Dima's Vodka donating profits to Ukrainian relief charities

Ukrainian vodka brand Dima's has pledged to donate 100 per cent of proceeds from its bottled cocktail range to Ukrainian relief charities amid the escalating conflict in the country.

When purchasing four of Dima's bottled vodka cocktails, priced at £50, all the money - not just profit - will be split between Ukrainian charities including British-Ukrainian Aid and Come Back Alive.

Thousands of Ukrainians have been forced from their homes since Russia launched an invasion in the country last week, which has seen both military and civilian sites targeted. The humanitarian crisis is predicted to escalate as the Russian offensive continues, with many Ukrainian citizens already struggling to access basic necessities such as food, water and power.

Ukraine's leaders have requested urgent international support, not only to help its citizens, but also to equip its military (which includes volunteer forces) to defend against Russian troops.

Created by mixologists Marian Beke (The Gibson) and Tony Pescatori (Nightjar), the Dima's Vodka cocktail range includes: the Electropolitan, a take on the Cosmopolitan; the sweet yet savoury Dirty Fig Martini; Kyiv's Coffee, a reimagined Espresso Martini; and the Pickled Gimlet.

This initiative follows a fundraiser on 28 February, held in collaboration between Dima's Vodka and Ukrainian-owned bar Pinch, which raised more than £5,000 for British-Ukrainian Aid.
