HOW ITS MADE
Starting with select Ontario sweet corn from Chatham, Sarnia, and surrounding farms, it is ground and boiled, converting the starch into sugars for fermentation. We embrace continuous distillation for the next step as it’s extremely efficient which is better for our planet, and it produces an incredibly pure spirit. Following distillation, we meticulously trickle-filter TAG No.5 for days, 5 days in fact, through birch charcoal which removes further impurities, resulting in what we believe to be one of the world’s smoothest vodkas.
Locally sourced corn. Efficient continuous distillation uses 1/2 the energy of pot-stills. Local water and lightweight, recycled glass bottles collectively reduce our carbon footprint, and make TAG one fo the most responsible vodkas on the planet! Our 1.14L and 1.75L bottles are PET which offers massively reduced carbon footprints due to their high recyclability rate, light weight nature, and the fact that they are also made in Ontario. TAG is unquestionably has the lowest carbon footprint of any vodka available in Ontario!!
Silky texture and a clean nose foretells its pure, subtle flavour. Citrus notes with hints of sweetness from the sweet corn. There is absolutely no burn.
