Devon Cove Produce reveals "Devon's first potato vodka"
A potato producer claims it has created Devon’s first potato vodka.
Cove Vodka, which is produced using King Edward potatoes, is described as being “luxuriously smooth”.
The potatoes are grown in rich soil on Devon Cove Produce founder Leanne Carr’s family farm. The Lidstone family have been growing potatoes in the Atlantic sea air overlooking Hope Cove in South Devon for over 50 years.
Carr said: “After many discussions around the dinner table about the different ways you can cook and enjoy potatoes we decided to take things a step further and make potato vodka.
“Using the finest Devon potatoes and Devon spring water, combined with small batch traditional copper pot distillation, we have created a distinctly smooth and delicious vodka which captures the essence of Devon.”
The “pure and clean” vodka is said to be delicious to drink on its own, with a mixer or as the base spirit in a cocktail. Cove Vodka’s ‘perfect serve’ is poured over ice, with chilled soda water and a squeeze of fresh lime. It is also low in calories, according to the company, and no sugar is added.
In addition, Devon Cove Produce has launched Cove Damson Liqueur, a “divinely smooth and fruity” creation of ripe West Country damsons infused with Cove Vodka.
Cove Vodka is available in three sizes: 5cl at £5.95, 20cl at £18 and 70cl at £39.50.
Cove Damson is available in two sizes: 20cl at £18 and 50cl at £33.
