Distil No. 9 Vodka
Ukrainian based distillery Staritsky Levitsky is run by a vodka loving collection of like minded individuals. They spent many years travelling across the Vodka belt of Europe, trialling and testing many different vodkas before establishing their distillery in Kiev. They chose this particular spot as it is close to the Carpathian Mountains and they have a never ending supply of fresh, crystal clear water. No. 9 vodka uses their 9th vodka recipe and is distilled in batches of 9,999 bottles. It is distilled 5 times and purified 4 times (twice through young birch charcoal and twice through Rhinestone). On the nose is a pleasant freshness with a hint of spicy herbs. To taste there are notes of fresh, natural grain, fresh bread and spices with a touch of freshly cut grass.
