Quartz Vodka


TWITTER: @Seb_Blog

Just before the holidays I received a nice care package from Domaine Pinnacle. Included in the package was a bottle of Quartz Vodka, Ungava Gin and Chic-Choc spiced Rum. I brought the bottles to different parties I was attending and get family and friends to try it and get some feedback from them. The Quartz Vodka was nice and smooth it can be drank neat, on ice or in cocktails.

Quartz Vodka is made from one of the purest water in the world the ESKA water. The only water in the world derived exclusively from an esker ( an underground source created by the retreat of Northern Quebec glacier 8000 years ago.) ESKA is naturally filtered by the Quartz present in the esker Saint Mathieu-Lac Berry. It’s sodium free and contains a very low concentration of minerals with a perfectly balance PH.

Made from a selection of superior quality grain, Quartz Vodka is micro distilled five times which insures a exceptional smooth taste. Quartz is then cryo treated and micro filtered with quartz to offer a silky taste free of impurity.

Quartz Vodka is produced in small batches and every step is calculated to maintain the highest level of production standard under the supervision of Quartz Vodka master distiller.

Everyone who tried it was surprised this was a Quebec made vodka. It is very smooth and you can drink it on ice without the overwhelming taste of alcohol. If you prefer cocktails, here’s a few recommended by Quartz but in all honesty I haven’t tried them as I prefer to have my vodka with soda. They do look pretty good and easy to make and I’m sure you can find one of your favorites in this list.
