This evocative small batch Organic Botanical Vodka offers you an experience like no other. An expertly crafted intricate blend of five hand-foraged organic British seaweeds creates stunning undercurrents of Umami flavour.
At Shanty Spirit they take each individual botanical and precision vacuum-distil them in an organic grain spirit to extract the freshest flavours from the ingredients. Each of their seaweeds are sustainably hand foraged from around the British coastline. After much testing and comparing, this was hands down a far superior method to traditional copper pot distillation when extracting the delicate notes.
These remarkable essences are then blended by hand and added into the remaining grain spirit. Finally, they cut their botanical vodka down to 40% ABV using the purest water, re-mineralised with a pinch of Dorset sea salt.
The bottle is reminiscent of a ship’s decanter; squat and sturdy, because no-one would want to knock over a bottle of Shanty! It has beautiful seductive curves and a punt at its base that suggests the seabed or a wave.
The artwork on the bottle was created by a local Dorset artist, Emma Brownjohn. This complex image wraps around from the back of the bottle so that when viewed from the front, the image is magnified and distorted as if being underwater. The bottle is designed to be explored from all angles: and in the centre of the image, we find the Spirit of the Sea.
It’s a bottle not to be thrown away, but to be cherished. To make sure that it retains its good looks after repeated uses, the artwork is fired in a kiln and therefore becomes a part of the bottle itself.
Also available in 70cl & 20cl.
