Why you should buy it:
“Cleveland Bay is made up of carefully sourced British ingredients, distilled in the world’s smallest commercial copper pot stills installed with a bespoke reflux column, instead of disposable equipment,” James Luwagga creator of Cleveland Bay Vodka said. “This allows for first time distillation, ending in a carbon filter finish for unrivalled smoothness and taste.”
