Ogilvy’s potatoes grow a short tractor ride from where they’re transformed into vodka. Everything is undertaken on thier own farm to form a small-batch local liquor of international quality (they aim for class production rather than mass production).
Their singular spirit is warm and welcoming, smooth and sweet. Its neutral essence makes it a great option for cocktails and a natural choice for the gluten-intolerant. Yet it’s a smart pick for anyone wishing to try a vodka that offers purity of palate alongside hidden depths of flavour.
The proof is in the partaking.
Nose: Warm aromas tinged with fresh apricots and citrus fruit, green grass and walnuts. Taste: Smooth warmth of potato spirit, a sweet, creamy character with fruity esters, a hint of toffee and green pasture notes. Clean, balanced, a rich mouthfeel imbued with the mineral wealth of local land and water.
Aftertaste: A long, lush finish with black pepper, earthy charcoal and a wee whisper of citrus.
