Vodka has become the most successful spirit in the last few years because it's the most versatile, mixing more readily with a wider range of ingredients than any other spirit. Vodka offers more cocktails, and inspires more new cocktails, than any other spirit, and it is cocktails that drive vodka's popularity.
Absolut is one of the world's best-selling vodka brands. A Swedish institution – its stylish, innovative marketing campaigns are legendary. Famed for its purity, Absolut has been producing quality vodka since 1879.
Belenkaya vodka is produced in Russia and not only filtered through 13 metres of coal, but is also put through a 9 step purification system to make sure that it's about as pure a spirit as they can make.
The famous Polish bestseller: Wyborowa is a double distilled rye vodka with the emphasis on quality - even its name means 'premium'. Full-bodied yet still extremely smooth, Wyborowa is a cut above standard vodka brands.
A set of three 20cl bottles of Boru Irish vodka. Comprising one each of their black, citrus and orange expressions, these are triple distilled and then gently filtered through ten feet of Atlantic Irish oak charcoal.
A half-bottle of Polish Pure Spirit from Polmos. At 79.9%, this is only for mixing, or as a 'float' to supercharge cocktails, where it contributes a surprising array of flavours as well as the extra alcohol. Don't drink it neat. Please.
Please note this bottle has a low fill level, as shown in the photograph.
