Item Description

As you learn how to cook and craft cocktails while safely staying home, enjoy these three very special spirits and a baseball cap from Blinking Owl Distillery.

The Blinking Owl is the very first craft distillery in Orange County. They also are one of the first distilleries in the state of California to hold the Type 74 Craft Distillers License allowing them to operate our tasting room and sell a few bottles. They make Vodka, Gin, several types of Whiskey, and the Scandinavian spirit, Aquavit.

42.5% ABV (85 PROOF)

Blinking Owl Vodka has stunning earthiness, subtle flavor and rich, full-bodied mouth feel. Distilled in house from organic wheat grown in California, and their unique twist from the organic malted barley that was added to the mash bill adding hints of sweet vanilla and caramel. Distilled in their Carl still from Germany (that includes 34 rectification plates alongside a pot still), Blinking Owl Vodka transfers the essence from the grain it was made from to the glass.

Flavored Vodka
42.5% ABV (85 PROOF)
Beginning with their beautiful Vodka, they add 130 pounds of whole Valencia oranges that come from Heritage Museum of Orange County and the historic Nisson Ranch orchard. They hand-cut the oranges and let the entire orange soak (including flesh, pith, juice and peel) in the Vodka overnight. The vodka is then re-distilled with oranges added to our vapor basket in the still. The combination of natural orange macerations and vapor distillation to an already rich, sweet vodka base creates a true orange essence to this flavored vodka that is full-bodied and delicious.

42.5% ABV (85 PROOF)
They set out to make an aquavit reminiscent of the great Aquavits of Scandinavia but with a California twist. After crafting their base spirit with organic wheat and malted barley, they macerated 10 gorgeous organic botanicals (with a final steep in Caraway, leaving a natural golden hue). The primary flavors of their Aquavit are caraway, fresh dill, and hibiscus (the flower of Santa Ana), with undertones of fennel and cardamom. The result is a complex aquavit that can served chilled as a digestif or can add incredible flavors to a variety of cocktails.
