(San Francisco, CA) – Anchor Brewing & Distilling Company announced a new hop-driven vodka on Friday called HOPHEAD. Here is an excerpt from the press release.
Founded in San Francisco more than 100 years ago, Anchor Brewing & Distilling Company, widely known for its long history as visionaries in the craft beer and spirits industries, continues to remain an innovator in the beverage industry. Anchor Brewing Company was resurrected in 1967 by the pioneer of modern craft brewing, Fritz Maytag. In 1993, in a small distillery beneath the brewery, Anchor set out to blaze a new trail for spirits, introducing Old Potrero Whiskey and Junipero Gin, sparking a craft spirits movement in the U.S. Today, after nearly 15 years since Genevieve Gin was released, Anchor Distilling Company continues its tradition of artisan craftsmanship with the launch of HOPHEAD Vodka.
Distilled entirely from two types of dried hops from Washington State’s Yakima Valley, HOPHEAD is a vodka built on flavor, but is not a “flavored” vodka. This premium craft vodka captures the fresh, aromatic character of hops without the typical bitterness. [...]
HOPHEAD Vodka, 45% ABV, is now available in San Francisco, New York City and other key markets. SRP $29.95.
