Kástra Elión is a new vodka, LA-based, and distilled from olives found in the Nafpaktos region of Greece. This creates a flavor profile with notes of ripe olives refined with peppery undertones and a buttery finish, the company says.
Once the olives have been picked, they are blended with a mix of grains, later mixed with spring water from the Crystalline Rock in Mount Taygetus (the highest peak in Southern Greece). After a 30-day resting period allowing the vodka to further smoothen, it is bottled.
The name Kástra Elión comes from the Greek words for castle (kastro) and olives (elión, derivative of eliás).
The suggested retail price is $54.99-$59.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
