Two Birds Christmas Spices & English Vodka 32% 70cl
Founded by engineer and gin lovel Mark Gamble in 2013, Union Distillers is the birthplace of Two Birds, producing a range of gins and vodkas more often than not focussing on unusual flavour profiles through macerating a variety of ingredients.
The Christmas Spices release is pretty much what you would expect - cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and dried fruit are macerated in their barley and sugar beet based vodka for a few days to impart a real mince pie feel. One can't help but compare to the Black Cow Christmas Spirit which does almost exactly the same thing - but whereas the Black Cow version has more pronounced spice notes, here we have much more emphasis on the raisins and sultanas. Indeed, this is closer to a mince pie in terms of flavour profile whereas the Black Cow is more along the line of an actual handmade Christmas pudding. And to be honest, that's no bad thing, as I bloody love both Xmas pud AND mince pies!
