Vodka is a simple product. It is one of the easiest spirits to distill. Crafting a high quality, flavorful vodka from just a few ingredients is NOT an easy task. Sweet Grass refuses to add artificial flavoring. They rely on fresh, local ingredients to achieve an exceptionally smooth taste. It all starts on the field, where hardworking families grow the potatoes that eventually will become Sweet Grass Vodka. The single ingredient in Sweet Grass consists of ONLY organic potatoes, water and yeast.
It is the natural taste of the raw potatoes that dictates the flavor of what ultimately ends up in the bottle. The minerals they absorb from the soil that are grown in creates a unique flavor palette.
These essential flavors are brought out every time the vodka is distilled until they achieve the pure, refined taste of the South
All vodka is not the same. It does not have to be flavorless, colorless and odorless. By distilling Sweet Grass Vodka six times, the smooth taste is achieved. The mouthfeel allows the unique notes of the potatoes grown in South Carolina to shine through. This process filters away the unpleasant ethanol taste and odor that remain after the first, second and third distillation. After the fifth distillation any impurities have been filtered away, so you can enjoy a smooth tasting vodka on the rocks or as the base of many cocktails.
We feel there’s something honest about producing a product from just a single local ingredient. That honesty is what we would like to represent our local, family owned distillery. That’s why we will continue to produce locally and bring the unique taste of South Carolina to the world.
