Surrounded by historic, premier Napa and Sonoma grapes, Hanson was inspired to create their own local, socially conscious, American vodka that met strict standards for taste and quality by using premium varietal grapes. Using only the finest ingredients, Hanson works closely with certified organic farmers, the gluten intolerance group, the non-gmo project and 1% for the planet to ensure the quality of the grapes, the ingredients, the facility and the business practices.

Hanson of Sonoma Organic vodka was introduced in 2013. It is one of six vodka’s the Hanson family crafts in the heart of wine country, Sonoma California. The other flavors include ginger, cucumber, espresso, boysenberry, and the previously reviewed mandarin. The vodka is small batch distilled with organic Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and French Colombard grapes, and pure Artesian well water using a pot and column still that uses 50 distillation plates. The vodka undergoes a proprietary seven stage filtration before bottling in a signed, numbered, and corked bottle.The aroma is fresh crushed grape. There is a soft mineral feel with a light grape taste. The grape flavor builds as it warms in my mouth before fading with a long peppery sting. The finish is crisp and clean with mineral taste joining the grape. This is a well crafted vodka that proves Sonoma can create a vodka just as tasty as their wine.
