Aval Dor Vodka From Cornwall - 40% Abv

Product Description

Aval Dor, which takes its name from the Cornish translation of potato, is produced from the finest King Edward potatoes, grown on the cliff tops at Colwith Farm. This vodka has to be tasted to be believed. It is so aromatic with so many complex botanicals in its aroma and flavour if you closed your eyes you might thinkk you were drinking a fine cognac.

Steve Dustow is one of the ?good guys?, a fifth generation member of a Cornish family of potato farmers, who are based at Colwith Farm, situated at Treesmill, near Par in South Cornwall. Steve is an Exeter University graduate, who went on to become a project manager for one of the West Country?s leading construction companies. However, disillusioned with what he saw in the industry, Steve decided to return to the family farm and diversify into the production of potato vodka. When we recently tasted this amazing spirit, we were extraordinarily impressed by its intensity, floral and spice-driven aromatics and silky viscosity. Even when blind tasted against leading specialist English potato vodkas, this hand-crafted elixir stood out head and shoulders above them.

This is very much a small-batch, artisan, high quality vodka, distilled in a tiny 200-litre copper batch still and blended with mineral water lifted from an aquifer deep beneath the farm, to create this smooth and creamy vodka. The secret of Aval Dor?s intensity and richness isthe fact that it is only single-distilled, resulting in only the heart? (the best part of the potatoes) being used. A lot of distillers will tell you that the more times you distill the spirit, the better it is. That really is a lot of nonsense, because it is only when the raw materials are poor that a vodka needs to be distilled many times!
