INGREDIENTS

WINTER WHEAT



Aylesbury Duck is made from a soft 

white winter wheat sourced directly 

from local farmers in the Western 

Rockies of Canada (near Calgary).

REALLY REALLY CLEAN WATER 

We ship our vodka at 96.5% proof 

to our bottling facility in Northern 

California where we add water to 

bring Aylesbury Duck to its final 

proof of 80 (40% ABV). 

There are a few reasons for this:

1) Our friends at Domaine Charbay 

Distillers add the water for us. 

We have always been a huge fan 

of their work and trust their 

palates explicitly. 

2) The water they use comes from a 

well in Mendocino county and it is 

exceptionally pure (only 4 particles 

per million - we know, that means 

nothing to us either but according 

to the water experts that’s 

pretty clean). 

3) It reduces our carbon footprint. 

4) It tastes really good.

FILTRATION 

The only filtration used in the 

production of Aylesbury Duck is 

particle filtration (like with most 

spirits). We are sorry that we don’t 

have a fun story about filtering 

through carbon, diamonds and crystal, 

etc, but we felt the spirit from the 

still was good enough without this 

extra step.

AYLESBURY DUCK IS A CLEAN 

VODKA WITH A SPICY AND GRAINY 

CHARACTER MADE FROM SOFT 

WHITE WINTER WHEAT GROWN 

IN THE WESTERN ROCKIES OF 

CANADA.  WE TESTED THIS VODKA 

IN BLOODY MARY’S, MOSCOW 

MULES AND VARIOUS OTHER 

INFAMOUS MIXED DRINKS AND 

THE RESULT WAS ALWAYS RATHER 

PLEASANT.  ADD ANYTHING.

MAKING AYLESBURY DUCK

FERMENTATION 

Our distillers make their own mash 

and oversee the whole process from 

harvesting the wheat to the final 

distillation. 

The fermentation period for Aylesbury 

Duck is a standard three days which 

results in an ABV from 9.5-11%. 

Then it will go to the beer holding 

tank and into the beer still for 

distillation.

DISTILLED MANY MANY TIMES

Aylesbury duck is continuously 

distilled in three separate copper 

plated column stills that were built 

in the 1940s.

In still 1 (The Beer Still) we 

distill to 65% ABV. Then it’s moved 

onto stills 2 & 3, the rectifying 

stills, where it is distilled to the 

proof of 96.5% ABV*

*The water used in the distillation 

process is pristine Canadian glacial 

water, but we use a different water 

to cut the spirit down. There is no 

carbon treatment - we want vodka 

with character.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 

SPIRIT JOURNAL DECEMBER 2012

“Wheat. Column still. Translucent... 

Initial sniffs encounter delightfully 

dry toasted bread, breakfast cereal 

and Wheat Thin notes that are fully 

fleshed out and engaging immediately

further air contact brings our 

earthy/mineral scents that mesh 

well with the dry cereal aroma, 

specifically, earthy, minerally

and cereally...”.
