THL: What is it?
Vermont White tastes more like a traditional vodka than its sister product, Vermont Gold Vodka, which is made from maple sap.
THL: Why should you try it?
If you have any lactose intolerant friends in your life, this may be as close as they get to drinking milk. Vermont White Vodka is produced from 100% milk sugar from local Vermont farms. The vodka itself tastes nothing of milk, and actually has a clean crispness with only a hint of sweetness.
Vermont Spirits got their inspiration to craft Vermont White Vodka from a traditional spirit of the Tuvan culture of Russia, who also make a milk-sugar spirit. Vodka from milk may sound strange, but, if you’re willing to be adventurous, you may be pleasantly surprised.
THL: Who makes it?
Vermont Spirits makes handcrafted spirits near the New Hampshire border . The distillers are proud to be from the Green Mountain State, and source many of their ingredients locally.
THL: What does it taste like?
The flavor of the White Vodka seems dusted with powdered sugar and vanilla, and leaves a pleasant spicy tingle on the tongue.
THL: How should you drink it?
While milk/cream cocktails can be difficult to pull off properly, the White Hound perfectly pairs the mildly sweet Vermont White Vodka and includes the chai fanatics dream spirit, Voyant Chai Cream Liqueur.
1/2 ounce Vermont White Vodka
1-1/2 ounces Voyant Chai Cream Liqueur
4 ounces 2% milk
Add all ingredients to cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake for 15-20 seconds. Strain into chilled cocktail glass.
Makes for a perfect White Russian, dude.
