Crater Lake Hatch Green Chile Vodka

Versatile and packed with heat, Crater Lake Hatch Green Chile vodka packs a dry heat reminiscent of the rugged Southwest. Notes of flavorful fire-roasted hatch green chiles blend with an assortment of peppers to create an undeniably delicious vodka. Elusive like the New Mexico hatch chile, we only make this vodka once a year around the chile harvest.
