Description:
Vestal Vodka has an exciting new liqueur.

Made from their own vodka and the syrup of hand-picked elderberry flowers, Vestal Amber is artfully packaged to highlight the beautiful golden/brown colour of the Baltic amber after which it is named.

Rich and with just enough sweetness to make it a traditional Polish accompaniment to cake and desserts, they've found that it makes a lovely aperitif (just add a cube or two of ice and some mint) or a wonderful base for longer drinks made with sparkling white wine, Prosecco or Champagne.

It can also be mixed with Vestal grain vodka, tonic water, ice and mint for a tinglingly refreshing aperitif.

In the pagan traditions of many European countries, elderberry was used to remove negative spells and heal numerous ailments. It was also believed to produce vivid and often beautiful dreams, and wish you these and much more from your encounter with Vestal Amber.

Producer Information

"To make our potato vodka you must first wash the potatoes and then boil them under pressure so that you finish up with a thick liquid. You ferment this for several days until you have 5-8 per cent of alcohol by volume. This you distil.

Alcohol becomes a vapor at a lower temperature than water so you caputure these vapors and concentrate them until you have 90 per cent plus alcohol. Add water and you have vodka the way we make it (although not as defined by the EU). Our "vodkas" have about 100 grams of methanol per hectolitre and the EU defines a vodka as a spirit with up to 10 grams of methanol per hectolitre. However Cognacs can have up to 200 grams and Grappa up to 1,000 grams.

So this is not about your health.Its about producing something that is clinically pure but tasteless and odorless. The way you get to 10 grams of methanol is to rectify (essentially redistil) three, four or five times. That removes the ethanol and all the taste. We retain the taste and "spirit of place" by distilling only once. If you do this then every single "vodka" you produce is different because you can't replicate the growing conditions, soils etc. Just like producing wine in fact."
