Welcome to Our B(ooze) Log
Napa Valley Distillery’s master blender and fearless leader, Arthur Hartunian, has fused the essence of two of our most popular spirits, Napa Reserve and Meyer Lemon Variety. The result is something even more spectacular: Meyer Lemon Vodka. It is naturally flavored with organic, hand-peeled Meyer lemon zest. Its richness and smoothness are reminiscent of our Napa Reserve, yet it’s subtle and elegant like our Meyer Lemon Variety. It is a truly unique spirit unto itself.
This delicate sipper is first in a infinite line of our sipping Table Spirts, several of which will be released in 2017. Sipping or Table Spirits excite the palate with single natural flavors such as Ginger, Tarragon, or Dill and are meant to be enjoyed slightly chilled, neat, and paired with food. We suggest pairing our Meyer Lemon Vodka with a wide variety of scrum-diddily-umptious foods such as broiled salmon with tarragon, any assortment of smoked fish, deviled eggs, buratta and heirloom tomato salad, or wild rice salad. The pairing possibilities are endless. What is more exciting is that this rst batch is reserved exclusively for you, our loyal Club Members. ough we certainly plan on making more in 2018, this batch is yours! So drink up, and enjoy! …responsibly, of course.
A Victorian-Era Tiki Drink
When the sun didn’t set on the British Empire and they were busy ruling over the East Indies, fantasy surrounded that foreign land. Capturing the imagination of a bartending Yank, East India became the inspiration for this Victorian-age cocktail. e rst recipe was published in 1882, and its sweet fruit avor is reminiscent of what we know today as Tiki Cocktails. The recipe has changed a bit since rst being published, but here at Napa Valley Distillery, we love to rediscover a cocktail’s origins. We have cra ed this oak-infused cocktail from California Brandy, housemade Orange Curaçao, real Blackberry Syrup, and Blood Orange Bitters. It’s easy to enjoy! Just shake with ice and serve up with a lemon twist.
