“... smooth and harmonious, with seductive Viognier-like scents and a slowly amplifying flavour” Andrew Jefford, Wine and Spirits writer, Financial Times.

"Wokka is ‘the’ most interesting spirit for cocktails right now" Chi Fat Man, Bar Manager, The Nordic Light Hotel, Sweden.

Editorial Note:

WOKKA SAKi 40% ABV is a blend of micro distilled British grain vodka, fine Japanese sake (80:20), and a subtle essence of Asian fruit.

The Blend

A rare process of three-step micro distillation in a single, small 400 litre stainless steel pot still known as 'Tom Thumb', ensures the wheat grain vodka in WOKKA SAKi is exceptionally smooth. Fine imported Japanese honjozo-shu sake is then carefully blended with the vodka and a subtle fusion of Asian fruit is added that harnesses the character of WOKKA SAKi and gives it its distinctive flavour. This labour intensive process of single batch distillation and manual blending is reserved for only the finest and most expensive spirits. Production takes place at the 200 year old Thames Distillery in London under the expertise of master distiller, Charles Maxwell.
