In 2012, founder Ian G. MacNeil, launched Glass Distillery to introduce his flagship spirit Glass Vodka to the public. The goal was to create a vodka that was pure, smooth, and artfully crafted with a deep appreciation for the environment from which it was born.
Never one to shy away from the spotlight or quietly accept convention, Ian wanted Glass Vodka to represent a taste for curious rebellion. His new guard celebrates all that life has to offer from refinement and beauty, to conflict and creativity.
With this sensibility, he challenged the staid notion of using potatoes or grains like most other vodkas. Glass Vodka is distilled from grapes, which gives this classic spirit a modern and personal distinction. These grapes are harvested from the rich soils of the Pacific Northwest—one of the world’s premiere winemaking regions.
Sure, grape-based Vodka is a little uncommon. It’s even a bit risky. But it is a successful venture. The naturally produced tastes that stem from the grapes and the soil impart distinctive nuances only found in superior Vodkas. The varying notes are well defined to a connoisseur, pleasingly unexpected to the casual drinker, and mindfully delivers an unforgettably refined finish.
Ian is committed to producing the highest quality Vodka that’s grown and distilled in the place he loves. His ties and support for the community extends beyond the sourcing of grapes from local vineyards. Glass Distillery is honored to support the talent of the regions glassblowing artists from which the name is inspired. Glass art is clear and pure, much like Glass Vodka is a work of art.
In the end, it is just a drink. But it is conceived with passion, irreverence, and a love of new experiences. It is a drink that celebrates and elevates art, beauty and life itself.
