42 Below's manuka honey vodka is made with the purest ingredients. The honey is taken from special beehives placed in New Zealand's manuka tree plantations. Unlike most honeys, manuka is darker and more savoury with oaky flavours and a hint of caramel.
To make the premium vodka, the raw manuka honey is vapourised by applying direct heat, driving off steam, that condenses into a rich essence. 42 Below Vodka is then infused with the honey essence.
The complex flavours are easily absorbed and create a unique spirit that is drinkable either over ice or as part of a premium cocktail like 'honey on the rocks' or 'manuka mule'.
42 Below Vodkas have already won a series of awards and are capturing the imagination of leading bartenders, mixologists and sommeliers around the world. In December 2003, 42 Below Vodka was judged first equal in a professional blind tasting of 18 of the world's best vodkas for The Independent Newspaper and scored 90-95/100 with Wine Enthusiast Magazine, USA.
Pure wheat grain with no genetic modification and no genetic engineering, 4 distillations, 35 filtrations and volcanic spring water welled from thousands of feet underground make 42 Below vodkas as pure as you can get.
42 Below pure vodka blends the smoothness of Polish vodkas with the cleanness of Scandinavian vodkas to achieve a smooth, full-bodied spirit with generous grain flavours and a nice peppery finish.
