The chardonnay provides light sweet floral notes of fresh apple and pear on the nose. On sipping the vodka has a full-bodied mouthfeel. It is smooth with a light citrus zest and creamy texture, ending with a soft sweet peppery note.

Creditation: We are small green business certified and ethically certified by the Good Shopping Guide.

Refill Packs: We are currently designing refill pouches for our Vodka. These will appear by June.

Chardonnay Vines: The distillery is sat on the organic vineyards of Domaine Hugo and OffBeat Wines. Every year after the harvest the winery has several tonnes of pomace (crushed grape) and lees (liquid sediment) which is normally disposed of. Both items contain great flavour and natural sugars, allowing us to ferment them.

We take the Chardonnay pomace and over the winter allow it to rest in barrel with our wheat spirit. It is then double distilled in the early spring. The used pomace is then taken out to the compost beds, where it is chipped up and recycled into fertiliser for the vines in the late spring. The unique character of the vintage will change each year.

Bottles: 100% of bottle is recycled (glass, labels and cork).

Packaging: Our bottles are shipped using Flexi Hex, which is an innovative, sustainable, eco-friendly protective product that allows for the safe and secure shipping of bottles. It was created with the environment and sustainability in mind, their honeycomb sleeves and boxes are biodegradable, recyclable, plastic free, made from sustainably sourced materials and manufactured carbon neutral.

Refill packs are shipped in our recycled card board boxes, which you can post back to us using our Freepost labels. Just post the box or refill pouch back into your nearest post box.

We continue to evolve and improve.

A really delicious vodka and a fantastic bottle

John Leacey (Didcot, GB)

We bumped in to the maker at the Winchester Christmas market, he’d sold all he had but a small taster convinced us to buy a bottle on spec. This is the only vodka we have ever drunk neat such is the flavour and smoothness of the spirit. It’s a fresh twist on an old favourite that’s both quirky and a delight to the tastebuds.
