NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The best things in life are crafted, not made. Moon Mountain Vodka is the liquid embodiment of that belief. The new, artisanally crafted, USDA Certified Organic vodka is produced in the Midwest and made from only organic ingredients. Moon Mountain Vodka is triple distilled in small batches ensuring a unique character and superior quality.
The story of Moon Mountain Vodka began when its Master Distiller, Gerry Webb, visited the Moon Mountain Vineyard in Sonoma County. After experiencing the vineyard's all organic, artisanally-crafted wines, Webb began a quest to develop something no other distiller had done before: a vodka that mimics the craftsmanship and attention to detail of the specialty winemaking process.
From farm to bottle, Moon Mountain Vodka is made using all organic ingredients grown in Minnesota and Indiana. These grains are locally sourced, harvested and mashed to ensure that only the best corn is used in the fermentation process. Webb specially designed every step of distilling the vodka at a Midwest distillery using a small batch copper pot still. The final product is bottled in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.
The Moon Mountain Vodka bottle is a visual tribute to the heritage and artisanal personality behind the spirit's origin. A copper cap reflects the importance of the vodka's copper pot still origins. The bottle's unique shape pays homage to the winemaking process and invites spirit connoisseurs to enjoy the quality of Moon Mountain as they would a fine wine.
"My inspiration for Moon Mountain Vodka came from the artistry involved in producing excellent wine. By utilizing that art form, I developed a vodka with notes, smoothness and character that I believe spirits enthusiast and fine palates alike will enjoy," said Gerry Webb, master distiller of Moon Mountain Vodka. "I am truly privileged to bottle a vodka embodying the same craftsmanship. Of course, I ask that everyone enjoys responsibly."
Moon Mountain Vodka is available nationwide and is made in America. Moon Mountain Vodka has a suggested retail price of $19.99 and is available in liquor stores nationwide. For additional information, please visit www.MoonMountainvodka.com.
