A scotch whisky distiller, when asked recently if he made any blends, was gloriously sniffy and dismissive of blended whisky. It would have been interesting to see and hear what he would have made of the Johnnie Walker Directors Blends, which I got to taste last Thursday (November 28) in London.
The bottles bear “eco-friendly and safe” certifications, which Nemiroff claims, are recognised in 35 countries, including the EU.
According to the Ukrainian distiller, Distinct is the first Ukrainian vodka to be flavoured with aloe.
The 70cl vodka has already launched in the Ukraine, while 50cl bottles will arrive in the market this autumn.
The distiller has described the vodka as crystal clear, light and subtle in aroma, with a mild taste.
The bottle was designed in collaboration with design agency Claessens International.
