We ask our consumers, friends, family and followers to “raise their glass and awareness to the rising sea levels!”
Our mission is to take an everyday event which is drinking alcohol and attract awareness to the much needed efforts to stop global warming!
We ask philanthropist’s, conservationist’s, nonprofit organizers, humanitarians, social workers, artists, good samaritans, world citizens and of course the bad asses who try and make everyday a new opportunity to be the best you possible – have a glass of our vodka to celebrate your help, your movement and your efforts to making and creating a healthier planet!
Aqua Vodka is run by Paul Triporo of Hurst, Texas; “loyalty and integrity can’t be bought, you are born with it – it’s in your blood”
After selling his belongings to mission around South East Asia where he was teaching kids english and pollution awareness to his students; the kids were turning rubbish into everyday tools like trash cans, brooms and string!
He made a life promise to not only himself but the planet, animals and humans whom call earth their home; where as everything he does will impact in every way to help a humanitarian or ecological cause.
The vodka is made from NON GMO project verified (www.nongmoproject.org) Grain Neutral Spirits and is mixed with Reverse Osmosis water. Where it is known that R.O water filters out all the sediment and impurities such as rust, calcium carbonate, organic chemicals and chlorine to make our vodka “Pure as Water”
The company will continue to partner up and help initiatives such as 4Ocean and Sustainable Coastlines Org, where it has been seen through a social movement both are helping raise awareness about the plastic pollution issues we currently face. For more information on their company follow the link’s provided. www.4ocean.com and www.sustainablecoastlines.org
Drink responsibly Eco-Warriors!
What makes this vodka company different from their competitors is that a percentage of its profits are channeled to organizations and initiatives fighting climate change. Aqua Vodka has a philanthropic vision that motivates them to support social entrepreneurship and environmental conservation.
The custom bottle of Aqua Vodka is shaped just like an icicle to add awareness and excitement to what the company represents. Per the founder, “Our Logo, is a glacier melting and our bottle resembles an icicle. We do not celebrate negative effects of climate change; we are simply increasing awareness about it and in doing so we want to open the minds of people as well.”
H2O Yacht Company is the philanthropy company of Aqua Vodka which contributes to education of deserving children and raises awareness about the dangers of ocean pollution. In fact, it was hailed by The Huffington Post, a renowned online news aggregator in the United States, as “Pioneers for Change” in a published article at http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/12101670.
Distillation dates back to the 10th century or even earlier. This refers to the long-established practice of fermenting fruits, grains, and sugars to produce alcohol beverages; fermentation is defined as a chemical change or transformation caused by the presence of bacteria or microorganisms, yeast and molds in vegetable or animal organisms. In producing alcoholic drinks, yeast (enzyme) acts on sugars present on the mash (maltose and dextrose) converting these to ethyl alcohol.
The Aqua Vodka process is quite complex and entails the following:
Preparation of Mash
The NON-GMO Project Verified Corn is placed in a mash tub or machine with built-in agitators that pulverize the grains as the tub turns around or revolves.
Sterilization and Inoculation
This prevents the growth of bacteria. It is crucial to the making of distilled spirits. Mash is sterilized by heating up to boiling point. After this, it is injected with lactic-acid (bacteria) to increase acidity levels for the fermentation procedure. The mash gets another inoculation after the preferred acidity level is attained.
The pulp is poured into huge stainless-steel holders. A certain amount of yeast is put in after which the tubs are closed for two until four days. Enzymes (complex chemicals) convert sugars in the pulp to ethyl alcohol.
Distillation & Rectification
Liquid ethyl alcohol is siphoned to the stills. These are stainless-steel pilasters composed of vaporization chambers and piled on top of one another. The alcohol is rotated up and down continuously. It is heated by the steam up to that point the vapors are discharged and condensed. The process takes away all the impurities. Vapors go up to the upper chambers where these are concentrated. The extracts flow to lower chambers where these are disposed of. Some of the dregs or residue can be sold as feeds for livestock.
Reverse Osmosis Water with Higher PH
At this point, some water is added so the alcohol percentage is reduced significantly. Aqua Vodka uses Reverse osmosis water with a PH infuser. This allows us to bring the alkalinity above the normal PH levels of municipal water; in doing so it is scientifically proven that water with a higher PH helps your body stay healthier.
The final step is bottling in which the alcoholic beverages are transferred to glass bottles. Glass is preferred since the material is non-reactive. Reactive containers like plastic and metal cause possible chemical changes in the alcoholic beverage. Bottling is done by hand to add another unique twist to our quality control process and then the bottles must be cleaned properly; filled up; capped; closed; labeled; and, placed inside boxes. Our bottles are ECO-FRIENDLY we use recycled glass for the bottle and the closure is made up of recycled plastics.
