Proof66 Notes

High Spirits Prickly Pear vodka is made from the Prickly Pear, which is itself a kind of fruit from a flowering nopalese cactus and is a bright royal purple color. In a nice write-up at All Recipes, they call the flavor something between natural bubble-gum flavor and watermelon. The vodka itself itself is a pale pink and very lightly sweetened with agave.

High Spirits Distillery bills itself as the "highest altitude distillery" around at 7,000 feet. It also claims to be the only legal distillery in Arizona. It was founded by the owners of the Mogollon Brewing company Dave Williamson and Dana Kanzler. Sadly, it appears the distillery has closed with the products and know-how moving over to Canyon Diablo Spirits.

It's wonderful to run across a flavored vodka that has a great story to match a great taste. This is one of those. I got a chance to try this neat and in a Cosmopolitan at a resort in Sedona, Arizona. The stuff is made right up the road in Flagstaff. This smells like a charming mixture of strawberry, honeydew, and bubblegum. But it's subtle... a presence of aroma without being overpowering. Tasting, it's just a hint sweetened and a subtlety of flavor to match the aroma. In the cocktail, the aroma mingled with the drink without overpowering it. It's just a perfect flavored vodka: it elevates a drink without becoming the drink. If you can find a bottle of the stuff, it's definitely worth a taste and a purchase.
