Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between white rum and vodka made from sugar cane?
While rum must be made using sugar cane, vodka can be made from any fruit, root or grain; including sugar cane. The difference lays in the distillation process and the definition of each spirit. To be considered vodka by the Alcohol Beverage Control you must distill the alcohol to above 190 proof. Once you pass this level of purity you are by definition making vodka and not rum.
Does Reigncane have a higher sugar content than other vodkas?
No, Reigncane has a sugar content of 0 grams. All of the sugar is distilled out of the alcohol during the distillation process.
How many calories does Reigncane have?
An ounce or shot of Reigncane only has 67 calories.
What makes Reigncane Alaskan?
We started with the source of water in Alaska which was originally going to be a high-end bottled water. To our fortune, that did not work out and we landed on a much more fun beverage.
Why do you use sugar cane?
For the best taste. It produces a superior and more pure alcohol than that of grains or potatoes. Plus, you get a hint of sweetness in the aroma and taste of Reigncane.
Using grains or potatoes to make vodka requires additional enzymes and produces methanol, fusel alcohols and acetones. These by-products are responsible for most of the ‘rubbing alcohol’ burn and aroma of spirits.
The percentage of methyl alcohol produced when distilling sugar cane is a fraction by comparison, which provides an unmatched purity, taste and smoothness.
You can tell right away when you are drinking Reigncane vs. another vodka.
