Having sold Tyrrells Potato Chips, the Williams Chase Group diversified into a new direction with their spuds. Chase vodka was first produced in April 2008 and became the world's first super premium English potato vodka, and by 2010, was already voted Best Vodka by San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The family grow, mash, ferment, strip and distil their own full pedigree, gluten free, King Edward & Lady Claire potatoes on their Herefordshire farm. They use only traditional artisan methods including a bespoke copper pot still for the initial charge and a unique 70 foot rectification column, reputedly the tallest in Europe, for two further distillations. Tasting note: Flawless and bright offering hints of sliced raw potato, furniture wax, dried oregano and white pepper. Light, gently peppery, medium dry delivery is delicately oily with suggestions of toasted marshmallow and meringue followed by hints of pepper, anise and citrus peel refreshing the finish. Textural and nicely balanced. 40% Alc./Vol.
