Maverick to distribute Vestal vodka

12 May, 2014

Vestal, the vodka made from small relatively unprocessed potatoes from single regions and bottled by vintage, is to be distributed in the UK by Maverick Drinks.

Vestal creator William Borrell said: “Commercial vodkas are all the same. Multi-distilled, then filtered and then filtered again, it’s left tasteless. We take tiny new potatoes when they’re smaller than the Jersey Royal, and we keep in the impurities, unlike the commercial vodkas, as they’re the flavour. At the end we have a spirit that has as much identity as a whisky, brandy or cognac.”

"Maverick Drinks has a wide portfolio of handcrafted spirits and shares many of the same values as we do at Vestal. Their refreshing approach to brand development is creating quite the stir in the drinks industry and they’re the kind of people we love to work with.”

Maverick Drinks head of brand development Michael Vachon said: "Vestal has challenged the dominant players in the vodka market and produced one of the most flavourful and exceptional spirits available. We’re excited to bring them on board and feel that they perfectly compliment our existing portfolio of craft spirits."
