Producer Information

Key Information

Distilled near a world benchmark for air purity, 42 degrees below the equator and from GM Free wheat from the purist wheat-fields in the world.

Distilled three times, then the spirit is washed in spring water, reducing the level of alcohol to 6%. This cleans any remaining impurities. It is then distilled a fourth time to create totally pure spirit. This is high saturation distilling, with New Zealand Spring water, which is unique to 42 Below.

42 Below is a smooth, full, grain-based vodka similar in style to vodkas produced in Scandinavian countries, which differ from the potato and rye-based vodkas typical of Russia and Poland. A characteristic of grain-based vodkas is that they have a smoother taste than their rye or potato-based counterparts.

42 Below is batch-distilled just out of Wellington by a distiller with more than 20 years experience in the industry, using water that has attained the highest purity rating possible.

My bar recently brought in a new range of spirits, as I made my way through many samples I found myself in shock to discover that this is actually good, little or no burn, extremely soft and light. I didn't know New Zealanders could make such good vodka. Fair play!

Very smooth, very little flavour, very little bite at the back of the throat. An excellent vodka for drinking straight, or for mixing with more delicate flavours that would be masked by a lower quality vodka.
