Black Cherry Vodka
After a few years in the wilderness flavoured vodka is blowing up again. And the very best of the new wave that we’ve discovered is Vestal Black Cherry Vodka.
While other brands clamour to become ‘Super Premium’, Vestal remains staunchly ‘Craft’. And your taste buds will tell you the difference.
Vast quantities of black sour cherries are painstakingly split and macerated in rich and creamy potato vodka. After a month and half, a tiny amount of sugar is added, which makes the juice drop out into the vodka. But don’t be fooled, that sugar doesn’t make this a sickly sweet, low-strength liqueur. Oh no! This is a dry and full-throttle 40% ABV vodka with more cherry flavour than you thought humanly possible. Luxurious and velvety, but the bite of proper Polish vodka, it tastes like Black Forest gateau steeped in concentrated cherry juice. Sip it neat with dessert or dark chocolate, mix it into a Black Cherry Martini, or pour it over ice and top with cola to create a mind-blowing and very grown-up interpretation of Cherry Coke.
Vestal Vodka is created by Will Borrell, who is not only an honest, affable and extremely knowledgeable chap, but also the brother of Razorlight frontman Johnny. With family links to Poland, he can regale you with stories of tasting moonshine made in barns using that year’s harvest of weird and wonderful potatoes, each one with its own unique character, not dissimilar to vintage variations and grape varieties in wine. Having established three successful neighbourhood bars located in London’s Kentish Town, Camden and Kings Cross, two in repurposed Victorian public toilets and one on a barge, he’s a man who really knows his onions (or should that be potatoes?) when it comes to cocktails. Making his vodka a must-have. The bottle has been given a stylish new look, incorporating recycled glass to make it as sustainable as it is delicious.
