80 Proof (ABV 40%) 

Process: Distilled to 192 proof from corn and wheat, for both natural
sweetness and a creamy-vanilla note, followed by a post-
distillation filtration method learned from high-end
European vodka makers who do not export to the USA, and a proprietary
in-house process for smoothness. A true sipping
vodka served neat, even at room temperature.

Serving: This exceptional vodka is an ideal “sipping
vodka” over ice, as a martini, vodka soda or with tonic.
Customer feedback: “This vodka is too smooth!”

Story: Our “Strait” references the nearby Strait of Juan
de Fuca between the US and Canada, and the “Killer” is of
course the abundant killer whales just offshore from our
distillery. We delayed producing a vodka until we were sure it’d be top notch.
This represents months reading foreign vodka-making patents and talking with
actual producers of high-end vodkas in Europe.

    We are a craft distillery producing world-class whiskies and gins – as seen in our multiple gold, double gold and other awards from national and international competitions. We make tasty and enjoyable gin for people who “think” they don’t like gin. All our spirits are sipping spirits – meant to taste great right out of the bottle. After some years in company and product development, including a move to- and then back from Canada (!), we are wholly committed to super premium quality, using organic, sustainable and renewable ingredients whenever available. The 2 co founders, Ernie and Leigh Troth have backgrounds in international business and trade, project and product development and quality control. Leigh has also been a senior software developer.

    Ernie Troth hails from Washington State, but has lived and worked close to 15 years abroad, mostly in Europe and the Middle East. He holds a BA degree from Chicago, an MA in International Economics from Geo. Washington University in DC, and an MBA in International Marketing from New Haven. After working abroad, he settled in Virginia, where he met his wife, Leigh. During the course of business development for the distillery, Ernie worked part-time and as a volunteer worker at both US and Canadian distilleries, took courses from the American Distilling Institute and others. Developing sensory  perception for distillates is an acquired ability, and he combines the sensory process with chemistry and detailed analytics.

    Tasting notes: Faint sweetness on the nose, initial
    sweetness with smooth velvety presence from mid-palate
    to the finish, which remains sweet from the corn and
    velvety from the wheat.
