Review: Topshelf Vodka

Posted by Arctic Wolf on August 20, 2021

Top Shelf Distillers are located in Perth, a town in Eastern Ontario, located on the Tay River, about 80 kilometres southwest of Ottawa. At one time Perth was home to four distilleries, the two most famous, McLaren and Spalding & Stewart, were located in limestone buildings alongside the Tay River catering to the tastes of the early Scottish settlement by producing malt whisky similar to the Scottish style of the day.

Prohibition (the Ontario Temperance Act of 1916) is largely blamed for the demise of the distilling industry in Perth, but now, about one hundred years later, Top Shelf Distillers have began to once again bottle spirits in Perth. Vodka and Gin are their core brands, making up most of the distilleries total volume with their primary market being Ontario, although they have also began to sell their spirits in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. In addition to Gin and Vodka, the distillery produces a number of different Moonshine brands and they have just began to bottle and sell their Perth Whisky.

Top Shelf Vodka is distilled from locally-sourced corn and bottled at 40 % alcohol by volume.

Review: Topshelf Vodka

“… When severd chilled, Top Shelf Vodka was slightly thickened and displayed light aromas of grain spice with hints of lemon citrus. The first sip was clean, lightly sweet with the light grain spices which were apparent on the nose freshening the palate …”

Please enjoy this review which includes my serving suggestion, the Vodka Daiquiri.
