Straight No Chaser Vodka

Silver Medal, 2019 American Distilling Institute Craft Spirits Awards

Hard Truth Straight No Chaser 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.

In 2019, Hard Truth Distilling Co. and platinum-selling a capella group Straight No Chaser announced a unique partnership: Hard Truth Straight No Chaser Vodka.

This is the first partnership of this kind for both Hard Truth Distilling Co. and Straight No Chaser, which got its start at Indiana University — located just a few miles down the road from Hard Truth’s Nashville in neighboring Bloomington, Indiana.

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.
