Proof66 Notes

American Star Ghost Chili vodka is flavored by the most famously spicy chili of them all. It is smoked prior to the infusion, lending a kind of smoky air to the vodka (and, we presume and the producers strongly endorse, particularly punchy in a Bloody Mary cocktail).

American Star vodka is made from a base of American-grown corn. This implies to us a slightly sweeter flavor profile that will appeal particularly to fruit-forward cocktails. They use what they mysteriously describe as an "innovative" and proprietary filtration process to smooth out the flavor. They suggest looking for hints of oak on the finish.

Ascendant Spirits was founded in Santa Barbara, California in 2011 by Stephen Gertman. They regard themselves as the first (legal) distillery in the county since (the awful and backward times of) Prohibition. They use a 500 gallon small batch copper pot still (as opposed to larger scale continuous column stills), which should appeal to those who like the more subjective and artistic approach to spirits distillation.
