There’s something special about the Sunshine Coast — the freedom, simplicity and a sense of clarity. It’s pure, fresh and crystal clear — like a great vodka.
The Sunshine & Sons Original Vodka base spirit is distilled from the very best Barossa Valley grapes, which results in a smooth purity and roundness on the palate.
This vodka is distilled very slowly using proprietary techniques and copper pot stills which allows us to enhance and develop the bonds or congeners within the distillate.
The pure elements of the spirit are enhanced with defined and generous cuts of the head and tails, patient slow pot distillation and the passage of the spirit through a dephelegmator. The overall effect has extremely subtle and balanced mineral, pepper and very subtle chilli notes.
As the final step bottling, the vodka is gravity filtered through ancient local volcanic rocks of different sizes. Relatively high in natural magnesium oxide the volcanic rock adds extra depth, texture and uniqueness. This filtration method is incomparable to most others, giving the Vodka a unique texture and structure. The impact on the palate is spectacular.
Sunshine & Sons Original Vodka is of a very few craft Vodkas that is bottled at 43% ABV allowing the spirit to present to the consumer’s palate at the distiller’s chosen point of perfect balance. It’s also naturally gluten free.
