MILANO GREEN Milano Green not only keeps Italy strong in the vodka world, but also helps keep the planet stronger, with environmentally safe produc- tion practices and a passion for sustainable initiatives benefi tting the communities around them. Even the print on the bottle is made entirely from crushed glass infused with minerals. Milano Green focused all their resources to bring together the purest ingredients and the fi nest distillers, who understand fl avor, fi nish and fi nesse. Their production methods avoid the over-processing that conventional brands use. Instead they opt for a unique triple-distilla- tion method and stay unfi ltered to preserve the character of the spirit. This ingredient-driven vodka is designed to waltz on your palate and fi nish with seductive smoothness. Currently available in NY and CT, Milano Green is made from pure Alpine water and wheat from the northern Italian plains and it is gluten and allergen free. The fi rst few seconds start with a strong grainy burst that quickly gives way to a fresh fi nish of mild citrus notes. It's refreshing as well as intriguing. Served on the rocks, a twist of lime or lemon will enhance the natural fl avors. Certainly a vodka snob's vodka! 57 Main Street Imports O NE ONE Vodka is fi ve-times- distilled, and crafted from a timeless recipe of Russian tradi- tion. ONE Vodka's smooth, clean characteristics are achieved by purifying a 100% winter wheat formula with birch-activated carbon and platinum fi ltration to remove impurities. The formula is then blended with crisp, clear water that has fi ltered through miles of granite and fl ows from the brand's own natural spring. Only the fi nest ingredients are included so that vodka connois- seurs can experience pure, silky soft texture and elegant, creamy palate in every glass of ONE. The brand's slogan, "We are ONE!" sums up the vibe of this new and unique vodka. Red Bing cherries on the nose light up the senses, while hints of white chocolate back it up on the nose. A wonderful creaminess slides to the back of the palate—completely without burn—carrying with it caramel, sage and milk chocolate. A touch of sea salt lingers on the tip of the tongue and stays through the fi nish. —Meridith May Distributors interested in representing ONE Vodka, please contact Patrick McNamara at Salveto Imports If this Category Report whetted your vodka palate, watch for our round-up of fl avored versions in the December issue! no ember 2 november 2012 / the tasting panel / 123
