Pot/column premium vodka
The world’s first blended vodka? Maybe, who can keep track nowadays. What we do know is that what we have crafted here is quite unique. Through close relationships with the distillers and business owners who mash and distill these wonderful components, we have constructed a bold and unique vodka. Made of just two components, Pot/Column Vodka blends together the two main types of distillation methods: Pot Still and Column Still.

Boyd & Blair Potato Vodka – Glenshaw, PA
Distilled from locally sourced potatoes, Boyd & Blair utilizes Champagne yeast for their fermentation yielding a creamy, full bodied vodka. Since this artisanal vodka is distilled on a traditional pot still, they carry the motto “All Heart”, where the master distillery Barry Young prides himself on making the purest cuts with every distillation, and it shows. Their vodka is so unique, there is absolutely no harsh ethanol aroma or finish in their distillate that you might find on most mass produced vodkas (what we here at Forward/Slash call “hand-sanitizer scent”).

Copper Bottom Vodka – Holly Hills, FL
Distilled in small batches, Copper Bottom is a Florida-based demerara sugar distillery located just minutes from the Atlantic Ocean. They distill what we feel is one of the best vodkas being produced in the South at the moment. Their distillate is so clean and smooth, with a distinct minerality which we feel adds a solid backbone for our blend.
tree spoon gin
We feel that the world of Gin is so unique, there is almost as much nuance and diversity as there is in whiskey… almost, let’s not go crazy here. We searched throughout Florida to identify two incredible gin distillers that we feel complement each other quite nicely to create a complex gin we are proud to share with you.

Manifest Distilling – Jacksonville, FL
An organic gin from our friends in North Florida. Manifest Gin packs a juniper kick that reminds us of walking through a juniper patch in late summer. Bold, unapologetic and absolutely delicious, bartenders across the state know that Manifest is a gold standard gin on their back bars worthy to stand out in any cocktail.

Severessence Distilling Co – Tampa, FL
We met the master distiller for Severessence in a parking lot by a river. Nice. We were so blown away by the focus and elegance of this gin that we absolutely had to have it in our first batch. With balanced notes of wild flowers, citrus, and sweet coriander this gin provides the foundation that we were searching for. Cheers to meeting strangers in parking lots!
