Typically when you think of organic you don’t think sleek and sexy, but Blackleaf defies traditional expectations. The name Blackleaf embodies the spirit of the brand. It brings together two seemingly opposed ideas into one. “Black” represents sophistication and the pursuit of excellence and “leaf” is for organic purity. Together it creates something unique that stands out as a black leaf in nature would.
Blackleaf Organic Vodka is the creation of Washington, DC resident, Kevin Larkai, who met Bertrand Laclie while vacationing in Cognac. Kevin and Bertrand bonded over a shared passion for the creation of premium consumer experiences. We decided to make an organic and environment-friendly spirit through the lens of style and elegance, which birthed the PREMIUM + ORGANIC theme.
We’re excited to bring this to you and hope to build a strong community we can inspire and get inspiration from. Connect with us, try us, invite us into your homes, send us notes, give us feedback, challenge us…we want to redefine the drinking experience and we’re only just getting started.
1889! That is over 120 years ago, well before any of our times. Lucky for us Rene Laclie was a young man who became interested in the art of cognac distillation. He was passionate about perfecting his craft and went on to build a reputation as one of the finest distillers. Five generations later, this pursuit of excellence in the art of distillation still continues. This heritage along with innovation is part of the Maison Rene Laclie DNA today.
Fun fact: In 1889 France organized the World Fair and debuted the Eiffel Tower. The spirit of innovation was in full effect from Paris to Cognac, France.
Blackleaf vodka is the perfect blend of premium and organic. Carefully handcrafted in the heart of the acclaimed region of France, our 5 stage copper pot artisanal distillation produces a vodka that is not only smooth but full of character. We are proud to be the first French organic vodka on the market.
Organic Winter Wheat:
Untouched by pesticides and synthetic fertilizers, our wheat remains organic from the moment it is planted until it’s harvested; earning it a USDA-NOP Organic certification.
Unique to the Cognac region, Blackleaf is made with spring water naturally filtered through champagne limestone. The unique taste of this water lends to Blackleaf Vodka's bold character.
