Devon Cove Vodka
Made from potatoes grown on their farm, Devon Cove Vodka and their on-trend liqueurs have your Pornstar Martini and Espresso cocktails covered.
When Muddy sees a potato, it makes us fancy a bag of chips. But when Leanne Carr saw a potato, or rather acres of them growing on her family farm, she envisaged something far more ambitious: Devon Cove Vodka.
Two years on from their launch in 2019, and Leanne’s dream is a reality, and the business she runs with husband Ben is booming.
How Devon Cove Vodka is made is wonderfully bucolic. The spuds are planted in fields overlooking Hope Cove, they grow in the fresh Atlantic air, and when ready, they’re harvested, cooked and fermented, then distilled in a copper pot distillery and mixed with Devon Spring Water for a traditional, smooth finish.
Espresso Martini fanciers will be pleased to know they now make a Coffee Liqueur, and anyone nostalgic for Kir Royale can give theirs a fruity spin with DC’s Damson Liqueur. Or do it the easy-peasy way and go for a Cocktail Kit. Moscow Mule, Pornstar Martini, Black Russian – all the classic vodka tipples are here. The packaging is cool too, with a cute potato flower print on the inside of the lid.
Interestingly, much of the vodka on the market is grain-based but this being from spuds makes it gluten-free. The carbs in the potatoes don’t translate so it’s sugar-free and as low-cal as booze can be. It’s also vegan. (Every day’s a school day – I’ll be testing you later).
Leanne and Ben celebrated Devon Cove Vodka’s second birthday with the launch of their Cove Rum, and The Sunday Telegraph‘s Suzy Atkins immediately gave it the thumbs-up. “Warming layers of sultanas, orange peel and vanilla, and a rounded mellow and slightly buttery texture.”
Not bad a for a two-year old, eh?
