Babička Vodka

babicka Babička VodkaVodka may be known as the purest of spirits, but Babička sounds like it could turn angels into demons!  Babička is inspired by an ancient Czech recipe, brewed by peasant grandmothers with a reputation for witchcraft.  This is no doubt down to the hypnotic blend of vodka distilled with wormwood, providing a spirit which isn’t too far off absinthe – albeit with a palatable 40% abv.  The flavour is far easier going too, with the creamy texture providing subtle notes of vanilla, caramel, aniseed and citrus.  Around £25 from www.thedrinkshop.com
