Fantastic news! Our Misty Isle Vodka has just received its third GOLD award of 2021 and achieved the IWSC Vodka Trophy!
We could not be more thrilled that Misty Isle Vodka has just received an Outstanding Gold Award in this year’s International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC) after receiving a total score of 98 points.
IWSC stated “Misty Isle Vodka is a great example of a wheat vodka with ample depth, balance and character. On the nose white fruit, lemon and vanilla. The palate is smooth and refined, with grainy sweetness fruit flavours of plum and elderflower. The finish is beautifully balanced”.
IWSC Vodka Trophy
Additionally, we are also delighted that Misty Isle Vodka has been awarded the Award Vodka Trophy 2021 at the IWSC competition. IWSC trophies are awarded across a range of categories with the distillers that are awarded gold medals then put forward to be considered for the overall trophy in their category.
We are thrilled with the results!
MISTY ISLE VODKA
We released Misty Isle vodka in 2018 and it was the first vodka to be distilled on the Isle of Skye. We traditionally triple distil our vodka in small batches and due to this process distillation takes three days to complete. Hand crafted using the crystal clear waters from Skye, our vodka is a crisp, clean and smooth spirit at 40% ABV.
There is much debate surrounding the origins of vodka, but we do know that it was present during the 14th century in Russia. The word ‘vodka’ is said to derive from ‘voda’ which means water in Russian and the spirit has always been a favoured choice throughout Eastern Europe.
Soon after the Second World War, vodka consumption grew rapidly in the United States during the cocktail era and then continued to spread in popularity throughout Western Europe. Today, vodka is a highly regarded spirit and ‘The UK Gin and Vodka Association’ have stated that vodka has overtaken whisky as the biggest-selling spirit in the UK.
Fancy a Cocktail? Try Misty Isle Appletini.
40ml Misty Isle Vodka
40ml Cloudy Apple Juice
10ml Lemon Juice
10ml Maple Syrup
Method: Pour the vodka into a Martini style glass and fill with ice. Add the cloudy apple juice, lemon juice and maple syrup into a cocktail shaker and shake until thoroughly mixed. Pour into the glass alongside the vodka and ice. Garnish with lemon peel.
Light and refreshing, our vodka is also great when sipped over ice or enjoyed with a premium mixer.
