Chilgrove moves into grape-based vodka

Chilgrove Spirits is set to launch what it claims is the first British vodka distilled from grapes as a limited edition.

Following on from the launch of grape-based Chilgrove Gin in September 2014, Chilgrove Vodka is made using neutral spirit distilled from grapes and mineral water filtered through the Sussex Downs.

Created by Charles Maxwell at Thames Distillers, the vodka is described as having an “elegant and crisp character”.

“Chilgrove Vodka is clean and soft on the nose with just a hint of fruit,” said Maxwell. “On the palate it is smooth and soft with very slight earthy notes. It has a good long smooth lingering finish. A superior vodka.”

The Chilgrove brand was founded by husband and wide team Christopher and Celia Beaumont- Hutchings.

There are just 3,500 individually numbered bottles of the first batch of Chilgrove Vodka (40% abv) available at an RRP of between £29 and £35.

In November last year, Chilgrove Gin made its export debut in Canada, capitalising in the country’s “soaring interest” in the category. In addition to the UK, the variant is also available in Holland.
