Hannover Vodka Atlantic Crossing

Price: €80 (US$88)

In the Oak‐Aged category, the panel was blown away by another expression from Hannover Gin Spirit of Niedersachsen ­– Hannover Vodka Atlantic Crossing 62%.

The Master-winning expression was applauded for its “zingy” aromas of “slight iodine, peat smoke, intense lemon and stone fruits”, which led to a “thick, full” mouthfeel with “beautiful integrated alcohol drying out the palate”.

Asked what made this particular vodka so special, one judge responded: “Complexity. The flavours are in layers, not all mushed together. Citrus pops out, the nose is amazing. It’s perfectly balanced, perfectly made. The smoke aroma adds a layer of comfort.”

The expression came highly commended by judges and just missed out on the top accolade of Taste Master.
