This is a super smooth vodka, quadruple distilled on site using Ancient mineral water from Swaledale. It's called the Smokey Ram as it's been vapour infused through Yorkshire hay-smoked black peppercorns, which brings it a light smokey nose and a peppery sweet palate, and a dry finish.
The team at the Yorkshire Dales Distillery have provided these tasting notes:
Nose: Sweet rye flavours backed up with a bold earthy grass note. Pepper and light grain. A hint of icing sugar.
Palate: Light and gentle. White pepper up front, with perfect balance of subtle sweetness. Medium body. Fragrant, with a hint of aniseed and minerals.
Finish: Calm and delicate, with a pleasing dryness of grain.
Colburn, Yorkshire Dales
Family run craft distillery on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, established by husband and wife pair, Tony and Sarah.
They set up the the distillery in a small village on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, near the home they have lived in for most of Tony's army career.
They develop, distill and bottle at the premises, taking the process from end-to-end. The spirits are produced using traditional techniques and are created in very small batches - sometimes as few as 50 bottles at a time!
To give back to the community they call home, the couple is committed to hiring and training veterans, ex-offenders, young people and the long-term unemployed.
