QURI Peruvian Vodka // 750 ml
High in the Andes of South America, quinoa is celebrated as Muru Quri, which means the Golden Grain in the ancient language of Quechua. This is where Quri Quinoa Vodka gets its name. "Quri" means "gold" in Quechua because quinoa was given to us by Pachamama (Mother Earth) and was crucial to the survival of the Incas. It is this deep and rich culture that inspires Quri Vodka to create a high quality spirit from the gifts of Pachamama in a socially and environmentally responsible way.
The process of crafting Quri Vodka starts with the best quinoa sourced from a Peruvian family farm located on Lake Titicaca next to a dormant volcano. The quinoa is transported to their distillery where they initiate the process by milling, cooking, and mashing the grain.
Then, in special 45 gallon fermenters, they ferment 5 different types of yeast strains which were hand selected to develop a more robust flavor profile. Once fermentation is complete, they slow distill a total of 3 times. The first two take place in traditional copper pot configuration and contribute to the end product’s smooth finish. The third distillation takes place in a vodka column standing over 20 feet tall, which helps produce a purity up to 96%.
In order to proof the vodka down to 40%, they add perhaps the second most important ingredient—glacier water sourced from the Andes. The final stage of the process is to drip filter the vodka over 3 days. This is done through two components: 1) activated carbon taken from coconuts and used to purify drinking water; 2) volcanic stone sourced from the volcano located next to the aforementioned quinoa farm.
