Chase Potato Vodka
Chase Potato Vodka tastes much smoother than grain and rye based spirits. Chase retains a thick, buttery taste from the potatoes.
Chase Potato Vodka has been awarded 1st place (double gold medal), in the 2010 San Francisco World Spirits competition from an entry field of 115!
William Chase was a local farmer who grew potatoes when a supermarket rejected a batch he sold them to Kettle Chips who told him they were the best they had ever used so he decided to make his own crisps and Tyrells was born.
He then discovered potatoes could also make amazing vodka and apples the base for great gin. He also now also owns an estate in Provence making great biodynamic wines.
Voted the World’s Best Vodka at the prestigious San Francisco Spirits Competition, Chase Vodka is the world’s finest English potato vodka. http://williamschase.co.uk/pages/our-story
Made on our Herefordshire family farm, we are the first and only UK distillery to offer a super-premium vodka that is made entirely from seed to bottle on one estate.
The resultant spirit is an exquisite quality vodka with true provenance.
- Nose: Light white pepper, hint of freshly sliced potato. Very clean.
- Palate: Creamy turning clean black pepper, waxy oiliness and macadamia nuts.
- Finish: Clean, rounded. Smooth potato finish with mineral notes.
- Recommended Serve: Serve neat and chilled over ice, or enjoy as a Kiss Chase cocktail.
Kiss Chase: 2 parts Chase Vodka, 1 part Chase Elderflower Liqueur, ¼ freshly squeezed lemon, top up with pressed apple juice. Shake all ingredients with ice and fine strain into a highball glass. Garnish with a slice of apple.
Tyrell’s export trips I discovered potato vodka made from just potatoes and could not believe how good it tasted.
Then, learning that gin is made from vodka, (well, a very crude vodka called Neutral Grain Spirit, which is mass produced spirit that can be bought cheap), I thought that if we could make gin from our own home-grown vodka this would be fantastic and we would become the first real single-estate gin.
When creating our gin, I found that our world class potato vodka was a little heavy to hold some of our botanicals and I wanted something light.
We distilled an apple vodka from cider and redistilled that into gin, giving a deliciously natural, fruity taste from the apple tannins in the skin.
To take our spirits to market was not easy. Usually the spirits industry relies on big companies buying their brands into the market, or small craft distilleries buying in cheap spirit to boil in botanicals, so that our biggest handy cap was the laborious process.
Soon I learnt why nobody wants to make gin or vodka from potatoes or cider! We learnt that some of the best sales people were quality wine merchants as they totally understood about terroir and our processes.
