Is this the world’s vodka?
Made entirely from the milk of grass grazed cows, Black Cow Vodka has a deliciously smooth creamy character. The unusual recipe is the invention of West Dorset dairy farmer Jason Barber, who was looking to find new ways to use the produce from his 250-strong Dorset dairy herd. Inspired by the traditional practices of a nomadic Siberian tribe who have been making alcohol from yak milk for centuries, he wanted to see if he could use the whey, left over after the curds had been used for making cheese, to create something really special.
Jason takes the whey and ferments it using special yeast which converts the milk sugar to alcohol. The ‘milk beer’ is then distilled and treated to their secret blending process. The resulting vodka is triple filtered and finished before being hand bottled.
