Brilliantly smooth vodka from France
Summum Vodka is crafted at the A. de Fussigny distillery in the heart of the historic French town of Cognac, by the banks of the Charente River.
Summum’s master distiller painstakingly distills the finest French wheat to sparkling clarity and then slowly incorporates spring water over the course of many weeks to lower the proof. Finally, the vodka is ice-filtered to remove any remaining impurities, leaving only a brilliant, smooth and satisfying experience for the discriminating vodka drinker.
Vodka is the most-consumed spirit in the world. In 2012, according to The Economist, global vodka consumption reached 4.4 billion liters. The definitive neutral spirit, vodka is an essential ingredient to be enjoyed in any number of mixed drinks, and sippable straight in upscale, premium versions.
Just about any fermentable material can be used to make vodka. Most common bases are grains, like barley, rye and wheat, but potatoes, grapes and corn are also used. Despite the varying ingredients, the finished product is almost universally pure, clear and neutral. Vodka’s slight aromas and clean flavors are subtle, but can be distinctive.
