Each of our premium hand-crafted spirits is distilled in small batches and undergoes constant and rigorous quality assurance and quality control checks at every stage of production. Each batch is personally tasted and approved by our founders, Brock and Dimitri, before release for sale.
DRINKLAB HOP VODKA™
DRINKLAB HOP VODKA brings vodka and gin lovers together, pairing the clean pure taste of our premium vodka with delicate gin-like botanicals. It is five-times distilled in small batches using the highest quality Ontario corn and carefully blended with West Coast hops. The result is a deliciously smooth vodka with extraordinary taste, smooth, creamy, and slightly sweet, featuring notes of citrus zest and pine.
Vodka Hopped UP™
Here are some ideas for how to serve DRINKLAB HOP VODKA. But don't stop here. The only limit is your imagination.
In a highball glass filled with ice combine 1 1/2 oz DRINKLAB HOP VODKA and 4 oz fresh lemonade. Stir and then float 2 oz Blue Cold Brew. Garnish with grapefruit wedge or zest.
Blue Cold Brew: Combine 1 thumb-sized piece of thinly sliced ginger, 4 torn mint leaves or 1 mint tea bag, and 1/8 cup butterfly pea flowers with 2 L of cold water. Steep for 24 hours. Strain and transfer to serving container.
Combine 1 oz DRINKLAB HOP VODKA, 1/2 oz Campari, and 1/2 oz Lillet Blanc in a cocktail shaker with ice. Stir well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a twist of orange peel.
Fill a cocktail glass with ice. Pour 4 oz Prosecco, Cava, or Champagne over the ice. Add 1/2 oz DRINKLAB HOP VODKA, 1/2 oz Aperol, and 1 oz soda water. Gently stir. Garnish with grapefruit wedge or zest.
In a cocktail shaker add 1 1/2 oz DRINKLAB HOP VODKA, 1 tsp matcha powder, 1 oz fresh lemonade, and 1 dropper saline or pinch sea salt. Shake well until matcha is fully dissolved. Add 4 oz soda and stir. Strain into a chilled wine glass filled with ice. Garnish with a slice of cucumber.
