charbay makes fruity vodkas
that's marko, slicing oranges. sigh
booze is booze and it’s not like there aren’t a buncha flavored vodkas out there. But Charbay, a boutique spiritier from napa valley, uses prestige fruit such as meyer lemons, key limes, and blood oranges. the vodkas come in fine opaque bottles worthy of holding perfume. and while this has nothing to do with anything, the family-run company has a dreamy front-guy, Marko Karakasevic, who’s a 12th-generation master distiller, oh yeah baby. in dallas, you can buy charbay at sigel’s, centennial, goody goody, etc. or else order your charbay cosmo at nikita, republic, zubar, o bar, morton’s, and the mansion. (grey goose=ancient history.) coming later this year from charbay: pear brandy and a vodka made with green tea.
