Listen to Episode 71: Black Cow Vodka with co-founder Paul “Archie” Archard”
Vodka made entirely from MILK?! Meet Black Cow Vodka.
Black Cow Vodka is perhaps the first of its kind in the world made from discarded whey – a bi-product of cheese production. Jason Barber’s family has been making cheese and producing milk for over 200 years. Along with friend and neighbor Paul “Archie” Archard – a former producer, artist and designer – they started Black Cow in 2012 to critical acclaim.
For this week’s Bit by a Fox Podcast co-founder Archie talks about how this harebrained idea came to be, how Black Cow is one of the most sustainable spirits being produced, and why milk is the perfect organic ingredient to make vodka with.
This week’s featured cocktail recipe is Black Cow Vodka’s Espresso Martini:
Black Cow Vodka’s Espresso Martini
2 oz Black Cow Vodka
1 oz Fresh Cooled Espresso Coffee
1/2 oz Maple Syrup
