Crafted from a single crop of Maris Piper Potatoes
Spud the still is located metres from the potato fields
Utilises supermarket rejects to reduce food waste
We think it’s a shame that vodka has fallen out of fashion in recent years as it means less people are inclined to try this absolute gem! We wouldn’t encourage you to take a straight sip of any old vodka, but this is something else – exceptionally smooth is an understatement and customers are genuinely surprised when they taste this in store.
From the Distiller
Our singular spirit is warm and welcoming, smooth, and sweet. Its neutral essence makes it a great option for cocktails and a natural choice for the gluten intolerant. Yet it’s a smart pick for anyone wishing to try a vodka that offers purity of palate alongside hidden depths of flavour.
We strongly encourage you to try this one neat over ice with a slice of pear. Also works well as a long drink with flavoured tonic waters or in cocktails – we can confirm it makes a mean vodka martini!
The Jarrons family have farmed the land at Hatton of Ogilvy farm since 1910. Technological developments and issues of sustainability have changed the way the farm has been managed and run through history. With this in mind; Graeme and Caroline teamed up with a PHD student from Herriot Watt University’s distilling programme to produce potato vodka from their supermarket rejects, in order to diversify and reduce wastage. The Maris Piper potatoes are grown a short tractor ride from the still and the nutritious by-products of production is fed to the cows. This makes Scotland’s first potato vodka not only award winning for its taste, but also environmentally friendly.
