Florida Distillery Trail
Preez Distillery is the first and only vodka distillery established in Largo, FL. It’s veteran owned and operated with non of the military feel upon entry. This crazy idea of making spirits began in 2015, in Fairbanks, Alaska. During the owner’s last duty station at Fort Wainwright long cold nights were in the horizon and the consolation price was vodka. With most outdoor activities being in the cold bars and friend gatherings were almost a daily occurrence, and drinking was involved. After a noticiable high spending of over $600 in a month, the owner took on the task to save money by making some sort of spirits. The research began, distillery visits were very common with lots of questions, reading, and comparing notes and judging spirits. By the end of 2015 the first set of basic equipment and ingredients were acquired. From here on it was trial and failure. Batch 1 was started in hopes to have some spirits by New Year’s Eve; failed. #2 was started immediately after and it also failed. More research happened to account for the errors that led to batch failure. Batch 3 also failed during fermentation. Batch 4, this one finally fermented properly, however, it failed during distillation. Batch 5 made it through distillation but it was terrible. Starting at batch 6, there were some decent spirits that everyone was enjoying did the sake of not having to spend money at the store. The batches progressively got better. Implementing different techniques at different stages of the process allowed for a better product each time. On July 2020 a self-taught distiller was born as Preez distillery.
