Vestal signs with Halewood to “revive” vodka

Vestal Vodka new bottle

Vestal Vodka has secured a deal with Halewood, which is celebrated by a new bottle design and the release of Vestal’s 2015 vintage.

Halewood will take a 48% share in the Vestal business for an undisclosed sum. Both family-owned drinks firms are determined to take advantage of what they see as the coming “revival” of vodka.

Vestal, set up in 2011 by William Borrell, has a family farm in the Kaszubia region of Poland and only sources traditional potato varieties for its vodkas.

The deal is being marked by a new bottle for Vestal and the release of its 2015 vintage, which is thought to have the longest known “rest” period for any vodka – four years.

William describes the resultant vodka as “creamy and buttery, with earthy spices and a delicate fruit aroma”. It has a “soft and pleasant finish, complete with warming nutmeg and white pepper notes”.

Made from recycled glass, the new bottle design is a triangular shape and celebrates the brand’s Polish heritage.
