National Vodka Day
National Vodka Day on October 4th, offers the perfect occasion to raise a glass to this versatile spirit. Vodka is experiencing a renaissance, and at the forefront of this revival is Gattertop Drinks with the hopes of redefining expectations of what vodka is, and should be. They are taking the trauma out of the word and making vodka a more pleasant, elevated and flavourful experience for all.
Infused with all natural ingredients foraged from the orchard in spring and summer, Botanic Nº7 has garnered recognition as a true trailblazer in the vodka resurgence bringing authentic flavours into the heart of the spirit, creating an experience that sets a new standard for vodka.
This commitment to authenticity is the cornerstone of Botanic Nº7. While some spirits may rely on artificial additives to create flavour, Botanic Nº7 takes a different approach. The natural ingredients used to flavour the liquid are designed to taste like the British countryside in bloom; with notes of elderflower, rosemary, basil, apple blossom and nettle the vodka is floral and herbaceous in taste. It takes familiarities from gin, but by not flavouring with juniper the spirit lends itself to a more subtly flavourful drinking experience.
The vodka renaissance is not merely about reinventing a spirit; it's about celebrating the roots of vodka and infusing it with new life. Botanic Nº7 does just that, honouring the heritage of vodka, with its clean crisp base while pushing the boundaries of natural flavour. This approach has struck a chord with curious drinkers in search of naturally flavourful drinks.
