Contrary to popular belief, vodkas can differ significantly between distilleries and not all vodkas are considered equal. These horrible rumors stem from everyone believing that vodka is solely derived from distillation of potatoes, it is a relatively cheap and/or it is just an easy spirit to produce. The truth is high-end vodkas are produced using a number of different origination ingredients but for Hammer & Sickle its freshly sown wheat that acts as the catalyst. During the creation process Hammer & Sickle is six-times filtered and six-times distilled making the spirit’s flavor sparklingly clean and expertly refined. If you’ve never had the pleasure of sampling a wheat based vodka before then you have done yourself an egregious disservice. Retailing for around $30 bottle, it’s hard to imagine ever again assaulting my girlfriend’s sweet tart shot with an inferior spirit again.
