Focused on quality, transparency and sustainability, BOTECO connects smart palates to honestly priced ultra-premium vodka by putting its liquid before label.
When brands choose to invest in their image more than the quality of their craft, it suggests that it’s appropriate to expect people to purchase inferior products with inflated price tags. We believe that’s disrespectful and dishonest. By prioritizing quality and taste over flashy bottles and celebrity endorsements, BOTECO is able to give people an ultra-premium vodka for a price that is fair and honest.
Our aim is to do one thing and one thing only: connect discerning palates to honestly priced, ultra-premium vodka by putting the quality of our liquid over the visibility of our label. You don’t choose vodka brands based on their ability to convey status or define the content of your character, you choose them based on their merits and the drinking experience they provide. For us, focusing on anything more than creating the highest quality vodka would demonstrate a self-flattering sense of importance and compromise our ability deliver the best possible product.
As Miles Davis once suggested, the notes you don’t play are sometimes more important than the notes you do. In other words, more doesn’t always mean better. In fact, adding more to something often indicates an attempt to conceal or mask unpleasant traits or qualities. BOTECO Vodka has nothing to hide and we strive to eliminate excess - excessive production, excessive packaging, excessive marketing - from our expressions so that people can experience our vodka without distraction or pretext.
The more resources required to produce a product, the more costly that product becomes. And those costs aren’t limited to the price you pay at the counter; there are environmental and social costs as well. By minimizing the amount of material required to produce each bottle of BOTECO Vodka, we are not only able to reduce the shelf price of each bottle, but the costs incurred by other, equally important things, like the environment.
Not all agricultural commodities are created equal. Some require massive amount of water, while others have very large footprints and need endless acres of land. As a member of the grass family, sugarcane is an extremely hardy crop that isn’t nearly as resource intensive as many of its counterparts. Because of this, BOTECO Vodka is able to produce more product with fewer resources, which is good for everyone.
By only using materials that have been - or can be - recycled, BOTECO Vodka demonstrates its commitment to reducing the impact that the brand has on the environment and the activities that contribute to climate change. On top of that, the material that we do use is used sparingly and with great care. We view this as a win for everyone, regardless of their position on issues related to environmental responsibility, because prioritizing sustainability allows us to minimize our impact on the environment, as well as reduce the price people pay for our vodkas.
