Potato Vodka D1
This smooth vodka is included in the D1 London luxury spirits range. As a vodka drinker I can tell D1 have created a tasty, moreish and silky vodka that your palate will love. This vodka balances two vastly different worlds to give an intriguing yet rewarding experience on the palate; on the one hand it’s buttery, sweet and creamy and on the other it’s vegetal, herbaceous and spicy. It has aromas of buttery potatoes and sourdough bread with an earthy background. The palate brings out the sweeter notes with honey, sweet fig and salted butter notes leading into a creamy white chocolate finish with hints of Szechuan pepper. A wonderful gift for vodka fans!
