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.
A bottle of Imperial collection's Gold vodka. Using their own grown golden wheat and pure glacial water from Lake Ladoga near the Arctic circle and a 12 stage filtration process, this is an elegant, clean and fresh vodka.
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.
Black Death Vodka can trace its history back to 1906 when it was created by the Sigurdsson family in Iceland. The brand hit the headlines in 1992 when it was temporarily banned in the USA for 'promising poison and plague but delivering only vodka'. A beet-based vodka, this is a pure and crisp English vodka.
Absolut Blank is a limited edition bottled designed in collaboration with Mario Wagner. Mario Wagner is a German Artist who is known, mostly, for his pop art inspired style of work. His art has been featured in a number of prestigous magazines including Esquire and The New York Times Magazine.
A very special Russian Standard, Gold is lightly flavoured with extracts of Siberian ginseng, known as 'golden root' in Russian. Russian Standard Gold is the perfect gift for the discerning vodka drinker.
Black Cow was the world's first vodka to be made entirely from milk. Made in West Dorset, in the proximity of Bridport, the milk is separated in curds and whey. The curds are used to make cheese, of which one is Barber's 1833 cheddar, which won the 2012 World Cheese Awards Cheddar Trophy. The whey is then fermented and distilled to make the vodka. The texture is, maybe somewhat unsurprisingly, rather creamy.
Reyka is a small batch vodka produced in Iceland using a process that includes the filtration through lava rock. Made in one of only six carter head stills in the world, this is made from a mixture of wheat and barley.
A Chinese-made vodka, named for a county in Hunan, northern China. Grain from the area in and around Baojing is used to make the mash and the resulting spirit is filtered through 168 carats of diamonds, a number representing 'being on the road to infinite prosperity' in Chinese custom, according to the makers. A crisp vodka suited to drinking neat or in martinis as well as in cocktails.
Hangar One is an American made vodka, produced in California by St George Spirits, also famed for their absinthes and whiskies. It's a blend of pot distilled grape and grain spirits (viognier and wheat respectively), with the grape spirit softening the flavour to create a high quality clean vodka.
Sipsmith’s Barley Vodka is distilled from the finest English Barley and blended with exceptionally pure Cotswold spring water. Meticulous attention to detail in the production process mean the vodka is so pure that it requires no filtration or adulteration, delivering a deliciously smooth and buttery taste with an extraordinarily soft mouth feel.
