Since most Jews are in the midst of celebrating Passover this week, I thought it might be a good time to introduce you to Moses Vodkas. Pure in spirit and true to the laws of the Jewish faith, Moses Vodka is the first ultra premium vodka certified kosher all year round.
Moses Kosher Vodka
Moses Vodka is an award-winning “super premium” vodka that includes the extra feature of being certified Kashrut or kosher. Fortunately enough, a miracle wasn’t needed to create Moses Vodka. Just the Prophet’s name, pure spring water, the choice of the finest raw ingredients, a unique filtration process, and the blessing of a Rabbi to deliver you a kosher product of true perfection.
above: Moses Vodka is available as both a super premium pure Vodka and a Date flavored Vodka.
From Finland (yes, there are Jews in Finland), it is certified under the supervision of Rabbi Dr. Moshe Edelmann. The vodka itself is made from a base of sugarcane (a vodka rather than a rum because it will have been distilled up to at least 190 proof prior to bottling) and blended down with natural spring water.
Rabbi Yaakov Westheim supervises the distillation process, making sure sugarcane is transformed into pure spirit using methods and machinery compliant to kashrut laws.
Rabbis Benjamin Gruber and Moshe Edelman are responsible for the production process and the quality of ingredients.
This includes a careful selection of raw ingredients, cleaning the bottling line and mixing tanks with boiling water, the usage of single-use materials in the production process wherever possible, strict hygiene rules to follow by the personnel throughout manufacturing and packaging.
As an additional note, as is common with some European vodkas there is a sugar additive to the spirit–sometimes called “rounding the spirit”–which will upset some vodka purists. For others, this is adds a welcome and flavorful smoothness to the vodka.
