AVIV 613 is likely the most crafted and costly spirit to produce. It is vodka but it has a unique bouquet of flavor notes. It is distilled from seven ingredients, not one like other vodka. While 6.1.3. has a spiritual meaning 3.1.6. represents AVIV’s formulation process, described below.
A MASTERFULLY CRAFTED AND COMPLEX SPIRIT UNLIKE ANY OTHER IN THE WORLD
While other vodkas are distilled from one ingredient, AVIV 613 is distilled from seven grains and fruits— wheat, barley, olives, figs, dates, grapes and pomegranates; and, the water in AVIV 613 is sourced from the Sea of Galilee. The result is an exquisite, layered bouquet of flavor notes unlike any other spirit in the world.
To appreciate AVIV 613’s multi-layered flavor notes it is best served neat.
AVIV 613 is kosher and gluten free. The distillation process removes gluten from its grains. AVIV 613 meets the FDA’s requirements for a “gluten free” designation.
OUR 3.1.6. PROCESS
AVIV 613 is a blend of fruit and grain alcohol. Two batches of mash are created, one from olives, figs, dates, grapes, and pomegranates; the other from wheat and barley. After each mash is fermented, they are individually distilled three times (3) and then the alcohols are blended to a precise proportion before they are distilled one more time (1). The blended, four-times-distilled alcohol is filtered six times (6) before adding water from the Sea of Galilee. The fruit-grain blend give AVIV its warm, sweet bouquet. The Sea of Galilee is the lowest elevation fresh water source in the world and contributes to AVIV’s smoothness.

OUR BOUQUET OF 5 FRUITS AND 2 GRAINS
Because AVIV 613 is distilled from pomegranates, figs, dates, grapes, olives, wheat and barley, there are a variety of aromas you may experience. Judges in the vodka competitions which AVIV participated mentioned caraway rye bread, herbs, various fruits, and anise.
AVIV 613 is distilled four times. Distilling more than four times removes too much aroma, taste, and character.
As stated above, to appreciate AVIV 613’s multi-layered flavor notes, it is best served neat.
WATER FROM THE SEA OF GALILEE
The Sea of Galilee, which is associated with the Bible, is in the northeast area of Israel. It is fed by the tributaries of the Hermon, Bental, Meron and Tabor mountains. It is the lowest elevated fresh water source in the world, and contributes to AVIV’s silky smooth finish. When the Sea is too low to harvest, AVIV sources its water from the aquifers located under the Holy Land. Both water sources are considered the most spiritual in the world by many religions and spiritual groups.
