Smoke Wagon is blended and bottled by Nevada H&C Distilling Co.
They have become known for their bottles which have raised imagery of desert sage, the Nevada state flower, which can be found on the Silver Dollar bottle as well as the amber Smoke Wagon bottles and in the label of the Straight Bourbon.
The Morgan silver dollar (replicated on the bottle’s face) was minted in Carson City, the state capitol. It is the perfect symbol and name for their vodka due to its Nevada significance and the fact that silver dollar vodka is silver filtered.
Smoke Wagon? Does that mean it’s smokey? Smoke Wagon is actually old west slang for the 1873 Colt single action army revolver or “the gun that won the west”. Their logo stamped in wax consists of two crossed Smoke Wagons over the state of Nevada. Below is their motto and a quote from Seneca, bibamus moriendum est. The literal translation is “drink, for we must die” but the meaning is more along the lines of, drink and enjoy today because we won’t be around forever.
Batch 36 || Bottled on October 19th, 2022 || Distilled in Indiana
51% rye / 49% Malted Barley
Brand Tasting Notes: The Malted Barley really shines through upfront, starting the flavor journey off sweet and creamy with flavor notes of caramel, cereal, and what can only be described as..well..malt. The Rye kicks off the finish with tons of cinnamon spice, and big black pepper, combined with smoky flavor notes courtesy of the Malted Barley.
