Voted one of the World Best Vodkas in 2020 by the International Wine and Spirits Competition!
After years of spirits production, Tayport Distillery has finally released its refined and premium Malt Barley Vodka. Our premium vodka is produced using Scotland’s finest Malt Barley. Our vodka has won an outstanding gold award for it’s smooth, refined and creamy taste.
Why is it so important to make refined and premium vodka? Premium vodka is immediately recognisable by the texture and smooth mouthfeel. To create a vodka at a consistently high standard we charcoal filter further refining the barley vodka. We slowly filter over several days carefully refining the spirit until we get the perfect malt barley flavour and character into our wholly Scottish vodka. This step defines us against other distilleries, producing a smooth and delicious vodka is no easy feat. We have honed our skills of mashing, fermenting and distilling. Experimented with different products other than malted barley and yeast, creating a base spirit that is unique in flavour and texture.
Here is what the judges had to say;
'Comforting cacao nibs enveloped in rich chocolate loaf and laced with malted spiced vanilla. Smooth and luxurious; a gorgeously unctuous textured sweet nectar. Highly accomplished.'
A worthy mention is that our craft barley vodka has been featured in Forbes as one of the best vodkas in the world, you can read more about other world-class vodkas and ours by clicking here.
Scottish Vodka - Supporting Local
Tayport Distillery’s ambition has always been to create a Scottish vodka that was entirely Scottish. Mash, fermented, distilled, bottled, labelled and waxed on-site. We love a challenge at Tayport Distillery, and we certainly set ourselves one to create a local vodka. However, our Malt Barley Vodka brings us so much satisfaction when we change the way people believe vodka tastes, bringing them a spirit that is smooth and velvety.
What is it that makes our vodka so unique? We believe that our Scottish Vodka is unique because of the Malted Barley that we use. We collect it from a lovely family farm just below Edinburgh. When the harvest is over and it’s time to begin the malting process, Alison gets ready to turn the grains. She turns the grain to allow it to germinate at a fairly high temperature, which we believe is where much of our flavour comes from.
Now more than ever, we want to celebrate Scottish farmers and all the work that they have put in during a very difficult time. Many of our products depend on their brilliant produce and we feel incredibly fortunate to be able to work with them to produce our spirits.
We know that gin has taken some of the limelight away from vodka recently, however that hasn’t stopped Espresso Martinis from raising the game and becoming the most popular cocktail of 2020. Here is our recipe:
- 60ml Malt Barley Vodka by Tayport Distillery
- 30 ml Fresh Espresso
- 15 ml Coffee Liqueur
- 10mls Sugar Syrup
Combine all the ingredients in a shaker and dry shake for 10 seconds. Add ice and shake for a further 10 seconds. Strain into a chilled coupé or ‘v-shaped’ glass. Garnish with 3 coffee beans.
Earl Tay Martini
- 50mls Malt Barley Vodka
- 12.5mls Giffard Creme de Cacao
- 12.5mls Earl Grey Demerara Syrup
- 2 Dashes Aztec Chocolate Bitters
- Orange Peel for Garnish
In a tall jug or cocktail shaker, fill halfway with ice and add all the ingredients and stir down for 15 seconds until the liquid is fully chilled and slightly diluted. Take your orange peel around the edge, removing any pith from the inside. As you pour your drink into a coupe glass, gently realise the essence of the orange by squeezing the peel towards the glass.
