Purity Will Change the Way You Look at Vodka

Eater%20Header%20Banner%20v2.png


For brown liquor aficionados and adventurous drinkers alike, the thought of enjoying a vodka neat is less than desirable. Purity Vodka's Master Blender Thomas Kuuttanen couldn't agree more, which is why he set out to bring some character to this otherwise snubbed spirit. How does he do it? It's the only vodka in the world that's distilled 34 times in a proprietary copper and gold pot (still housed in a 13th century castle in the South of Sweden). While 90% of the spirit is lost during the process or donated to the Swedish government for alternative energy sources, that sweet, sweet 10% that remains—or as they call it the "Perfect Cut"—is what yields Purity's astonishingly smooth taste.


Enjoying Purity Vodka neat or with a bit of water—not unlike a good whiskey—is encouraged. However, the spirit also lends itself perfectly to a great cocktail as its clean taste marries well a wide range of flavor profiles and ingredients. This is why we've rounded up the best bars in Chicago currently making superior Purity concoctions. Check out the map below for our picks.
