Discovery Communications-owned channel Animal Planet has set a January air date for the distillery-focused docuseries Alaska Proof (pictured).
Produced by New York- and LA-based Matador Content, the previously announced 8 x 30-minute series will examine the unconventional approach behind every bottle of vodka manufactured at The Alaska Distillery. Following company CEO Toby Foster and his team, the series documents the award-winning distiller’s expeditions to find the “purest ingredients” along the frozen landscape.
Lauded for their smoky salmon-infused vodka, the expedition teams battle frigid temperatures, bears and treacherous terrain in search of Arctic ice worms, shed caribou antlers, fireweed honey and 10,000-year-old free-floating glacier water from Prince William Sound.
The series was developed by Andy Berg, VP of development for Animal Planet.
Executive producers for Matador Content are Jay Peterson, Todd Lubin, Jerry Carita and Dave Larzelere. Animal Planet’s Keith Hoffman is also set to exec produce, with Sarah Russell serving as associate producer.
Alaska Proof will debut on January 14 at 9 p.m. EST/PST.
