Founded in 2011, Oola Distillery is located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. Owner and distiller, Kirby Kallas-Lewis produces hand-crafted gin, vodka, flavored vodkas and bourbon whiskey in small batches. White winter wheat is sourced from a third-generation Washington family farm that’s certified organic and Salmon-Safe and the Hungarian Goathorn peppers Kirby uses for his flavored vodka are grown in Yakima Valley. He grinds, mills, ferments and distills his spirits in house. The distillery is named after Kirby’s German shepherd, Oola.
Nose of citrus with hints of peppers, layers into vanilla and a clean, zesty finish. Definitely a surprise for vodka. Stands out on its own and mixes nicely with citrus cocktails and a vodka martini – with a twist.
Gold, MicroLiquor Awards – “Overall, an exceptional tasting vodka.”
