Woods High Mountain Fleur de Sureau Elderflower Liqueur is made like fine Cognac with a whole lot of attention to detail and love if you ask us. 
 
P. T. Wood looks like he was hired as an extra for the old TV show Grizzly Adams—big bushy hair and bread, graying all around, perpetual baseball-style “Wood’s” cap worn straight on… pragmatic, not stylish. When he speaks about distillation, with no sense of irony or pretension he refers to the water and grain as his color pallets and the still as his canvas. And he and his brother Lee make their spirits in an old auto-body shop in Salida, Colorado, at the headwaters of the Arkansas River. 
 
I you do not love everything your read so far then there is something wrong with you. 
 
The folks at Wood’s High Mountain Distillery are young at the game, starting in 2012, but are already making a name for themselves, using an antique copper still from Germany—named Ashley—to create no less than three varieties of Gin, two Whiskies, and a new liqueur called “Fleur de Sureau” which is a new entry into the Elderflower category.

 
So since we are on the topic, let’s talk about that Fleur de Sureau Elderflower Liqueur of theirs, shall we? 
 
You may have noticed that Elderflowers are all the rage these days. They are the tiny, wonderfully aromatic flowers that gather in snowball-like clusters each spring on the Eder plant. And because alcohol infusions and pure, simple syrups make everything better, you add them in to make a liqueur and life is really, really good. 
 
Most producers of Elderflower Liqueur use neutral grain spirits and white sugar for their liqueurs. But Woods High Mountain Fleur de Sureau Elderflower Liqueur is made like a fine Cognac. They distill sweet Muscat and Riesling wines for their base, infuse it with local, wild Elderflowers, and then balance the sweetness with raspberry blossom honey instead of sugar. That there’s a whole lot of attention to detail and love if you ask us. We say sip it neat or mix 50/50 with your favorite Champaign … you WILL NOT be sorry you did!

Seems that Vodka is a lightweight—quite literally. This clear Spirit actually weighs less than water. One liter of water weighs 1,000 grams, while the same amount of Vodka only clocks in at 953 grams.
Unlike its boozy brethren Bourbon and Scotch, Vodka can be made anywhere in the world. But it’s Eastern Europe that gets the credit for its birth. Just don’t ask Russia and Poland to get to the bottom of it—both argue that they masterminded the Spirit first.
You won't impress the bartender by ordering Vodka-soda, but it's a good choice if you want to avoid unecessary sugar intake and make sure you stay hydrated when consuming alcohol.
Vodka can be made anywhere in the world and pretty much of any ingredient that contains starch.

For a potato-based Vodka, 12kg (26.5lbs) potatoes are needed to produce a single bottle.
It looks like potato chips and flavored Vodka are two things where the producers unleash their imagination. Bubble gum, fresh cut grass, pumpkin pie, marshmallow, and coconut water hardly begin to describe the many flavors of Vodka.
The average life of a $50 bill in circulation is 55 months before it is replaced due to wear.
