The owners of Boyd & Blair, Barry Young and C. Prentiss Orr, give new meaning to the phrase “handmade by locals.” Produced from an original mash using locally-grown potatoes, this batch-distilled vodka is produced by hand; in other words, without the use of automated controls. As Still Master, Barry chooses the more expensive and labor-intensive route and only uses the “heart of the run”, which he cuts based on taste and experience. Named after the owners' fathers, each bottle of Boyd & Blair is signed by Barry and then filled, corked, and dipped in wax by hand.
The slight natural sweetness and creamy viscosity inherent to the potato meets mid-palate flavors of cocoa bean, maple and honey. The aftertaste is graceful, solid and simply delicious.
