THE SINGLE LIFE
Desiree Whitaker and her team at Cardrona Distillery have created a unique single malt vodka, and it’s fast becoming a favourite. Dubbed “The Reid:, at 44% abv and diamond-bright, it’s made using malted barley, pure Cardrona alpine water, distillers yeast and a whole heap of skill. Fermented for 72 hours, then distilled through their 7.5-metre German column still, the result is a pure, mineral-driven spirit enclosed in the faintest cloak of smoke. Glorious stuff.
