Rare Velvety Smoothness
NO ADDITIVES, PRESERVATIVES, SUGARS OR SOFTENERS.
Gentle, charcoal phenolic with a pale lemon zest, fine wheat hull and straw aroma.
With the refinement and vitality of a spring-fed river, the structure surges velvety and smooth around the tongue, carrying with it the fine-grained unctuous alcohol that rolls along in mid stream. Like the rainbow from the spray over rapids, hints of pepper spice and lemon hang over the palate leaving a warm and tingly mouth feel. With no fewer than seven distillations, this vodka has not even a hint of roughness, just a unique quality of polish, purity and sinuous grace.
THE ENDANGERED BLUE DUCK
Our vodka is inspired by the very rare & endangered blue duck (Hymenolaimus malacorhynchos) . We’re dedicated to the preservation of the blue duck for future generations so with every bottle sold we donate to help protect wildlife and wild places.
RARE HERITAGE - PURE NEW ZEALAND
With 65 million years of geographic isolation no country can match the promise of natural and unmatched purity of Aotearoa. Blue Duck Rare Vodka is proudly New Zealand designed & crafted.
ARTISAN CRAFTED - BATCH DISTILLED
Our Master distiller Michael Deinlein can trace his distilling heritage to Oberammergau, Germany where his family made herbal liqueurs in the 1930’s. He masterfully handcrafts each bach in a Arnold-Holstein copper reflux pot still imported from Germany.
HAND PAINTED BY NZ ARTIST
The elegant bottle is an expression of New Zealand artistry with a hand-painted blue duck by renowned artist Andrew Barnes-Graham. It’s a elegant vessel that luminates with light & artisanal depth, one can see ‘Whio Whio’ etched down the side, the whistling mating call of the male & Maori name for the blue duck.
