VDKA 6100 is a passion – a passion we love sharing with fellow vodka purists.
We make VDKA 6100 in Reporoa, near Lake Taupo on the North Island of New Zealand, using fresh seasonal whey that we source from the Bay of Plenty Region.
Our whey is fermented using a rare strain of yeast that we imported from Ireland over 30 years ago and have been hand cultivating in Reporoa ever since.
The purity of the ingredients means we only need to distil VDKA 6100 a few times; ensuring that the character is retained. We filter through carbon ‘rockets’ and then blend with extraordinary, locally-sourced natural New Zealand spring water.
The result is a truly distinctive, elegant, luxurious vodka.
VDKA 6100 is gluten-free, sugar-free, lactose-free, and free from chemical additives. It has been tested against the best, and it’s one of the purest vodkas on earth.
None of this should come as a surprise because New Zealand is one of the purest places on earth. Miles and miles from anywhere, out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, it is truly a land that pollution (and attitude) has yet to discover.
It’s a quiet part of the world, New Zealand. Truth be told we’d rather keep it that way; but this vodka is too good to keep to ourselves.
Vodka is often described as a colorless, odorless, and flavorless alcohol…. not VDKA 6100. The unconventional composition makes our vodka smooth in the mouth with a taste that hints at citrus and white pepper. VDKA 6100 also has extremely low levels of methanol (the nasty compound that makes bad vodkas ‘burn’ your throat) creating
Very gentle notes of simple syrup, fresh cream, and a touch of lemongrass. This is vodka lite, with all the connotations that entails. For those looking for a truly neutral base spirit that can blend in with whatever mixers you throw at it, well, here it is. B+ Drinkhacker.comChristopher Null
