Review: Charbay Pomegranate Vodka

Charbay Pomegranate vodka - CopyCharbay Pomegranate vodka is one of six flavored vodka’s the Karakasevic family crafts in Napa Valley with their unflavored vodka as a base.  It is crafted with Midwest grown corn and rye.  They use 660 gallon still along with a proprietary distillation process, and distill to 192 proof.  Pure spring water that has been filtered to 3 PPM purity is used to reduce the proof.  One batch of Pomegranate is made each year with organically grown tree ripe pomegranate at a family farm in Central California.  Charbay only uses Wonderful Pomegranates, the sweetest and juiciest variety, and the only ones POM uses for their Pomegranate juice.  The pomegranates are pressed at the orchard and rushed to the distillery.  The flavor and color extraction process takes six months.  The extraction is then gently blended with the vodka and it is bottled at 70 proof.
