Charbay v. Mother Nature!

Charbay wins!

If you’ve turned on the teevee at all this month, you know that Cali got hit hard by a deep freeze that wiped out its citrus crops. To the tune of $800-million bucks, it seems.

Bad news for those of us who like some fresh juices in our cocktails. But not everyone’s so unlucky.

Just days before the cold snap, Charbay‘s master distiller, Marko Karakasevic, picked up four tons of Meyer lemons from the grower. Charbay distills its fruited vodkas using real fruits instead of chemical compounds that mimic fruit flavor, so it’s important to get good produce. Without this shipment, Charbay wouldn’t have been able to produce its Meyer Lemon vodka this year.

  1. And those Meyer Lemons ROCK! While I was extracting them, I got amazing spice and tropical flavors out. This batch of Charbay Meyer Lemon Vodka is going to be great. It should be availible in April for sure.

  2. Technical question here – hope I’m not being too picky. Does Charbay distill its vodkas with fresh fruits or /infuse/ them? I’ve had a bottle of their Meyer Lemon Vodka and it is indeed amazing.
