Karlsson's Single Batch 2009 Vodka Sweden
If you don’t know Karlsson’s Swedish vodka, you should. Distilled from a single variety of potato called Solist, only 1,980 bottles of this vintage-dated masterpiece were made. Vanilla and black pepper lure you in, while the spicy high notes bring the aromas full circle. The creamy texture balances the crispness of the alcohol on the palate and is boosted by a distinct, soft white pepper character. Luxury vodka doesn’t get much better, or rarer, than this.
Cape Bjäre (Bjärehalvön) is a little peninsula in southwest Sweden, much closer to Copenhagen than Stockholm. The cape is home to about 50 potato-farming families who in 2001 began to grow uneasy about encroaching golf courses and hotels as this sunny, beachfront corner of Sweden became a tourist destination. One farmer, Peter Ekelund, decided to create a grower's co-operative and a vodka brand to create permanent demand for a special type of potato, known locally as "Farmer's Gold." These beautiful new potatoes - a symbol to the Swedish people of their emergence from another long winter - are some of the best in the world.
Ekelund called up his friend Börje Karlsson, who was instrumental in the creation of Absolut vodka. Together they taste each year to determine which potato cultivar is optimal for that year's vodka production, and today this creamy, minerally, white-peppery vodka is a wonder to behold. Only 165 cases of this exceptional, vintage-dated vodka are produced each year.About Karlsson's
