Cylinder® started with a simple idea – to use its founders’ bartender know-how to make a great-tasting, bartender-crafted vodka.
Created with the highest-quality ingredients and thoughtfully crafted through self-taught distillation and years of formulating, Cylinder is the original bartender-crafted vodka.
Stelios was raised by immigrant parents on the notion that resilience and perseverance are the 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 until his love for bartending led him to the idea of creating an apex spirit with the ability to seamlessly blend with any craft cocktail and hold its own on the rocks.
As a descendant of Mediterranean culture, where drinking in a social setting is a way to strengthen bonds among friends and family, Stelios capitalized on the gap in the taste and quality of the vodkas that were available on the market and Cylinder was born – by the trade, for the trade.
Winner of 20+ blind tasting awards, including a Platinum award from SIP, the only international spirits competition with only consumer judges, and a Gold Medals from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
