Today, being sustainable and eco-conscious is becoming more and more important in the world of vodka distilling. Organic market is seeing an increasing demand as people are shifting to organic produce. The term ‘organic’ actually refers to a whole, holistic system of farming that is dedicated to working with nature. Given how much care and effort goes into making vodka that’s eco-friendly, you can most likely expect it to be of a high quality, delivering delicious taste and well-balanced character. This is exactly the case of the Oxford Rye Organic Vodka.
Crafted in the heart of beautiful and historic Oxford, using only organic grain grown within 50 miles of The Oxford Artisan Distillery. The distillery is one of the few distilleries in the UK, that actually produce grain-to-glass vodka and oversee the whole production process of distilling. Embracing the way of regenerative farming and demonstrating that natural methods can still deliver high yield and boost biodiversity without using chemicals and pesticides.
The organic character of Oxford Rye Organic Vodka really comes through on the palate and delivers a very pleasant, dry cereal notes with herbal undertones of caraway. Subtle toffee sweetness is enhanced by chocolate aroma and hints of cocoa nibs. The mouthfeel offers a gentle rye spiciness, with delicate velvety body and a complex bitter-sweet nutty finish.
One of my favourite ways to enjoy a good-quality organic vodka, which has a lovely grainy character, is in a martini. Thanks to its full-bodied flavour the notes of heritage grain really come through in this Oxford Rye Vodka Martini. Make sure to stir yourself one as well.
