The journey to create the finest spirits continues with fermentation. Our vodka is made from just three ingredients; milled spring barley, water and yeast. This combination works its magic together to convert the sugars into alcohol, which the distillation will later extract and condense to make vodka.
Formally tasting a vodka or gin is a great way to get a really focused experience of its taste, mouth feel and bouquet. This does not necessarily involve wearing a bow tie or ball gown – rather, it’s all about serving and tasting the spirit in the right way.
