360 vodka – the next step in green


360.jpg

Four times distilled, five times filtered, with a taste that is smoothly refined, and with manufacturing and packaging processes that are ultra-green, 360 Vodka is a ‘must imbibe’ for all green drinkers, (please note: I’ve done extensive personal taste testing).

The quadruple distilling process employed by 360 is highly energy-efficient with each bushel of grain fully utilized, for zero waste. Production facilities have improved their eco-footprint each of the last five years, and the packaging and ancillary materials are truly green. The labeling process alone saves this impressive list of valuable resources:

  • 36 fully grown trees
  • 15,337 gallons of water
  • 1,715 lbs of solid waste
  • 26 million btu’s of energy
  • 3,345 lbs of greenhouse gas
  • 2,924 avg. driving miles in U.S. car

360Vodka_w.jpgThat’s a lot of green to love. Some additional eco – attributes include: packaging consisting of 100% recycled content & post consumer waste, an 85% recycled glass bottle and chlorine-free paper processing.

There’s even an innovative and unique cap, or ‘closure’.

The 360 distillation process is said to be 200% more efficient than conventional pot stills, while its charcoal filtration system filters out almost all impurities.

Enjoy one of the world’s first eco-friendly premium spirits. Check out the “360 Close the Loop” program which donates up to $1 to select green orgs for every closure returned to the distiller.
Although 360 is distilled from an all-American super premium grain, if it were from 100% organic grain, it would be totally green from the inside, out.
