Balkan is the strongest vodka on the UK market at a whopping 88% ABV. As such it should never be drunk neat, but makes a great 'super-charger' for vodka cocktails.

Great for making herbal tintures if you cannot get hold of Everclear or other pure ethanol. Regular 40% Vodka burns your throat on the way down. This stuff burns the second it hits your lips. TREAT WITH RESPECT!

This is a monsterous drink. Too strong maybe and a little unpleasant. Needs to be treated with a great deal of respect. I reckon sweet fruit mixers are a must. Only a hardened Vodka lover will go back for a second glass.

Ask a vodka bar for spyritus, they didn't have any but recommended this. Albeit not as good, has a great kick that most vodkas dont come close to.

I work for revo and love to get people wasted on the stuff as well as indulge in a few tipples of it myself on a Revolution staff night out.

Always order a glass of water with this stuff. My girlfriend and her mates didn't know what had hit them when I ordered a round of these.

At the end of the night, at Revolution in Liverpool, We had 2 of these, I was fine until then, and slaughtered after. Fantastic drink. "it should never be drunk neat" - Thats what spirits are made for!!

Had 2 shots of this within seconds of each other last night. It felt like the firey pits of hell burning me to my very soul. I think it might have stopped my heart for a few seconds too. Bad times :(

Had 3 of these shots within 20 mins of each other once, as well as heavily mixing my drinks. Lets just say the train journey home the following day was not a pleasant one! You feel the effects of it instantly n you should have it with a glass of water lol

Had this a few times in Revo's - if you're bloated with lagers and fed up of coctails and want to kick start your night have one of these - you'll feel the alchohol kicking in straight after knocking it back.The chap serving it, lit it in one glass and poured it into another! It was still lit!My tip, take it real easy on this but don't sip it!

I have two every birthday,. next year I hope to make Fifty
