Proof66 Notes

Blue Heron Vodka is what they call a "bourbon drinker's vodka" because the grain bill is a mix of corn and wheat (a "wheated bourbon" recipe to our mind) and bottled unfiltered (most vodka is given a charcoal filtration prior to bottling). It is blended down with Kentucky limestone spring water so prized for to whiskey drinkers. Co-founder Shane Baker mentioned to us that the vodka is meant to be enjoyed neat with bourbon in mind. The umlaut in the label is a nod to the founder's rock-and-roll band from years gone by

Blue Heron vodka was awarded a Gold Medal at the 2015 SIP Awards (out of a total of 13 gold medals awarded in a field of 34 vodkas).

Wilderness Trail Distillery is located in Danville, Kentucky managed by Shane Baker and Pat Heist. They are a "grain to glass" distillery in that they grind the grain, ferment the mash, then distill and bottle all on site. They note that the grain is all sourced with a few miles of the distiller itself.
