Few vodkas can claim that they are 100% organic. Only one can boast a 97-point rating at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge, the highest in the history of the competition. I would like to introduce you to the best vodka you’ve probably never heard of, Purus Italian Vodka.
Born in the Piedmont region of north-western Italy in the Alps, Purus is composed of 100% organic Italian grain and water from the Italian Alps. Distilled by the Sacchetto family, who has been distilling alcohol in Italy since 1950, this third-generation family owned and operated company distills their vodka five times and filters it through more than 1.7 million square meters of active charcoal.
The end result is a clean and distinctive spirit, representative of the terroir.
Purus Organic Vodka (80 proof)
Visual: Crystal clear.
Nose: Fresh and crisp with a lot of high notes. Slight vanilla and cherry blossom, baker’s chocolate and a touch of salinity.
Taste: Remarkably smooth and soft. A light patina of powdered sugar and slightly crushed peppercorn. Simplicity in the glass, all the classic elements expected in a world-class vodka are here.
Finish: Medium-long with a clean finish.
Overall: I can only think of a handful of vodkas that have impressed me this much. Highly recommended!
GSN Rating: A+
