Made from Innovator, Asterix and Russet Burbank varieties of potato, Vestal Crafted Potato Vodka is well-balanced vodka that has been filtered once and is made specifically as a base for cocktails and other mixed drinks. The strong belief behind Vestal is that terroir can be felt in vodka, and that vodka doesn’t have to be flavourless. This is showcased in the vintages and fields named on the bottle.
ABOUT THE DISTILLERY
Based in northern Poland, Vestal is one of the last independently-produced vodkas.
ABOUT THE LIQUID
The potatoes used to create Vestal Vodka are picked from a family-estate in northern Poland. The different varieties of potatoes are picked early when they are small and full of flavour. Fussy about which variety of potato to plant, and exactly when and where to plant them, Vestal are aware that what a French winemaker would call terroir is equally important in the flavour and character of their Vodka. Therefore, they distil just once to capture and retain all the exotic aromas and tastes that give each of their small batches the character of both time and place.
