OYO Stone Fruit VodkaMADE BY MIDDLE WEST SPIRITS IN COLUMBUS, OHIO
We don't mind admitting: This is one flavored vodka that holds a permanent place in our bar cart. The gorgeous crimson color is stunning in cocktails, but it's the bright, fruity and remarkably complex taste that set our obsession in stone.
Middle West Spirits starts with vodka made from American Midwest red wheat (the same base they use for their incredible wheat whiskey). Then, they add a bunch of fall stone fruit: whole local Montmorency cherries, yellow peaches, fragrant apricots. There's also almond, fresh hibiscus flower and a touch of Ohio wildflower honey.
did you know?
Unlike many vodkas, and virtually all flavored vodkas, Middle West Spirits doesn't charcoal filter, so the vodka retains a lot of body and character from the wheat.
