100 Point Grand Vodka Master & Vodka of the Year: Purity® Vodka has been awarded more than 100 Gold Medals by experts in the top blind tasting competitions around the world. With its heritage based in the 13th century Ellinge Castle in southern Sweden, Purity® Vodka began from Master Blender Thomas Kuuttanen's lifelong quest to redefine the vodka category. The heart of Purity® Vodka is distilled 34 times using a specially designed still made of copper and gold, creating a spirit so refined that no filtration is necessary.
Created from estate grown winter wheat and barley, Purity Vodka is produced in a proprietary pot still at Ellinge Castle in the south of Sweden. Unlike other vodka producers, Purity has developed a still designed specifically for vodka production. During its thirty-four distillations, ninety percent of the distillate is lost. The remaining spirit is so refined that no filtration is necessary, which retains the character, body and smoothness of the pot still distillation. After distillation, the heart of the spirit is blended with the very finest organic wheat spirit and reduced to 40% ABV with natural, mineral-rich water from the castle's artesian well. Smooth, full-bodied and loaded with character, Purity Vodka is an ultra-premium vodka brimming with distinctive mineral notes, complemented by delicate tones of white chocolate, vanilla and liquorice.
Purity Vodka has, together with the renowned engineer Leif Nerhammar, developed a still designed specifically for vodka production. The still has a mash volume limited to 600 liters (158 US gallons) and allows the distiller up to 65,536 settings to the recipe when distilling.This process can only be carried out in small batches, is both labor intensive and demanding, but the result is unsurpassed. During the thirty-four distillations, ninety percent of the liquid is lost and only the ”perfect cut” is selected as the heart of Purity® Vodka. This final spirit, reaching 96% vol. (192 Proof), is so refined that no filtration is necessary, thus leaving all the natural flavours and character in the vodka.The refined spirit is then carefully reduced by using a mix of deionised water and natural, mineral rich water, and blended with tailor made organic column spirits which are made from the very finest wheat.
