REAL CRAFT VODKA

Gunnar's Vodka is a locally sourced small batch vodka. It isn't made from redistilled spirits and it's not re-blended, rebottled, and passed off as "handmade craft vodka." Gunnar's Vodka is crafted the right, the way it should be.

DISCOVER THE GUNNAR'S DIFFERENCE.

Our Ultra Premium Craft Vodka is truly handmade using locally sourced corn from farmers we call friends, not too far from the old Florida country road we call home.  Our Vodka is made one small batch at a time and bottled onsite by a real artisan - a true craftsman who seals his promise of authenticity with a name on every label.

 

Gunnar's Real Craft Vodka is remarkably well rounded with a clean aroma, smooth taste, and a satisfying finish.  It's made for culinary artists and mixologists who, like us, take pride in using local ingredients and want to add a unique, handcrafted, ultra premium pairing to the menu.  It's also perfect for consumers with discriminating taste and interest in knowing where and how their spirits are made.

Gunnar's Vodka is certified as a craft distilled spirit by the American Distilling Institute, a leading authority on artisan spirits.

SMALL BATCH DISTILLING IS NOT A PROCESS, IT'S A CRAFT

 

 

Gunnar's batch makers personally manage the quality and purity of Gunnar's Vodka with exceptional expertise and skill.  Unlike high production fractional stills that mechanically "cut" the heads and tails (the chemical filled first and last portions of the distillate), these craftsmen sense the "heart" (or middle cut) of every batch, and precisely separate it all at the perfect time to capture the purest, cleanest, and smoothest spirit.

 

Gunnar's Vodka is finished in purified water, polished, filtered and tested for quality onsite at our craft distillery.  This is also where every bottle is proudly hand filled and labeled with the batch maker's name.  



THE ART OF REAL CRAFT DISTILLATION

 

 

Some commercial spirit manufacturers operate on efficiency and volume.  Their process starts with very large amounts of grains fed into a machine made for continuous fermentation and distillation.  Their finished product, a neutral tasting bulk spirit, is usually shipped and bottled at different locations and sold under a different label.

 

Gunnar's Real Craft Vodka isn't rushed. It's meticulously crafted one small batch at a time, only 40 gallons-in a handmade copper still using locally sourced corn and grains.

Independently owned Gunnar's Vodka was named by Bill Kratsas, Gunnar's Spirits owner. Bill lovingly named his product after his grandfather, who enjoyed making and sharing his own wine and spirits using grapes grown  from his own garden.  The origin of the Kratsas name is even derived from the Greek word "Krasi" meaning wine.  Gunnar's Vodka is crafted with a real sense of family, community, and pride.

 

 

OUR SPIRITS COME FROM HARD WORK, FROM THE HEART.


Gunnar's Vodka is the product of a hardworking group of people who turn on the lights every morning and spark up the still. Our batch makers define "automation" as what's created by their own two hands. 

 

With great pride, every bottle of Gunnar's Vodka is personally made for people who share our passion for high quality spirits and support true independent local craft commerce.

 

We invite you to taste the art, and heart, of Gunnar's Real Craft Vodka.
