Crater Lake Vodka

Pure Cascade Mountain water sets this vodka apart from the rest. Inspired by Crater Lake’s crystal waters, we filter our vodka ten times through charcoal and crushed lava rock. The result is an exceptionally smooth, crisp, and clean spring water taste with a hint of buttery vanilla.
