At The Snug we pride ourselves in using only the best ingredients in our cocktails. Chase Vodka is an English award-wining potato vodka from Herefordshire, created by William Chase, the owner of Tyrell Crisps.
From William’s idea to make vodka in 2004 it took him until April fool’s day in 2008 to harvest the first of his potatoes, making the first batch of vodka in June 2008. It was hard work but in the end he found a family owned company to build the 70ft rectification column, the tallest of its kind in the world, much needed for the distillation process.
At this point he was astonished at how little volume they produced. 16 tonnes of potatoes returned only 1000 litres of alcohol but after tasting the first drop he knew he was on to something special and so as he was so proud of what he had created he decided to call it Chase Vodka.
At The Snug we are also very proud to serve this English Vodka and you can find it in cocktails such as the Marmalade Fizz, the Jewel in the Crown and the classic Vodka Martini.
