GRAIN-TO-GLASS SPIRITS Oola Distillery produces small batches of gin, vodka, flavored vodkas and bourbon whiskey. This is the real deal-spirits made with a sense of place and a connection to the people who grew the raw ingredients and the man who coaxed them into their more spirited forms-gins in which you can taste the botanicals, distinctive vodkas, and bourbon whiskey flavorful and smooth. OUR DISTILLER For Oola owner and distiller, Kirby Kallas-Lewis, Oola is a labor of love, intellectual curiosity and commitment to the neighborhood he has called home for more than two decades. Kirby has been studying the art and science of distilling intensively. He has participated in numerous workshops, tastings, and conferences on the topic of craft distilling by some of the leaders in the industry. A former artist and tribal art dealer, Kirby has long been interested in the power that great food, wine, art, cocktails and entertaining have in connecting people to each other and to a place.
OOLA Distillery Citrus Vodka is produced using hand-harvested lemon verbena grown by our founder and head-distiller. The lemon verbena is infused the same morning it is harvested to capture its full bouquet of essential oils. Our vodkas are filtered once using minimal charcoal to retain the character of locally-sourced grain, while columnar distillation ensures a superior clarity and sharply-focused structure. A finely-textured finish with notes of caramel and vanilla.
NOSE: Bright forward notes of lemon, and hints of lime.
PALATE: Citrus peel on the palate followed by fresh lemon verbena perfume.
FINISH: Undertones of a more herbal lemon verbena keeps things interesting in a well-balanced finish.
