Karven Starka Vodka Time to Up the Home Bar Ante

[26/04/17] 

There’s little doubt that we’re living in the age of the craft spirit, which is a good thing for lads that like a good drink, but it also means you shall we judged on what you present on your home bar, whether it’s a sleek copper lined number crested with ornate decanters, or just a dusty corner where bottles tend to congregate. The reality is good craft spirits not only make cocktails more interesting, but they also make great ice breakers and conversation starters, which can always be nice if the night’s waning.

Karven Starka Vodka is no ordinary vodka. Crafted in New Zealand with natural artesian water (the family-owned distillery also does an award-winning gin and a very unique vermouth) this savvy drop is inspired by Eastern Europe’s 500-year-old tradition of creating starka spirit, a dry vodka made from distilled rye that’s often buried in the ground the day a baby boy is born and unearthed when he marries. Karven’s starka vodka is rested in American oak barrels for 6-8 weeks and infused with local manuka honey and insightful local botanicals, including native kawakawa. The result is an alluring and intriguing spirit with the deep golden hue of a sunburst Stratocaster, with toasted vanilla and honey notes on the palate, followed by a touch of spice that’s guaranteed to get tongues waggling.

Dare to drink different.
