A fine Ukrainian Vodka which reinvents the traditional method of distillation that dates back over 100 year. The Ukraine is a country that has some of the finest land in the world for producing grain, the Ukrainian Black soil gives it the reputation of being being the breadbasket of Europe and it is the blend of the grains from the area that give Distil No9 its distinctive flavour, that and the pure water that pours down from the Carpathian mountain range. The vodka went through several research distillations until finally Distil No9 was chose as the finest of the batch.
Distilled 5 times and purified 4 times, twice through birch charcoal and twice through rhinestone and finally watered with the natural water, down to 40% ABV each batch produces 9,999 bottles, the end result is a fresh young vodka that is primed to drink at any occasion.
On the nose there is a rush of alcohol, which is not harsh, a light grainy sweetness and some herbal notes coming through. The pallet is fresh and has a bit of body to it giving a medium body, it’s still a little herbal with baked rye bread dough and spice, the finish is like fresh cut grass and a ling spicy finish.
Serving suggestions: Very sippable over ice and goes well with most mixers, coke, lemonade or tonic. I make one of my popular cocktails with Distil No 9 The Mustashio:
50 ml Distil No 9
20 ml Kahlua
20 ml Frangelico
5 ml Laphroaig 10 single malt
Pour each of the ingredients building up in order in to a rocks glass filled with ice and serve, don’t stir. To Garnish I like a single star anise and and smouldering cinnamon stick.
