Peureux PERFECT 1864 Vodka

Touted as the purest and smoothest vodka in the world, Peureux's Perfect 1864 is made exclusively from "froment", a soft bread wheat grown on the rich plains of Brie-Champagne. The grain is crushed, fermented and distilled multiple times locally according to an exclusive process. The clear spirit is then matured by the Master Distillers who are heirs to age old traditions. This spirit undergoes only a very light filtering due to its extreme purity while preserving its natural character. It is then enriched with the legendary Vosges water, drawn from springs in the depths of the Ballons des Vosges natural preserve. Perfect 1864 is filled in a sleek, contemporary bottle bearing the crest of a fleur de lis. .
