One of the world’s only vodkas created entirely from grapes, CÎROC Ultra-Premium is simply unique. The name is derived from the combination of two French words, “Cime” meaning peak or summit-top and "roche" meaning rock. True to its roots, CÎROC Mauzac Blanc grapes stem from the high-altitude vineyards in Gaillac, France overlooked by the stony village walls
Historically, vodka has been made from natural and local sources of fermentable sugars and starches. CÎROC is innovative in its use of cold maceration, fermentation and storage processes. Until now, only the top fine wine producers implemented these practices.
CÎROC Ultra-Premium Vodka is complex in its creation but complimentary with most mixers from Champagne to Tonic. However you choose, enjoy the clean finish of CÎROC!
CÎROC Ultra-Premium is one of the world’s only vodkas made entirely from grapes. CÎROC is made from top quality "Snap Frost" grapes; Mauzac Blanc grapes grown in Gaillac, one of the oldest and highest vineyard areas
Historically, vodka has been made from natural and local source of fermentable sugars and starches. But CÎROC is an innovation in French craftsmanship, and creates an unexpected vodka experience in a category where being different is rare. Unlike grain, grapes don’t need heat to release their sugars, so CÎROC uses cold maceration, cold fermentation, and cold storage processes. Until now, only top fine wine producers practiced this process. This technique further preserves its distinctive freshness and extracts a more flavorful combination of the fruit character.
The CÎROC fermentation process lasts for two weeks to ensure the best possible flavor. While all vodka is distilled, CÎROC Ultra-Premium is distilled five times. The Mauzac Blanc ‘heart’ is distilled four times before being blended with the Ugni Blanc grape spirit from Cognac, which is also then distilled four times.
The fifth and final distillation takes place in a beautiful, family owned distillery deep in the Cognac countryside. It is here that CÎROC is truly created - in a traditional, custom-made, Armagnac style copper pot, just like they’ve done from the beginning. The pot distillation lends CÎROC Ultra-Premium its amazingly smooth texture.
