Our Humble Roots
For many years, we sold our vodka products one tasting and one bottle at a time. Our traditional tasting room featured a lounge atmosphere front bar where customers could sample our products while watching vodka production in the back. After trying samples free of charge customers purchased bottles of their favorite products. Over a five year period, we conducted more than 5,000 tastings and taught more than 500 martini classes. During this time period, we captured a front row viewpoint of what vodka customers were really looking for. Over time, we grew out of our tasting room and moved to a commercial beverage production setting. Our original lounge concept still exists, long under new retail ownership branded as The Copper Still, in Homewood Illinois.
