Bartender Inspired. Bartender Crafted.

Cylinder began with its founder, Stelios, the son of immigrant parents who was raised on the notion that resilience and perseverance were his keys to success. Instilled with a back-breaking work ethic from a young age, Stelios juggled multiple jobs while his passions pulled him in different directions. Coined with the phrase “jack of all trades, and master of none”, Stelios embarked on the mission to channel his love for bartending and master his appreciation and knowledge for distilled spirits.

As a descendant of Mediterranean culture, where drinking in a social setting is a way to strengthen bonds among friends and family, and being a bartender by trade—Stelios quickly saw a gap in the taste and quality of the vodkas available at the time and was determined to create a spirit that would set the bar for the spirits industry. Thoughtfully crafted, through self-taught distillation and years of formulating to find the perfect balance of flavor and smoothness, Cylinder Vodka was born—by the trade, for the trade.

You won’t find a smoother vodka. We promise.
