Silver Medal, 2019 American Distilling Institute Craft Spirits Awards

Hard Truth Original Vodka is handcrafted in small batches using 100% wheat. Through careful distillation and carbon processes, the resulting spirit is clean on the palate with a subtle, sweet finish.

This Hard Truth is best served: in a filthy martini; or in a Hard Truth Bacon Bloody Mary.


This wheat-based vodka has a neutral aroma and slightly sweet, vanilla-tinged flavor, finishing crisp, peppery and crackling dry. Sip or mix.
