Guests who enter the tasting room at Pyramid Vodka
are enveloped in the aroma of freshly baking bread and then led through a fascinating lesson on distilling involving corn, Indiana, grist mills, stripping runs, something called a dephlegmator, mash, and taxes.
The star of the tour is the gorgeous still, which was built specifically for Pyramid in China.
From start to finish, it takes about 10 days to make Pyramid Vodka.
And speaking of finishes, the tour ends with a tasting. This is a substantial vodka, with a note of fruit.
It's a great tour. Go check it out. Takes about half an hour. And, yep, the vodka is available for purchase.
Tasting room is open Tuesdays-Fridays, 2-6 p.m. and Saturdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
