Local Vodka Makes Good

With wine country as their muse, Marin natives the Hanson family (siblings Brandon, Chris, Alanna, Darren and dad Scott) have created Hanson of Sonoma Organic Vodka. The small-batch vodka, available for $35 a bottle, is distilled from grapes and comes in infusions ranging from ginger to cucumber, mandarin to espresso. Plus, the family is dedicated to even the smallest details: every bottle is hand stamped, numbered, individually signed and approved by a member of the Hanson family. San Anselmo’s Ludwig’s Fine Wines stocks the vodka and in early 2015 the family plans to open its Sonoma-based distillery to the public. hansonofsonoma.com
