Savoy’s Beaufort Bar launches vodka
The Savoy’s Beaufort Bar in London has partnered with Northern Ireland’s Boatyard Distillery to release its first vodka.
Beaufort Bar Vodka was created after the London hotel bar noted that vodka was its best-selling spirit.
The “distinctive and flavourful” vodka is made from wheat, Champagne yeast and water.
On the palate, the expression is said to have a “creamy, smooth character with a blend of sweet savoury flavours and notes of beeswax”.
The bottle is adorned with a matte black label with a deep crimson embossed design inspired by the Beaufort Bar’s Art Deco interior.
Bottled at 43% ABV, the Beaufort Bar Vodka is recommended served in mixed drinks such as a Martini, or neat at room temperature.
The Beaufort Bar team is also creating a Highball serve for the new vodka.
Elon Soddu, head bartender at the Beaufort Bar, said: “The objective was to create an expression that really fulfils vodka’s potential.
“We believe that luxury service should work to excite our guests, therefore we have taken what is often an underrated spirit and created a new vodka which we hope will surprise our guests.
“We believe that flavoured vodkas are going to be a thing of the past and will be replaced by vodkas with flavour.”
The new vodka is available to order from The Beaufort Bar in London’s Savoy Hotel.
