People get excited about the Fraser River Raspberry vodka because it’s just like fresh raspberries, not the bubblegum chemical compound you expect from “raspberry flavored” products. We don’t add sugar. We don't add anything. It’s just raspberries and vodka.

We macerate and distill the berries, then we blend in raspberry juice. The juice adds complexity and a natural color. We had a totally fabulous design for our raspberry bottle, but when we put the finished product in it, the fresh juice didn’t like the UV rays that came through the clear glass. Now we use a green bottle that gives full UV protection, so we can keep distilling what we think is a truly exceptional spirit.

We buy red Meeker raspberries from some folks up in Washington state’s Fraser River valley. Try the vodka with some dark chocolate.


Sounds good, but as an amateur mixologist myself, I recently picked and infused my very own backyard raspberries. Come on over, I think you'll REALLY like it.
