    Lots of vodka brands will harp on about how many times they are filtered for a 'purer' flavour. However, sometimes all that filtering means you strip out ALL the flavour and get very little else.

    Produced at the Borders Distillery, Puffing Billy is the opposite of these vodkas - a malted barley spirit (what would also be known as 'new make spirit' would they put it in cask and wait three years to become whisky) which is then redistilled in a smaller still with that very name, whereby vapours then run through charcoal. So there is some form of filtration, yes, but somewhat minor and a technique that maintains a full texture and keeps on board notes of tropical fruit and that warm malty feel on the finish. It's a cracking vodka to sip neat, particularly on cold nights, and also works nicely in a Martini using off-dry Vermouth.
