Vodka - Corn
Buckeye Handcrafted Vodka
This is a Tier 1 score in the Vodka category. It means the spirit has won the highest recommendation at least once and probably many times.
Buckeye Vodka is the brand from Crystal Spirits and made as an homage to the state of Ohio. The vodka is made from American grown grain--we presume corn but are not certain--and distilled in their continuous column still for a smooth and consistent product. They are particularly proud of the fact of distilling the water that is used to blend down the vodka for purity, rightly noting that 80 proof vodka is composed of 60% water.
Crystal Spirits is a distillery in Ohio founded by Jim Finke, Chris Finke, Tom Rabasek, and Marty Clarke. All four have Ohio roots with the Finke family going back four generations. Part of their business model was to create a new business to help the struggling economy of Ohio.
