Just as wine in southern Europe was developed to be enjoyed with meals, so were the vodkas of northern Europe, where the terroir wasn’t suitable for grapes. Our/London’s master distillers were tasked with creating the smoothest, lightest vodka possible from British wheat. All of this is done from their urban micro-distillery, under the arches of Hackney Downs station.
Nose: Floral and citrus notes with pine undertone.
Taste: Smooth light creaminess.
Finish: Clean and crisp.

The word vodka is derived from Slavic and translates as “little water”. The world’s first written mention of the drink and of the word “vodka” was in 1405 from Akta Grodzkie recorder of deeds, in the court documents from the Palatinate of Sandomierz in Poland. The spirit is thought to be considerably older than that having been a part of Slavic culture as far back as the 8th century and as with many other spirits was created originally for medicinal purposes.
