A group of vodka connoisseurs have compiled a list of the best brands of vodka in the world. They've done so using their diverse team's expertise, which includes experience in flavor profiling, the distillation process, ingredients, mixology, and brand development. The 10 Best Vodka team is made up of individuals "whose experience with the vodka industry spans generations," according to their website. Judges for the competition also include distillers from multiple Gold and Double Gold vodka brands. The team also utilizes a computer program that couples with their years of expertise in the industry to increase impartiality during the ranking process. 10 Best Vodka has sister websites compiling top ten lists of the best rum, cognac, and gin brands, and the team plans to add tequila as another category as well as partition the rankings into subcategories.
The first of the Best Vodka Brand Award goes to Crystal Head Vodka from Newfoundland, Canada. This vodka wins for its pure distillation and production process. According to the team, "corn and peaches are mixed together up to four times in purified water that is derived from remote springs in the Newfoundland province of Canada." The team adds ascertains that “no artificial sweeteners are ever added to enhance the all natural taste."
The runner-up award goes to Ice Fox Vodka based in San Francisco, CA. 10 Best Vodka determines that Ice Fox Vodka is "made from top quality premium American corn from some of America's finest farms, giving the vodka a faintly sweet aftertaste. When the corn has finished going through a careful fermentation process, water from California's Sierra Mountains is used for a pure, fresh and crisp flavor. The Ice Fox master distiller tests each vodka production run before bottling to assure a superb and exquisite vodka."
Third place is Tito's Handmade Vodka, hailing from Austin, TX. It is one of the oldest and largest distilleries in Texas. The vodka is made in small batches so the flavors can fuse together and concoct a rich taste. It is distilled six times in order to guarantee the best results.
