Vodka - Wheat
High Ultra Premium Vodka
Rating DescriptionTier 3
This is a Tier 3 score in the Vodka category. It means critics recommended the spirit but it will be a value brand or have an exotic taste.
High Spirits is a company founded by Chris Lawson and Brad Wright who sought to create one brand of premium products that would serve as the entire bar.
High Vodka is made from winter wheat and corn from Idaho. The final product is said to be "smooth, sweet, and prec[ise]." It is blended down with water from a well in the Rocky Mountains.
While high Spirits owns and manages the brand--and while we ourselves at Proof66 would've guessed a different Idaho distillery as the source--it is filed with the US Tax and Trade Bureau with the Temperance Distilling Company in Michigan, whom we've listed here as the owner.
The 2011 Beverage Testing Institute found notes of raspberry and similar flavors calling it a "pleasant, almost berry flavored vodka."
