Spitfire Heritage Distillers has announced the release of Supermarine Vodka, following the success of its single estate, small batch botanical gin. The move comes just 10 months after the gin was launched to market.
At 54% the vodka can be enjoyed neat, ideally from a frozen shot glass, (or over ice and with tonic if preferred). Supermarine Vodka is named after the company that created the WWII Spitfire – and Supermarine vodka is at the heart of Spitfire Heritage Gin.
Created by master distiller John Walters in Cambridgeshire, Supermarine Vodka has no flavours or botanicals added, with the vodka a result of a highly specialised distilling process.
Brand owner Ian Hewitt say: “We are incredibly pleased with the finish of this vodka. It is elegantly balanced and offers a delicate pallet while staying true to the roots of the best vodkas. Yes it’s British and, yes, it holds its head up with the best of them.”
Spitfire Heritage Gin, launched May/June 2016, is listed across a range of distributors, including Hammonds of Knutsford, Enotria and Coe, Charles Wells and Bibendum, is on sale at Wine Rack and independent bars and restaurants, in bars across all Armed Forces UK facilities through ISS Defence and selling in the Spirits Room at Harrods.
