ABOUT GREENBAR COLLECTIVE
Greenbar Collective represents the world’s largest portfolio of organic, handcrafted spirits, including BAR KEEP organic bitters, CRUSOE organic rums, FRUITLAB organic liqueurs, IXÁ organic tequila, SLOW HAND organic whiskey, TRU organic gin and TRU organic vodkas.

But that wasn’t always the case.

When husband-and-wife team Melkon Khosrovian and Litty Mathew began making spirits in 2004, they used conventional spirits and local, hand-processed produce.

Soon, their unique spirits won many awards. But Melkon and Litty couldn’t take all the credit. They learned their successes also hinged on some silent partners — the farmers who grew their ingredients. Several had moved to organic farming, resulting in more aromatic, flavorful produce…which led to more flavorful, aromatic spirits.

Their minds were made. ORGANICS HELD THE KEY TO BETTER TASTING SPIRITS. Today, Greenbar Collective produces and distributes the world’s biggest portfolio of organic spirits — all made by hand with real ingredients.

The environment also benefits because the company uses lightweight bottles, 100% recycled labels and plants a tree for every bottle sold. Cheers!

44northhuck

Product Spotlight: 44° North Mountain Huckleberry Flavored Vodka

 

As the first vodka approved to wear the Idaho Potato Commission’s official seal, 44° North Mountain Huckleberry Flavored Vodka is the standard in Idaho potato vodkas. It is an ideal spirit for drinking chilled, straight-up, on the rocks, or in an infinite range of signature cocktails.

44º North Mountain Huckleberry Flavored Vodka is distilled from 100% Idaho Potatoes, blended with Rocky Mountain Water from the Snake River Aquifer, and then infused in our proprietary blend of all natural Huckleberries.

 

Welcome to North of Center
44° North Vodka is “North of Center.” It’s rugged, authentic, and yet refined. North of Center is a state of mind that’s wide-open and defiantly optimistic, much like the great people of Idaho. 44° North is about exceeding expectations-above the mainstream and off the middle-of-the-road.

Some think you can’t bottle the independent spirit. We just did.

 

Up From Ordinary
There is a movement happening in the spirit industry. The bland over-processed multi-national brands are giving way to independent, handcrafted spirits. At the northern edge of this movement, 44° North Vodka is distilled from earth and sky-not merely produced in Idaho, it is produced by Idaho.

In 2004, 44° North Vodka began with a simple objective: to achieve a smooth and distinctive taste by distilling directly from 100% Idaho-grown potatoes or Brundage Winter Wheat blended with Rocky Mountain Spring Water. To flavor the vodka, 44° North uses only all natural Mountain Huckleberries and Rainier Cherries. 44º North’s Magic Valley Wheat unflavored vodka is made with grain, which is raised in the heart of Idaho’s Magic Valley growing region.

 

An Original Idaho Potato Vodka
Let the other producers re-distill industrial produced product, artificially flavor neutral grain spirits, over-distill, and chemically treat their vodka. We’ll stick to using real Idaho-grown ingredients without all the smoke and mirrors.

Idaho Potatoes and Brundage Winter Wheat along with Rocky Mountain spring water produce a smoother vodka without the bitterness. 44° North Vodka accomplishes this with a five-column, multi-plate, distillation process that elevates the proof of the alcohol being distilled as it strips out virtually all impurities.

Product Spotlight: Mac’s Isaac’s Pear Cider

 

A light, dry cider made from locally grown apples and a refreshing hint of New Zealand Pear. A little drop of Pearfection from Mac’s.

New Zealand pears to our familiar apple base for a softer, less astringent hit of refreshment.

There’s truth to the maxim ‘when life gives you lemons, make lemonade’, then it stands to reason that if life gives you pears, you make Isaac’s Pear Cider. So here is the cider we made when life, or more accurately our local orchardists, gave us some.

 

About Isaac’s
Our range of fine Apple, Pear and Boysenberry ciders is named after Sir Isaac Newton, a man who was familiar with apples and had some interesting ideas of his own.
