Alaska Distillery Purgatory

Alaska Distillery Purgatory is made from hemp seed

Alaska Distillery Purgatory

Alaska Distillery Purgatory is billed as the first hemp seed vodka in the United States. Hailing from Wasilla, Alaska (Palin country), this micro-distillery marries Alaskan glacier water with Canadian hemp seeds and then filters it through a charcoal process for clarity and purity. The result is a vodka with a clean, crisp, nutty and refreshing taste that may get you drunk but not stoned. Although launched into the world on 4/20 (which is code for smoking marijuana), it contains no psychoactive ingredients or aftertaste. This is a pure spirit from a renewable and sustainable source that is true to its flavors and aromas. It's an every-day vodka with an unusual grain mash and fabulous mouthfeel. The distillery also produced a smoked salmon flavored vodka!

Price: $45
