A quest to redefine vodka

‘Made by one of Europe’s biggest ‘blend rockstar’ Thomas Kuuttanen, this Vodka embodies the name that it goes by. Coming from Sweden the distillery location is a 13th century Ellinge castle. Thomas's team engineered a special copper-golden pot still just for making Vodka. They source the raw ingredients - winter wheat & barley - directly from the estate surroundings. Then they distill the liquid 34 times! 

 

During the thirty-four distillations, ninety percent of the liquid is lost and only the "perfect cut" is selected as the heart of Purity Vodka. This final spirit, reaching 96% vol. (192 Proof), is so refined that no filtration is necessary, thus leaving all the natural flavors and character in the vodka. The refined spirit is then carefully reduced by using a mix of deionied water and natural, mineral rich water, and blended with tailor made organic column spirits which are made from the very finest wheat. "Small-batch distillation in a pot still results in an astonishingly smooth vodka loaded with character. Its oily texture is dominated by minerals and umami, backed up by delicate tones of white chocolate, vanilla and liquorice.

Vodka Compare by Drinkhacker

Purity vs Grey Goose

Grey Goose - Slightly sweet, with lemongrass notes, both on the nose and the palate. The body offers touches of pepper, with a warming, soothing finish. The slightly syrupy, overblown texture is the only drawback here, as it just so slightly coats the mouth when it should be cleansing. Overall it’s completely drinkable and versatile. 

Purity - Significantly less character — much, much cleaner and more neutral. There’s more of an eastern European feel to this, with a light medicinality and more pepper on the back end. As with Vodka A, there’s a subtle lemon character, which comes along with time in the glass and exposure to air. A very good vodka, but the lighter body, which is mouth cleansing instead of coating, makes it not just a good mixer but a good choice for sipping straight.

 


 

Editor’s Vodka comparison notes

Spherical blind tasting from Drinkhacker ! Let’s not mistake the subtle character of a refine ‘Eau de vie’ that Purity portraits, all in all in what makes a vodka relevant to sipping enjoyment. Indeed it rinses the mouth and does not coat it, with an after taste of fresh lemon, liquoriche, cream, sweet and salt the same time but most of all…pure smooth !
