The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
The seed of enlightenment is in every being. It just takes the realization to become enlightened.
BUDDHA ZEN VODKA
Buddha Zen Vodka is hand-crafted in Japan from the distillation of the root of the lotus flower, and a sacred purity process.
In order to live up to Buddha’s standards, we have developed a special filtration process that absorbs the mind of Buddha during filtration and gives spiritual enlightenment to the open hearted.
We pass this purity on in an exclusive 750ml Buddha bottle.
The unique sweetness and depth of flavor of the lotus root gives an elegant, mellow roundness to this vodka, and mixes harmoniously with Asian Fusion inspired ingredients like green tea, sake and yuzu citrus.
Drop by drop is the water pot filled. Likewise, the wise man, gathering it little by little, fills himself with good.
• Pure vodka from lotus •
“Everywhere the baby Buddha stepped, a lotus flower bloomed”
Raised in the muddy water amidst suffering, but growing skywards to bloom, unsullied and pure, as if floating free of attachment, the lotus flower symbolizes the purity of the mind enlightened through Buddhism.
Just as the lotus rises up from the depths of muddy ponds and lakes to blossom immaculately above the water’s surface, so too can the human mind develop the virtues of Buddha, and transcend desire and attachment to reveal its essentially pure nature.
This belief inspired us to craft a vodka that carries with it the spirit of Buddha to enlighten the world.
Our Buddha Zen Vodka passes through a unique filtration system containing Zen Stones which were blessed by a Buddhist monk in Kamakura, home of the Great Buddha. Each drop of Buddha Zen Vodka touches the five blessed Zen Stones, which also represent the five elements of the Buddhist Universe:
Earth, Water, Fire, Wind and Sky.
“Enlightenment is when a wave realizes it is the ocean.”
Buddha Zen Vodka – born from the distillation of the root of the lotus flower, and filtered through blessed Zen Stones, this vodka takes you on a journey of enlightenment. Break free from the shackles of your daily grind and find your own nirvana in every sip of this truly spiritual spirit.
Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they already have.

A human said to Buddha “I want happiness.” Buddha said to the human, “first, remove the ‘I’, that’s ego. Next, remove ‘want’, that’s desire. Now, you are left with only happiness.”
