filtered slowly for 24 hours through carbonized coconut shells in a double false-bottom 50-gallon drum to strike the perfect balance of texture and (quality or flavor – you choose). It is left to rest for a week before being diluted to proof and bottled by hand.
Tasting Notes: Their signature vodka has mild aromas of banana-coconut pudding and pastry aromas with a silky medium to full body and a creamy, peppery spice and talc finish.
