Chilgrove Vodka

Chilgrove Vodka



Seriously Smooth Vodka

The very first of its kind, this seriously smooth English Vodka is distilled using crystal clear natural mineral water, filtered through the chalky South Downs which surround Chilgrove, together with a neutral spirit distilled from grapes. It is this unique relationship which gives Chilgrove Vodka its silky-smooth and elegant character.

The idea behind Chilgrove Vodka was conceived in the Sussex hamlet of Chilgrove by founders Christopher and Celia Beaumont-Hutchings. This award-winning new, super-premium, small batch vodka is distilled using traditional methods under the watchful eye of our eighth generation Master Distiller.
