Whether it's at the Beverly Hills Hotel, Carbone, Catch, the Four Seasons, Montage, or Il Pastaio, you'll likely find yourself with a glass of Carbonadi when you order a vodka martini at these fine Los Angeles institutions. Ever since the Robb Report first broke the story on Piedmonte, Italy's Carbonadi Vodka a few years back, there's been no looking back for the luxury label. It's the talk of the town, especially at high-end Italian restaurants.
What makes Carbonadi so luxurious, you ask? You'll understand everything after the first sip, but it starts with Italian-grown winter wheat and it ends with a unique finishing process that involves clean alpine water from the Piedmonte Alps, micro-oxygenation, and filtration through rare carbonados—aka black diamonds. Yes, this vodka is filtered through diamonds! But before you laugh at what sounds like a gimmick, carbonados are highly porous and can remove impurities that other filtration methods cannot. The proof is in the glass. No vodka we've tasted is as clean, smooth, or crystaline on the market right now.
