The essence of Meili emanates from fire, water, earth, and air.
Every element is purveyed with quality and character in mind.
The perfection within the process.
The heart of our spirit, fire, not only powers our stills - but also refines our beautifully unique glass.
Our flame burns twice as bright - indefinitely, due to Meili's 100% post-consumer recycled bottle. Vast mountains of broken, discarded glass are heated to molten masses, reborn, and repurposed into something functional and exquisite.
This is why no two bottles are alike. The antique texture, full of organic imperfections, and the stunning Georgia green hue.
An appropriate vessel for our outstanding spirit.
The soul of our spirit, water, is the essence of our existence. Instinctively, we sought one of the purest water sources available.
An ancient aquifer formed over 300 million years ago ushers alpine snow and rainfall through miles of vast underground caverns - filtering and infusing itself through the veins of natural springs.
Meili takes pride in using this “living water” to distill and proof our spirits to bottle, resulting in an incredibly refreshing, unpolluted, and genuinely remarkable flavor.
Our regenerative water source is considered one of the purest on Earth by EPA standards.
The body of our spirit is derived from the earth.
A harmonious marriage of native and seasonal grains brings a bright, smooth, and effortless flavor profile.
Our grains are sourced locally on our own farms, operated by the same family for generations. These farms are located centrally to our water source and distillery, resulting in the smallest carbon footprint possible. A factor that is very important to us.
To honor the Earth, we ensure that Meili is created, sourced, and produced as ethically, environmentally friendly, and humanely as possible.
The final "breath of life" into our spirit is air.
From beginning to end, Montana's crisp, cool mountain air influences our vodka and its ingredients in several unique ways.
The 11,000-foot elevation at our aquifer's peak allows alpine snow and rainfall to remain untainted before its subterranean journey to the collection source.
At the final distillation stage, our vodka is set to rest and breathe before bottling, resulting in a smoother flavor profile.
We take the broken and make it whole.
We transform the discarded into the desired.
This is recycling reimagined.
Resurrected from the blaze, our handmade glass radiates new life from the ashes of the old. Designed through determination, true beauty contains imperfections. Look for them as a testament to our story. To not use the cheapest, most accessible glass available - but to create something better.
Seek the unique, lead by example.
Our message lies within every bottle.
Our vision lives through our glass.
This is real sustainability.
"There is beauty in the imperfections; no two bottles are alike."
