Think you know Vodka?
How a new breed of distillers are shaping the next chapter of Vodka...
Vodka is a spirit often forgotten in the world of fine spirits. At the Spirit Show we’re hoping to bring some light on this timeless spirit and show how a new wave of passionate distillers are creating some exceptional Vodkas.
“Vodka’s out there naked. It doesn’t hide behind botanicals, it doesn’t hide behind maturation. It’s the raw materials, the water and the art of the distillation.” – Tony Abou- Ganim
Veronika from Girls.Drink.Vodka has researchedÂ the many factors which affect the taste of Vodka, the terroir for one can produce hugely varied spirits. The idea of terroir is that natural and cultural elements from the soil, wind, water, slope & sunlight translate into the flavour.
An often overlooked factor of terroir is the human influence in the vodka. The input of care, knowledge and passion of vodka making is always reflected in the finished product.
Some are created to be inoffensive and bland, perhaps to appeal to the mass market. Thankfully, many are lovingly crafted by individuals wanting to express their creativity through their vodka.
We have some of these incredible Vodka brands coming to the Spirit Show.
Curio Spirits will have their delicious Cardamom & Cocoa Nib Vodkas at the show. Triple distilled vodka is gently infused with Peruvian Cocoa Nibs to capture the deep chocolate taste for the Cocoa Nib Vodka. For the Cardamom Vodka pristine Cornish spring water & organic cardamom seeds are infused and re-distilled to create a four times distilled smooth tasting vodka that leaves a warming aftertaste on the palate.
Caledonia Spirits will be bringing Barr Hill Vodka to the UK for the first time. Barr Hill Vodka is crafted entirely from honey at micro-distillery on the banks of the Lamoille River in Caledonia Country of the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. Honey is carefully fermented in small batches, then gently distilled in custom stills. The Barr Hill Vodka reflects the essence of the soil and flowers visited by the bees.
D1 London Spirits will be showcasing their Potato Vodka. D1 Potato Vodka is a spirit of outstanding character that combines delicious creamy smoothness with the diverse cultural references of Jacky Tsai’s Stained Glass Skull. Delectable over ice and matchless in a martini, D1 sets a new benchmark for luxury vodka.
ISFJORD will be bringing their Premium Arctic Vodka. Based on the finest Blonde wheat, distilled five times, and blended with super soft and pure iceberg water from the Arctic’s of Greenland.
