Beginning with nothing but a family recipe for raisin vodka and a primitive pot still that he built himself in his family’s farmhouse, DASH’s founder and Master Distiller, Ali Ansari spent more than a year meeting with master distillers throughout Europe and experimenting with different fermentation and distillation methods to perfect the recipe for DASH. Upon doing so, Ansari returned to Texas to pursue his dream of producing his ultra-premium vodka. He formed Limited Spirits, LLC (“Company”), and secured the federal and state permits necessary to operate a distillery; he designed DASH’s bottle, label, and packaging; and he located and purchased a land in Brookshire, Texas on which he designed and built the Company’s state-of-the-art distillery featuring, among other things, a custom-designed copper pot still handcrafted in Scotland, and a fully automated high-speed bottling line.
Today, Ansari oversees the entire production process of DASH from fermentation through distillation and bottling, and DASH is produced from start to finish in the Company’s Brookshire distillery.
Embracing today’s craft distillation movement, Ansari offers his vodka as an innovative artesian alternative to the multi-national giants that currently dominate the liquor industry for premium spirits. It appeals to culinarians who are curious about its mysterious eastern origins, to mixologists eager to add a unique new offering and to consumers who increasingly want to be able to trace the pedigree of the brands they support.
