The interesting thing about this Vodka is that the raw materials are not grain, rice or potato, but apples. According to the distillery it takes three bushels of apples to make three gallons of cider to distil into one 75cl bottle of Vodka. So with approximately 100 apples to the bushel, they believe that there are 300 apples in each bottle. They distil their Vodka three times, then blend it with spring water and finally it is cold filtered through charcoal and bottled by hand.

So why is it called General John Stark? Well it honours a New Hampshire legend. Apparently he was a famous American General that led the first New Hampshire Regiment in the American Civil War and saw action at Bunkers Hill and at the battles of Trenton and Princetown with General George Washington. He also led the New Hampshire forces at the battle of Bennington during the War of Independence. He is also known for his famous drinking toast of “Live free or die; death is not the worst of evils”

So what does it taste like? The nose is quiet dense and soft with hints of citrus, vanilla and botanicals. There are no harsh edges to the aromas and it is balanced by a granity crispness. The palate is dense and has a pleasant sweetness along with a hint of citrus and that granity crispness. Lovely intensity with a slight oily finish.
