Pinckney Bend American Vodka

American Vodka

Moving beyond a typical column distillation, we wanted to make a vodka that was more than just ‘without distinct character’. By using multiple methods and dutifully monitoring the process, we proved more is better.

Distilled in Small Batches

Most Vodkas use a single technique. To get a fuller taste, we expanded the traditional distillation process. Started in our pot still, then into our copper column still, our vodka is distilled multiple times in multiple ways to achieve an extremely smooth spirit with distinct character.

“Do Good. Drink Well.”

“Do Good. Drink Well.” That has been our motto for a long time, but we have to admit the last few years have felt helpless to “do good”. It seems we are again helpless as thousands, if not millions, of people fearing for their safety are fleeing their homes in Ukraine.

“Do Good. Drink Well.” That keeps echoing through our hearts. We are continually reminded by the words of our fellow ACSA members, Du Nord Social Spirits, that you should find out what you can do well, then do it. We are distillers. We make good spirits. So now we need to do more good.

We are determined to do what we do well, and do good with it. Starting immediately, we will be donating proceeds from our American Vodka to the World Central Kitchen. The WCK is working 24 hours a day at 8 pedestrian border crossings, as well as supporting local restaurants, preparing meals in five Ukrainian cities. WCK is also on the ground in Romania and Moldova, and soon to be in Slovakia and Hungary.

This amazing organization was founded in 2012 by Chef Jose Andres and is first to the front lines providing meals in response to a wide range of crises, while working to rebuild resilient food systems with locally led solutions. They have served over 60 million fresh meals for people in need.

This isn’t about selling more product. This isn’t about us at all. This is about doing what we can do well, and then doing good with it. We strive to be an example and hope you join us in supporting those in need by learning more about The World Central Kitchen and similar organizations. We can all collectively do more good.
