Got milk? Almonte’s Dairy Distillery does, and they’re happy to share with you! If you’re wondering how spirits can be made from milk, when it comes to craft alcohol anything goes, including distilling one of the world’s favourite beverages, cow’s milk.
The concept of distilling milk into alcohol isn’t new; fermented milk has been around for more than 1,000 years, and today is a hot new trend in the craft alcohol world. At the cutting-edge Dairy Distillery you can find out how they use science to transform milk by-product into an incredible tasting spirit, Vodkow.
If you’re not sure what to expect from Vodkow, you’ll be pleasantly surprised with this smooth, delicious spirit that offers a highly unique flavour profile. Vodkow needs to be experienced to truly appreciate the smoothness and complexity of this cutting-edge product.
Drop by Dairy Distillery and chat with staff to get the inside scoop on the distillery, and (of course!) sample some Vodkow. Explore their trendy tasting room, and run your hand along their one-of-a-kind, hand-pounded copper and poured cement bar that serves as a cool centrepiece for the room.
If you have an interest in the inner workings of distilling, you’ll find the floor to ceiling windows into the production room will give you a tantalizing look at what it takes to produce a quality product.
