Proof66 Notes

Hangar One vodkas are made with a blend of column still vodka made from midwestern wheat (apparently acquired through contract) and their own craft-distilled voigner grape-based vodka made in their pot still in small batches. The distillery blends the voigner grape spirit in order to bring out greater flavor without adding any sort of "alcoholic taste." They are very proud of their additive-free vodka, where they suggest many other "premium" vodkas contain sugars and other additives to conceal harsh, alcohol tastes.

Despite the blend with wheat-based vodka, we have opted to list Hangar One as a grape-based vodka to better reflect the vision and purpose of the spirit. In 2013, they redesigned their packaging though the formula is the same. 

We had the opportunity to taste Hangar One at the 2012 Distill America event in Madison. In a spirit class where it's difficult to distinguish one's self, hangar One's neutral vodka comes out clean, flavorful, and rewards the extra effort to find and purchase.

Hangar One was founded by St George Spirits, who sold the brand to Proximo Spirits in 2010. St George continues to produce the vodka by contract for Proximo.

Hangar One is not the smoothest vodka I've ever had, but it has a slightly sweet taste to it which sets it apart from a lot of other vodkas. I haven't mixed it yet, but I like it straight. You can get it for around $30 where I am, which seems just about right.
