All Purpose Vodka

MADE BY ST. GEORGE SPIRITS IN ALAMEDA, CALIFORNIA

MOUTH SAYS...

This super-versatile, silky, full-bodied vodka is distilled from Bartlett pears. Yes, pears. No, there's no overt pear flavor, so don’t mistake this for a flavored vodka. What you get is an unobtrusive, gently floral top note with a little not-to-sweet vanilla warmth underneath, thank you very much.

The folks at St. George Spirits designed All Purpose Vodka to be just that: the perfect base for your favorite vodka cocktails. And they’ve had quite a lot of experience with pears, boasting 30+ years distilling the fruit into incredible brandies and liqueurs.

St. George distills their flagship pear brandy in a copper Holstein still, then blends the resulting distillate with a non-GMO base spirit, and filters before bottling for that smooth, clean flavor.

Just one of many ways to showcase this anything-goes spirit is the Dirty Martini: Stir 2 1/2 oz All Purpose Vodka, 1/2 oz Vya Extra Dry Vermouth and 2 bar spoon measures of olive brine in a glass. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a green olive.

  • $39 for 750ml
