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.
Kauffman Special Vodka is a non vintage release from this premium brand. Using wheat as a base, in line with the rest of the range, it is distilled 14 times and then filtered twice - through quartz sand and birch coal. An incredibly pure premium vodka.
A large 1.5 litre bottled of Beluga's excellent Russian vodka. Clean and crisp with just a hint of grainy flavour. Made with malted barley as a base, this is lightly flavoured with honey, oak and milk thistle.
A properly authentic luxury Russian vodka that undergoes a unique five-stage filtration through specially-modified charcoal made from the stones of peaches and apricots. Each authentic Russian bottle is manually painted with the traditional Russian Palekh lacquer technique and is signed by an individual artist.
A wheat vodka from the Cognac region (a la Citadelle), this has been distilled nine (yes, nine...) times in copper Alambic stills and is micro-oxygenated after distillation for extra refinement. Micro-oxygenation means blowing lots of tiny bubbles through liquid and is a process more usually employed by First-Growth Bordeaux. There's been a buzz about this vodka, so we thought we'd try it - click for our tasting notes. One of the first ever certified Kosher vodkas.
A hugely desirable special edition release from Dan Aykroyd's Canadian vodka brand, Crystal Head, in honour of the 50th anniversary of the Rolling Stones. In the zippered display box are a bottle of Crystal Head vodka with special cork stopper; a glass stopper with an etched Stones 'Lips' logo; and an exclusive double CD of live Stones hits including Wild Horses, Gimme Shelter and Sympathy for the Devil. This CD is unavailable for sale anywhere else.
A super premium vodka from Beluga, Gold Line is an impressively crisp and pure spirit packaged extravagantly. It even comes with a small hammer and brush to aid in the clean removal of the wax that seals the bottle.
A massive double-magnum of the wonderful Chase vodka - a superb potato vodka from the people who brought us Tyrrell's lovely crisps. Fabulously creamy and smooth - serve straight from the fridge for best effects.
