Vodka - Wheat
Krü 82 Vodka
This spirit has yet to face the slings and arrows of the rating agencies.
Kru 82 Vodka is bottled in a stainless steel bottle--highly unusual in the industry (particularly where highly marketed premium vodkas come in increasingly delicate and decorated bottles). It is billed, because of the bottle, as the "go anywhere vodka." The top includes a black strap and carabiner on top. It is a wheat-based vodka blended to a slightly higher 82 proof (the more typical vodka being 80). The container is reusable and meant to appeal the green movement as well as the outdoor movement. They claim the bottle is shatter proof and 100% free of bisphenol. (From the write-up in the Tasting Panel Magazine, March, 2011.) They suggest that Kru 82, because of its unique bottle design (that is, unbreakable), is particularly well-suited for pool-side service.
In 2013, they released an alternative glass bottle to be more friendly to bartenders (presumably not at the pool) providing consumers the choice.
The label is owned by Kru Spirits but appears to be made in the Netherlands, which we have listed as the source for the vodka.
