Babička Original Wormwood Vodka
Babička, which means means grandmother in Czech, was also the name of the herb women who, many centuries ago, sold herbs and potions throughout Bohemia.
Inspired by these 16th Century, Bohemian witches’ brews, Babička vodka is distilled in Europe’s oldest distillery, near the city of Prostejov in the Czech Republic, in operation since 1518, and celebrating 500 years in 2018.
Babička is distilled from Moravian corn with the addition of wormwood and a special blend of herbs, with spring water drawn from a deep 10,000-year-old spring.
The corn spirit (therefore gluten free) is incredibly smooth and the herbs give a unique botanical flavour with a delicate finish.
Puffing Billy Steam Vodka
Puffing Billy Steam Vodka is the purest expression of the barley spirit pot-distilled from locally grown barley at The Borders Distillery. Filtration would strip away the delicious flavours and soft textures of the barley, so the task of smoothing the spirit is handed to Puffing Billy, the distillery’s Carterhead still.
Distilled through copper for purity, and then steamed through charcoal for smoothness – the resulting vodka is brimful of character with an incredible creamy mouthfeel. Steam Smoothed. Never Filtered.
