other substrates do in the fermentation
and distilling process, so sanitation is
incredibly important.
" We let the potatoes ferment for four days
with great full-bodied vodka yeast that was
really going to develop some nice oils and
textures and aroma in the vodka. Then after
the fermentation was completed, we began
the distillation process, which essentially
means we just heated up the fermented
potato mash and evaporated out the
alcohol, " Sussman said. " We actually ran it
through three different distillations to get to
the product that Chris was happy with. "
The name
North River Vodka was released to
the public at an October launch party at
Jackson's Grand River Brewery - Burtka's
restaurant and brewery. Iott chose the
name as homage to his family and
specifically his father, Ralph Iott, who
died in 2013.
" I live in Jackson now, but I'm from
up north in Kalkaska, and the two most
special places to me in my life - outside
of my own home - are my family's farm
where I grew up and the family land we
have on the Manistee River, " he said. " We
kind of combined all of that in the name.

We didn't really want to call it the Manistee
River vodka because that's a little limiting
and specific, so we combined the up-north
aspect of the farm and the river property,
which is a gathering place for my family
and friends. "
North River currently is only
available at Grand River Brewery, but
Iott is in the process of getting it cleared
for statewide distribution.
Although Sussman is an accomplished
distiller and no stranger to potato vodka,
he said there were no guarantees of
fulfilling Iott's vision. He is very excited
with the final product.
" It was a process of exploration and
discovery, " he said. " It turns out, if you
handle the potatoes correctly and if you
ferment them correctly, my gosh, you have
an absolutely world-class vodka. " VGN
