Ever see what gigantic waves do to rocks and shells in the surf?
They smooth out the rough edges and reveal character. They do the
same for our vodka.
For two decades, our master blender traveled the planet like a
surfer chasing the perfect swell. He was possessed with an idea
for filtering spirits a new way, with pressure as powerful as
gigantic ocean waves.
Born in Venezuela and raised in Italy, Andres had experimented
with everything from cristalino to cognac, muscat to mezcal. Then
in 2014, while living in San Francisco, he took a gamble and
unleashed his high-pressure filtration idea on the most unlikely
spirit: vodka. The result was like nothing ever created in
America. It had citrus notes in the front, grilled sweet corn
aroma in the middle, and a rich and velvety, unparalleled finish.
“This kind of complexity was something no one else was bringing to
the minimalist experience of vodka,” Andres says.
Building on White Claw's history of innovation and technical
knowhow, he joined a team that perfected the process for Triple
Wave Filtrated White Claw Premium Vodka. Today Andres is 100%
focused on redefining the alcohol beverage industry by building
relevant, true, and innovative craft brands that connect people
and challenge the status quo. With White Claw, he didn't just ride
the next wave of vodka. He helped create a giant new one.
