Humboldt Distillery Humboldt's Finest Vodka
The Humboldt Distillery is the creation of Abe Stevens, a fifth-generation Humboldt native. The small, craft distillery is located in Humboldt, CA among the mighty redwoods and fewer than a dozen miles from the Pacific Coast. So let's answer the big question first. Yes, it is infused with cannabis but it is totally THC-free so there are no effects beyond the alcohol impact of a traditional Vodka. The herbal influence is very well-integrated and in ideal balance. Most cannabis infused spirits I have sampled are not very appealing while Humboldt's Finest is gorgeous. Think of it as a Gin sans the juniper.
The Humboldt Distillery is the creation of Abe Stevens, a fifth-generation Humboldt native. After earning degrees in chemistry and biochemistry from the University of Chicago Stevens worked in the pharmaceutical industry doing research and development. His interests are many and diverse as Stevens also successfully dabbled in real estate investment and was even a tournament poker player. All of these great adventures could not surpass the draw of returning home to create organic, craft spirits. The Humboldt Distillery show great purity and depth. We can't wait to see what Stevens does next.
Brilliant, crystal clear. The aromatics are fresh and vibrant with waves of dried flowers, jasmine, English Thyme, lime zest, and fennel pollen with hints of mineral and cucumber. The palate fully confirms the nose delivering a soft and silky spirit core with waves of fresh and dried herbal notes accented by citrus, pepper, and mineral. Medium-bodied with superb balance and a well-proportioned herbal attack.
How to Serve
Sip chilled and certainly enjoy in a new classic martini employing a fruity Vermouth.
