This limited-edition Islay Cask Vodka has been made from the "World's Best" Chase Original potato vodka which has been slightly aged in Laphroaig casks - which previously held the famous single malt - for up to eight months. On the nose, there are hints of smoky bacon along with vegetal and faint pine notes. The palate has a faint taste of liquorice which leads to a dry, peppery but oaky finish. One of only 500 bottles.

Chase is a family owned, single estate distillery, creating fine spirits since 2008 from the produce grown on their own farm in rural Herefordshire. The original Chase Vodka is the world's first super premium potato vodka from the only UK distillery to offer English vodka that is made entirely from seed to bottle, giving a quality vodka with provenance.

Potatoes and apples, harvested from the fields and orchards surrounding the farm are mashed up for fermentation. Apples are sweet enough to ferment naturally, but a brewer's yeast is added to the potato mash. After about a week, this becomes a low alcohol wine.

Using a bespoke, handcrafted copper batch pot, and only traditional artisan methods that a distiller of over 100 years ago would recognise, the low alcohol wine from the fermentation stage is distilled four times and then twice more in the rectification column. The column is the tallest of its kind in the world, at 70ft it rises through the roof of the barn at Chase - truly a spectacular sight!

At this point, the spirit has reached the dizzying heights of 96% abv. After distillation, the raw spirit is tempered with water drawn from a source at the heart of the farm. Once it's reached a much more drinkable 40% abv, the vodka is hand bottled and sealed it with a handmade cork. The whole process, from farm to bottle, takes up to two weeks.

Chase Gin is made from the distillery's own vodka. Juniper buds and berries are infused to ensure that they distil the driest gin possible, followed by 10 fine botanicals including; cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, almond, coriander, cardamom, cloves, liquorice and lemon.

Even Chase’s fruit liqueurs are made using their own vodka, for a genuine luxurious quality. The craftsmen and women at Chase capture the true, rich flavours of beautifully ripened and carefully selected varieties of fresh fruit to achieve the best delicious taste, without using any artificial ingredients or heat methods.
