Green Chile Vodka
We make this vodka from a variety of California-grown hot and sweet peppers (jalapenos, Serranos, habaneros, red and yellow bell peppers) that build layers of sweet, savory heat. Lime peel and fresh cilantro add even more vibrancy and depth of flavor.
To make our Green Chile Vodka, we fill our 1,500-liter still with crushed jalapeno peppers, lime peel, and a non-GMO base spirit and distill this through a Carter head assembly that has been layered with fresh cilantro.
We infuse the other four types of peppers (Serrano, habanero, red and yellow sweet bell peppers) separately, and then blend each infusion with the distillate of jalapenos, lime, and cilantro. We then filter to remove visible impurities before bottling—the light green tint that remains is the result of the pepper infusion we perform just prior to filtration.
Think boozy salsa fresca! Fresh, sweet, and bright—with just enough capsicum punch to make sure that you know we crushed tens of thousands of pounds of green jalapenos to make it.
The sweet/savory heat makes it ideal for the perfect Bloody Mary, a Moscow Mule with extra kick, a zesty Gimlet, or whenever you’re craving something fresh and spicy in your glass.
