Why is texture so important?
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.
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.
Similar to the 1992 Blackcurrant Liqueur, the Raspberry Liqueur takes a lot of time and care to make sure that we produce a consistently premium liqueur that stands up to our rivals. Using Scottish fruit was always incredibly important to us as well as being able to honour making it wholly within Tayport.
