Check out Highway Vodka, Houston's Premium Hemp Vodka Distillery.
The Highway Distillery believes that vodka should have a distinct character. They want you to experience the natural flavors of the spirit and the grains that produce them. Their vodka is a unique strain of hemp, locally sourced corn, and water from our artesian aquifer round out the grain bill of their mash that took them nearly eight years to perfect. After mashing, it is then transferred to the fermentation stage where it will sit for a period of one to one-and-a-half weeks. During that time, the hemp acts as a super fuel to the yeast, performing the conversion from sugars to alcohol. At the same time, a thick layer of hemp oil forms at the top of the fermenter. Finally, they throw everything in the fermenter into the still!
The use of hemp at The Highway Distillery helps provide a nuanced, balanced, unique spirit with a character unlike any other in the world. By using the plant from the very beginning of their process in the grain bill, the plant helps them throughout the entire process of producing their spirit. The myriad benefits derived from the use of hemp change throughout the process as the form of the plant changes. Meaning, depending on where they are in the process of making their spirit -- be it mashing, fermenting, distilling, or even filtering -- hemp is there doing something unique to create something unique. And most importantly, helping to create a phenomenal, easy drinking spirit unlike any the world has ever seen.
