      Vodka made with 100% New York corn grown on a regenerative farm. Corn vodka? Yep! Mildly sweet and fruity on the nose with an unmistakeable fresh corn aroma, this almost drinks more like a "corn eau-de-vie" if you can wrap your mind around that. Adds a truly special dimension to summer drinks.
       
      "The first time we ran Thor Oeschner’s corn, there was a sort of gravitational pull we all felt towards the mill. Everyone in the building was drawn near by the richness of it. We described it in the story of Moon Lake, which gets its name from the corns home in the Finger Lakes. You go through your life smelling something, like corn, all the time. You have a memory for it - it’s familiar. And then you smell it again, only this time, it’s the most corn-rich corn smell you’ve ever smelled.. like the volume has been turned up, LOUD. It’s a smell you never knew you were missing, but as soon as you get up close to it, it makes you long for it in a most nostalgic way, as with borrowed memories of someone else’s grandmothers cooking.
       
      This corn collides and transmutes into this rich vodka, for which we borrow the nickname, Bling Nova. We mill it, mash it, and ferment it before our first distillation, a stripping run through our pot still made from copper and stainless. The spirit off of that stripping run is called the low wines. We create three batches before combining the low wines in the still for a final spirit run though our copper columns, featuring 22 plates. And while the spirit journeys through all 22 plates on its way to becoming a vodka, somehow, it holds onto that certain, warm feeling of nostalgia. When starting Matchbook, we never thought we’d release a vodka. It’s too mired by rules and expectations. But f--- it. This is good - and we’re excited to share it with you."
