Vodka is a relative newcomer to the spirit market. Before the 1950’s it was rarely drunk outside of Europe. James Bond, the vodka martini and history did the rest.
Quintessential vodka should be free from any off flavour or aroma derived from its basic ingredients. As distillation technology has improved, it has become possible to remove almost all flavours in this neutral spirit. Although vodka can be made from any sugar source, the vast majority of vodka world-wide is grain based. Grain is generally considered to yield the best and most neutral flavour and is therefore considered closest to the ideal of a truly neutral spirit.
In crafting Strait Vodka we start with a Canadian pure grain alcohol. This vodka grade spirit is further distilled twice. In this manner we create a truly triple distilled and pure vodka.
In our opinion, Strait Vodka has an exceptionally smooth and neutral flavour, with hints of natural sweetness that show its Canadian grain origins.
