Here's another interesting vodka, same price in both Tesco and at Amazon (whichever option works out better for you). Apparently another very smooth one (which my vodka-mad sister prefers)

  • De Kuyper is a Dutch Brand that make a wide range of fine liqueurs and spirits.
  • Hand crafted vodka made with Arctic spring water.
  • Beautifully textured and perfectly balanced with a long and very clean finish.

"Reyka Small Batch Vodka is produced at Iceland’s first distillery (the Reyka Distillery) located 74km outside of Reykjavik in Borgarnes, Iceland. This location is pretty much removed from industrial pollution. In fact measured CO2 levels in the air at Borgarnes are actually falling rather than increasing.

At the Reyka distillery they collect water from a spring that runs through a lava field. The water is naturally filtered by the lava rock and with that clean water they distill their spirit in one of the few Carter-Head Stills in the world. Each distillation takes about 6 hours and yields 255 preciously small cases. The final vodka contains only natural flavors and extracts. The final spirit is bottled at 40% alcohol by volume.

Note: The addition of minute quantities of special natural ingredients is consistent with what I know of traditional European production methods where each distilled vodka has its own recipe and its own special ingredients. It is these special ingredients used in very small proportions which contribute to the individual character of each Vodka. (By small quantities I really do mean small; typically these extra ingredients are measured in parts per million.)"

It's not one I've heard of, but my sister is slowly sampling every vodka in the known universe haha, so I'll update this thread if/when she tries this.

I was looking through the Amazon Reviews (sorted by Most Recent here but was in bed, otherwise I'd have replied), and noticed Russian Standard Vodka came up a few times. One commenter even said this should be re-named "Rekya", ho ho

A few mentions comparing Reyka to Russian Standard: amazon.co.uk/gp/…H40

One reviewer even compares it to Snow Leopard, which, strangely enough, I did a Deal about two days ago here

Very similar to snow leopard. Quite grainy tasting and great in mixer. Lovely smooth taste

I'd put it up there with Grey Goose for smoothness and ease of drinking. Much better price too. Can't beat that
Just a reminder that the Tesco price runs out on the 28th, if you're stocking up for the Bank Holiday. Not sure if Amazon's price will go up alongside on that date.

Currently £23 from Sainsbury's at the moment, if it's easier to get to a store sainsburys.co.uk/sho…0cl
