Humboldt’s Finest, the first legal cannabis-infused vodka of its kind, makes for a great gift for avid vodka fans.
So, with deregulation as it is across Canada and various states within the US, pot seems to be slipping its way into virtually everything, from energy drinks and beer to gummy bears and muesli bars and yes, that has stoners and the curious searching online for whatever else the ganja ferry might have touched with her magic. However, before you get too excited, this vodka isn’t quite what it might first appear.
Produced by award-winning Humboldt Distillery, the first micro-distillery in Humboldt County, New York, this curious small-batch cannabis-infused tipple begins with a unique botanical aroma (yes it smells like marijuana) and an appealing herbal character and ends with a smooth finish.
Perfect for contemporary cocktails, the spirit, (which doesn’t boast the THC levels of marijuana), is produced using legally-grown Southern Oregon hemp, the cultivation of which was only authorised with the passage of the 2014 United States Farm Bill.
Try Humboldt’s Finest with honey and thyme for a new take on a vodka spritzer, but don’t expect to be tripping balls because unlike the muesli bars, this is not going to take you sky-high.
