Proof66 Notes

Bendistillery was founded in 1996, which is relatively early in the craft-distilling business and they regard themselves as one of the forerunners of the movement. It was founded with the express purpose of crafting gin and vodka made with natural ingredients and pure Cascade Mountain water.

Crater Lake Pepper vodka is named the giant caldera that is now Crater Lake. Their vodka is infused with six different sweet and hot peppers. Bendistillery suggests serving with a Bloody Mary or--oddly enough--mango juice and in different sauces for the artistic chefs. Note: the vodka was formerly known as Mount Mazama Pepper Vodka (which made a nice poetic reference to the fiery volcano paralleling the fiery peppers).

The 2012 Beverage Testing Institute called it a "must try" for Bloody Mary cocktails.
