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.

Apple juice comes through strongly alongside the elderflower and is ultimately a satisfying flavour. Enjoy over ice.

You can enjoy it neat, but they also recommend trying it in a hot chocolate if you fancy a delicious, warming drink.
Finland's Koskenkorva has come up with this liqueur based on their award-winning vodka and that peculiarly Scandinavian commodity: salt-liquorice. We know, we know - it sounds awful, but our fair-haired friends absolutely adore it.
