Proof66 Notes

Cold River prides itself on being a complete Maine product, "true to the heritage of of Maine agriculture, family farming, and the preservation of open space." The base alcohol is made from locally grown potatoes (from Green Thumb Farms) and crafted completely on site from "ground to glass." They place particular emphasis on using the whole potato in their fermentation rather than a processed potato starch--they claim the flavor comes primarily from the potato skin.

Cold River Blueberry Vodka is made with Wyman Maine Blueberries that they regard as smaller and more intensely flavored than those typically on the market. They add only 1% sugar where they claim other flavored vodkas are 12% to 15% added sugar. They are also proud to bottle their flavored vodka at a full 80 proof where they say many are 70 proof or lower. They suggest sipping on the rocks to enjoy the aroma.

The vodka has a lovely aroma... even opening the bottle from 18 inches away fills the room with a blueberry smell. When you bury your nose in it, the smell is like a real blueberry with a hint of vegetation... not at all the eerily pure artificial aromas you get off of candy and others. The taste has a bit of bite on the tongue... I can't recommend this as a sipping vodka. The aftertaste, in particular, has a bit of an iodine finish. But adding a bit of water really softens the burn and opens up the flavor. As a mixing vodka, this has tremendous opportunity to enliven upscale cocktails. Highly recommend it on that basis.
