US-based Old Trestle Distillery has announced the launch of its corn-based Sierra Vodka.

The product is claimed to be the only vodka in the market produced in Tahoe using 100% Sierra Nevada-sourced water.

Sierra Vodka is American vodka made using California Yellow Corn, grown in the Sacramento Valley.

With sweet aromas referring to the base grain of corn, Sierra Vodka offers flavour balanced with a clean, crisp and sturdy finish.

Additionally, the distillery has partnered with Truckee-based Old Town Tap to celebrate the release.

Old Trestle Distillery master distiller Jake Holshue said: “We are thrilled to announce the release of Truckee / Tahoe’s first Vodka that is truly from the region.

“This release is another step in Old Trestle’s journey to take the elements and terroir of the mountains in which we live and present them to the world in the form of high-quality spirits.”

The company added that its vodka is the first that has been fermented, distilled, filtered, bottled and labelled in the Truckee / Tahoe region.

Established in 2012, the Truckee distillery is at the heart of the Sierra Mountains in northern California.

It is the first distillery in the Truckee region in over 100 years, established to bring back the art and craft of distilling to the Tahoe region.

Its offering includes gins and vodka, with plans to launch its first whiskey expression in the market by the middle of next year.
