Produced in micro batches by the Rheault family in their 4,000-square-foot home, the Loon Vodka is what's called alpha vodka (which is gluten free even though it is wheat based). It's distinguished by exacting standards established in Russia some 400 years ago - but today, practiced by just six distilleries in the world. Rheault Distillery is the only one outside of Russia and Poland.
The distilling process is rigorous. It starts with 1,000 litres of spring water drawn from a single 30-foot sand well, fed by three underground veins. At the Rheault facility, alpha vodka production consists of a six-day-long, quintuple distilling process, which includes a feature that stops almost everyone in their tracks - that is, the addition of 30 litres of milk in the final distillation process.
Discover all there is to know about this process by visiting the Rheault Distillery. During this visit, you will learn how a simple grain gets turned into vodka or whiskey, right inside the Rheault family home! The visit will be followed by a tasting, where you will get to try their amazing liquors, including the famous Sinful Cherry.
