Charbay Vodka Green Tea 80@

Charbay Vodka Green Tea 80@ 750ML     
Sku: 20084

Founded in 1983, Charbay Distillery & Winery is owned and managed by Master Distiller Miles Karakasevic, his wife Susan, their son Marko and his wife, Jenni. The Karakasevics are considered pioneers in the American artisan distillery movement not surprising, when you realize that the family comes from a long line of distillers dating back to 1751 in the former Yugoslavia. In 2009, Marko became the family’s 13th generation of Master Distillers to work in the business. Based in Napa Valley, the distillery is located on Spring Mountain above St. Helena, California. They produce a range of vodkas and spirits distilled in their Alambic Charentais Pot Still. Charbay released its first fruit flavored vodka in 1998 and Marko was promptly named a “Vodka Visionary by Food & Wine Magazine. All of their fruit based vodkas are made with 100% organically grown fruit.

Tasting notes
The teas pretty top notes and aromas of spring florals, along with hints of green melon, sage and honey nicely complement the smooth vodka base.

Rating
 Wine Enthusiast 90 points (Apr 2006)
The overall bouquet impression includes seductive fragrances of ripe green melon, sage and lightly honeyed green tea with later whiffs of jasmine and honeysuckle. The palate entry is gently tea-like and a touch honeyed; the midpalate profile borders on be — P.P. (3/1/2006) — 90-95

Wine maker notes
This flavored vodka took nearly 5 years to create. Miles sourced and extracted many (many!) varieties of tea to find the flavor profile that matched his vision. Ultimately, he chose rare first-growth green tea from the Anhwei Province, a prime growing region along China’s fabled Silk Route. Perfecting the extraction technique to ensure well-balanced flavors & a smooth mouthfeel required his years of experience as a Master Distiller.

Technical notes
(80º) The family uses four rare, first growth, whole-leaf varieties of green tea to ensure full expression of the delicate flavors.
