Review: Snow Leopard Vodka

Snow Leopard Vodka was created by Stephen Sparrow and launched in 2006.  It is crafted with spelt grain which is five times more expensive than wheat or rye.  Snow Leopard is small batch distilled six times and filtered through active charcoal at the Polmos Lublin Distillery in Poland.  Natural spring water from an onsite well is blended to reduce to 80 proof.  15% of all profits are given directly to conservation projects through the Snow Leopard Trust.

525 Reviews. Closing in on 100,000 Views. What’s Next?

Svedka Strawberry Lemonade Vodka - CopyCrown royal regal apple whisky - CopyOn October 30, 2013 I posted my first review and now a little more than 15 months and 525 reviews later, what’s next?  Unflavored vodka, and rum reviews, a focus on cocktails, and an occasional feature story.  While I will continue to review flavored spirits I plan on expanding my focus.  Five years ago I started with an idea and a bar and over time my bar grew, and my ideas changed.  After years of planning, and days of taking pictures of liquor bottles that were never good enough, I made the leap and started Best Tasting Spirits.  Now after months of literally no audience my viewership grows monthly and distillers are starting to send me their spirits for review.  Crown Regal Apple and Svedka Strawberry Lemonade were two of my favorite new spirits of 2014, and they were also two of my most visited reviews.  I recently started posting my reviews to Facebook and I would encourage readers to give me some feedback and suggestions on improving Best Tasting Spirits.  Don’t be afraid to disagree with a review.  Over time this site will evolve and I hope you will stick with me.
