Our Story

storyThey say that winter spread from her icy staff, drawing a white veil over the raw and sacred ground. Brutal fury and relentless force have conspired with an ancient art to conjure this spirit from the land. In the eye of the tempest, at the edge of the old world, Kalak Vodka is carefully crafted.

Home grown malted barley, pure, cold mountain water, and the patience of stone have come together in this bold spirit named for the Celtic queen of Winter, Kalak, (“An Cailleach”)

Kalak is a phonetic spelling of  “Cailleach”, the Irish Celtic Goddess. Kalak was the closest thing the Celts had to mother nature. She was the embodiment of the darker, more powerful side of nature, and the side we’ve harnessed to make our product.
