At Azeo, we take on a tactile approach to distillation. Only the best cuts from each run make their way into the finished product. Our flagship offering, Vodka 100% Distilled from Apples, begins with 20 tons of apples at a time. We press the apples to create the hard cider that will be distilled first through our 4-chamber fractioning tower, and then through our 16-chamber tower, all manually operated. It takes about 27 apples to make 1 bottle. As for any waste, there is a reason California cows are happy. locally distilled in Paso Robles, Ca.
