Review: Leopolds Silver Tree American Small Batch Vodka

by Jeff Ellingson

Leopolds Silver Tree American Small Batch Vodka was introduced in 2001.  It is crafted at Leopold Bros. Distillery in Denver Colorado.  Founders Todd and Scott Leopold started brewing beer and now they craft distill Gins, Whiskies, Liqueurs, Aperitivo, Absinthe, and Amaro.  They malt their own barley and mill their grains.  Silver Tree Vodka is made from a unique blend of potatoes, malted barley, and summer wheat.  Seven separate small batch distillations through a 40 gallon copper Vendome Pot Still, finishing through a column still follow.  The vodka is lightly filtered before it is hand bottled and labeled with the batch number hand printed on each bottle.  The aroma is vanilla, caramel, and sweet potato.  The creamy sweet potato entry is joined by malted barley taste, building to a bright vanilla butterscotch peak.  It fades with runny caramel pastry flavor, and finishes semidry with vanilla bean and a sprinkle of cinnamon and black pepper.  This is a full flavored, well crafted vodka that is silky smooth.  Leopolds Silver Tree American Small Batch Vodka can be found on several Top Ten Vodka lists, and it certainly is on mine.
