Boatyard Vodka

Boatyard Vodka bottle

70cl, 41% ABV

Malted Irish wheat is steeped in hot water to produce a sugary liquid known as 'wort'. Once this is cooled, Champagne yeast is added and left to ferment for seven days. The resulting alcoholic liquiid, the 'wash', is then distilled three times in our 500 litre 'Mr Gusion' still to 96% ABV. Finally, purified water is added to the high-strength alcohol to bring it down to a smooth 41% ABV.

Tasting Notes

Nose

Creamy, with a soft caramel sweetness. A touch of citric acidity lurks behind: candied lemon slices and a squirt of juice.

Palate

The caramel sweetness from the nose dominates the palate, balanced by a touch of pithy lemon. Dark sugars hide at the back, and the creaminess comes through in the soft texture. There is a touch of heat at the back of the palate, with some gently prickly alcohol.

Finish

Candied lemon and butterscotch.

Comment

A rounded and mouth-filling vodka with balanced sweetness.
