Our own English wasabi

The same great taste in a mini bottle - great for tasting or gifting!

The elusive flavour of fresh wasabi captured like never before by carefully distilling English-grown wasabi in copper pot stills with an artisanal small batch vodka.  Single distilled and unfiltered, the spirit retains a natural creamy smoothness. Buttery at the start, brassica flavours of sweet mustard and radish give way to high notes of star anise and pepper, followed by a complex lingering warmth.

Fresh wasabi paste straight from our Dorset and Hampshire farms, is used for maximum flavour and to get the distinctive pungency of real wasabi.  Under the expert hand of award-winning master distiller Dr John Walters, the complexity of fresh wasabi is captured through an innovative distillation technique, allowing the enigmatic heat and flavour to shine like never before.

The wasabi paste is vacuum distilled to carefully extract and retain the wasabi flavour: principally by not exposing the wasabi to excessive heat. This prevents the volatile compound, allyl isothiocyanate, from breaking down preserving pungency and accompanying brassica flavour notes. The usual method of distilling a vodka, or even a gin, would destroy these flavours. 

It is extremely rare to find single distilled vodka as the technique is very difficult to accomplish. By carefully distilling the vodka in one shot, to avoid impurities in the first place, a harsh filtration process is avoided and the unique quality and texture is retained. 

For true wasabi lovers we recommend enjoying neat or over ice, however the flavour profile is perfectly suited to a Bloody Mary. It can also be enjoyed in a classic vodka martini recipe for a fiery adaptation, over ice, with soda water or your choice of mixer
