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.
Terrific authentic Russian vodka made with a mix of wheat and rye, and filtered through charcoal made from the stones of peaches and apricots. A great all-rounder, good from the freezer or in cocktails.
The old presentation of Blavod Vodka – a black vodka distilled from molasses and coloured with a tannin-rich Southern Asian herb called catechu which does not affect the flavour, but is claimed to make the taste smoother.
A bottle of Grasovka's Bisongrass vodka, made using the bison grass that grows in the Bialowieza national park on the border between Poland and Belarus. Best served in the traditional way, chilled and mixed with apple juice.
Quadruple-distilled at 42 degrees below the equator in New Zealand - where the air is the purest on Earth - using non GM wheat and some of the world's cleanest water: hardly surprising it tastes so good...
A special edition from Absolut, named for the fact that every bottle in the range is 'unique' - each has a numbered label and the same bottle shape, but other than that they are painted with different colours and shapes making each one different.
Please note that due to the nature of the bottle yours will not look like the one in the picture.
A very high quality clear vodka from Koskenkorva in Finland. Distilled over 250 times (no not an error), this is produced from glacier water and barley from the distillery's own fields, resulting in an exceedingly pure vodka.
A bottle of Smirnoff Black in a special outer canister in the shape of a traditional Russian matrioshka doll. The vodka is produced in a pot still and then filtered through an incredible seven tons of charcoal.
Aylesbury Duck Vodka is made using Canadian soft white winter wheat. Distilled in three column stills, it is reduced to bottling strength with water from a well in Mendocino county in northern California. A crisp vodka with slight citrus notes.
