Review: Square One Vodka

Review: Square One Vodka

Oddly enough, we’ve reviewed all of Square One’s flavored vodkas but never its straight, unflavored spirit, until now. Made in Idaho from 100% organic rye grown in North Dakota, this vodka has none of the funky rawness you might expect from a rye-based spirit, but is rather quite neutral and lightly sweet at first sip.

As the vodka develops in the glass it reveals more nuance, with more brown sugar character, honey, and vague pastoral elements — more amber waves of grain than the grist mill. Versatile and well-rounded, it’s an easy winner in a sea of just-OK vodkas.

    Any word if this is made in the same Rigby distillery that makes a couple differently branded potato vodkas?

    Hi Bob — (sorry for slow reply, we were on the road with events the past week!) We have a bespoke/proprietary program with Distilled Resources Inc. in Rigby, Idaho and I believe they produce some potato vodkas as well. Here’s a link to the Square One website that introduces our relationship with Distilled Resources.
