You better bee-lieve it – this is one extraordinary vodka. It's distilled from honey using both a pot still (usually used for whiskey) and a column still (actually used for vodka), which allows the vodka to retain some sweetness and distinctive floral notes. Be sure to sniff as you sip to enjoy the distinctive honey aroma.  

Why honey? Caledonia Spirits started out as an apiary. Founder and head beekeeper Todd Hardie knew he needed to expand beyond honey to make his business really work. Some of Todd's relatives were distillers in Scotland, so he learned to make mead, which eventually led him to build a distillery on his farm.

This bottle makes a buzz-worthy gift for any vodka fan.

Add 2 oz Barr Hill Vodka, 1 oz limoncello, 1/2 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice. Shake until very cold and strain into a wide-mouth glass filled with ice. Top with seltzer and garnish with a sprig of mint.
