With over 1,000 years history behind it, Vodka is one of those drinks that may appear simple but is anything but.

A clear, bright liquid, with a delicate nose and a hint of sweetness. Extra smooth, it is creamy and elegant to taste. Perfect served chilled over ice, as a cocktail, or mixed with English Sparkling wine, a squeeze of lemon and wedge to garnish.
Bringing together Scottish oats and Cairngorm mountain spring water, Brochan Vodka creates an amazingly smooth and creamy experience. Oats have fallen out of favour in distilling, as they are classically difficult to work with, but with this 100% British vodka the effort has paid off in the honey nut, toasted oat, and gentle spice flavours that blend into the creamy body of the spirit.
