Proof66 Notes

Core Vodka is one of the few vodkas around distilled from apples... apple cider to be precise. The apples come fresh from the Hudson Valley third-generation family farm and Core can considered an "estate vodka." Using a 3-distillation process, they run the apple cider through to a proof sufficient to make vodka, blend it with water filtered through a reverse osmosis process, and then bottled. They claim it takes 2,000 gallons of apple cider to make 100 gallons of vodka (or 4 gallons of cider per bottle of vodka).

Amusingly, the website says, "We chose to use home grown apples for our vodka because we happen to grow a lot of them." We can just see these farmers sitting around on a harvest that they can't sell and thinking: "The heck with it, let's make vodka!!"

If honesty, sincerity, complexity, and sense of place mean anything to you - especially contrasting to the soulless oceans of other vodkas out there, buy this one.
