Vodka is simply become the spirit of the day as well as night. The problem is there are so many brands and so many drinks that you can lost in an a sea of vodka bottles. The key with vodka, like anything in life is the quality of the ingredients and how it is made. If quality is your thing, and why would it not be, Reyka is the vodka for you.
Reyka is one of the smoothest and cleanest tasting vodkas in the world and it all starts with the artic spring water that runs through a 4,000 year-old lava field. They then complete the process by distilling Reyka in one of the few Carter-Head stills in the world. The high copper level in the Carter-Head still truly makes a huge difference in taste. Reyka also chooses to make their vodka in small batches, which also makes a difference when it comes to the quality of vodka that they produce.
Reyka is simply so smooth that you don’t need to add anything to it, you can simply enjoy it straight to get that perfect vodka flavor. But the fun of vodka is what a mixologist can do with it. Reyka Vodka Ambassador, Trevor Schneider has been on the hunt for the perfect espresso martini and his journey recently brought him to Los Angeles and The Eveleigh on Sunset Boulevard. Trevor just may have found that perfect martini as The Eveleigh created a sublime version that will be tough to surpass in flavor. The recipe is simple and simply perfect.
