The quality of the water dictates the quality of the Vodka. Vodkas' 1st law. When we discovered an underground water source in New Zealand that was 26,000 years old we knew this was something purely special. For 260 centuries this isolated reserve of paleowater had been hidden away and protected from any human tampering or interference. When the last ice age ended and colossal glaciers retreated towards the South Pole this water became entrapped and spent the next 26,000 years a constant natural purification process. The location of this unique aqua spring is secret but we share the purity of this water in our 26000 Vodka.
We don't claim to be saints but we do try to live honestly, and don't interfere with the natural way of things. We expect the same from our suppliers, so we demand GE-free grains. 26000 Vodka is a true grain vodka distilled from selected GE Free New Zealand grains chosen by our Stillmaster, Warryn Bermingham. The grains are batch fermented within the 26000 Vodka Distillery in Nelson, New Zealand. The natural grains provided our vodka with unique full-bodied grain flavour and a super smooth taste.
Ground down over centuries in the pounding West Coast surf of New Zealand, nature has provided us our quartz beach sand which we use as the perfect primary filter for our Vodka. 26000 Vodka is essentially purified by New Zealand. We make 26000 Vodka here in New Zealand... a place we love.
In the 18th Century Russians discovered charcoal filtration as a method to purify their vodka. We use this same traditional method of purification today. Our vodka is triple filtered through charcoal that comes from the rugged West Coast of New Zealand. The distilled grain vodka resulting from this special filtration process is honest, classic and pure.
Machines do not have hearts. Men do. Which is why craftsmen built our copper distillery by hand, and why we oversee the entire production ourselves, from beginning to end. Every single step in the process of creating 26000 Vodka involves hand technology, even filling each original bottle. It all works to create the human touch... the heart. Warryn Bermingham learnt the fine art of making vodka from Polish master distillers. Ken Telfar developed his love for crisp, clean vodka through years spent in the hospitality industry. Their dedication, passion and a little bit of luck, has produced arguably the World's purest vodka... 26000 Vodka.
Pure, potent, soft and soulful, with a smooth lingering finish. Pay attention to the interior glass walls and you will notice the unique imperfections of your individual, distinctive and sophisticated bottle. No two bottles of 26000 are the same. The subtle icey tones of 26000 vodka refract off these imperfections to give every bottle its own character and personality.
