Vodka 1698 was recently awarded a gold medal at the Spirits Business Awards 2021 and 91/100 by the Independent Drinks Specialists - a collective of leading drinks industry professionals.
It’s an impeccably smooth vodka with a deep creamy texture and gentle sweetness. It has subtle notes of green apple, lemon and a hot peppery finish and is made from 100% grain.
Why is it called Vodka 1689?
The 1698 is due to the fact Peter the Great, then Tsar of Russia came to Deptford in 1698 on his tour of Western Europe while studying shipbuilding at the royal dockyard.
The diarist John Evelyn was kind enough to open up one of his houses - Sayes Court, to Peter but Peter was a bit of a wrong'un and trashed it. The estate steward reported that Peter's party, which was full of 'right nasty' people, had wrecked the house and garden. Very rock ‘n’ roll!
