42 Below uses genetically modified free wheat from the purest fields in the world and water from a volcanic spring that achieves the highest purity rating possible. 42 BELOW is distilled near a world benchmark for air purity, 42 degrees below the equator. Distilled four times, the spirit is then 'washed' in spring water reducing the level of alcohol to 6%. This cleans away any remaining impurities. It is then distilled a fifth time to create totally pure spirit. This 'high saturation' distilling in New Zealand spring water is unique to 42 BELOW. The spirit then passes through 35 filters to create a very smooth vodka.
