Due to its versatility Vodka is the most consumed spirit in the world and is enjoyed neat, with mixers or as the key ingredient in popular cocktails including Bloody Marys, Martinis and Black Russians. It’s primarily composed of water and ethanol although it can have traces of impurities and flavourings. Traditionally Vodka is made from fermented grains such as wheat and rye although it can be produced from potato, barley, grapes, rice and corn. Vodka is traditionally distilled in Russia, Poland, Finland and Sweden but more recently big brands such as Grey Goose are being distilled in the west.

Sharp lemon barley and squished peach flavours show up primarily. Followed by waves of peach and wheat. The finish is surprisingly soft with a (you guessed it!) Peachy keen baked tartlet taste. Freeze me for best results. Great with freshly pressed orange juice.
An excellent pear vodka that opens up with lemon zest and autumnal fruits. The pear takes over soon after and follows all the way through to the bitter sweet finale. A great vodka that opens up myriad cocktail flavour oppurtunities. Serve frozen and over ice to get the best out of it.
Sharp black pepper and smoke notes on the entry followed by a breif show of grain and slightly hot spice. Finish is long , medium bodied and full of sharp cracked black pepper.

A super premium vodka from Beluga. Gold Line is an impressively crisp and pure spirit packaged in an extravagant leather box, complete with small hammer and brush to aid in the clean removal of the wax that seals the bottle.
Ultra slick business from the Russian boys. Crystal clean on the palette with soft lemon barley notes. The finish is super clean and leaves a face traints of barley and hay with moves into lemon and faint orange zest. Hats of to the Beluga boys. Chill as you would a Champagne.
Strong zesty lemon from the off. A touch of grain in the middle and then faint licquorice and lime flavours fold back to heavy lemon meringue and a firm, yet sweet and spiy kick to finish. Lemon lingers for quite a while. Great stuff.
