The Drink: Quintessentially Vodka

Quintessentially – the world’s leading concierge club for the fabulously rich – is branching out into luxury drinks for the first time. Perhaps sensibly they're starting with vodka (hey, who doesn't enjoy the clear stuff?).

As to be expected for a premium brand, it's being marketed as both 'smooth' and 'clean' (translation: you can drink it neat without your eyes watering), but what makes Quintessentially Vodka stand out in an extremely well catered for field is its subtle sweetness, which can be attributed to the organic wheat and rowanberry extract in the ingredients.

The result of a partnership between Quintessentially and UK distillers G&J Greenall – who of course also make some exceptional gins – Quintessentially Vodka is a welcome addition to the ultra-premium sipping vodka market, though naturally it can also be enjoyed as a classic martini or in a cocktail. The sleek black matte bottle is a plus, too.
