If you're a vodka fan, but you're looking a bit different from the usual mass produced vodkas, then you should try Berliner Brandstifter Vodka. This producer from Berlin, Germany, makes their spirits in small batches from quality ingredients which are sourced from the local Berlin area. Unlike other vodkas, Berliner Brandstifter is distilled five times and filtered seven times for ultimate smoothness, creating a vodka which is great to sip neat or to mix into long drinks.
Berliner Brandstifter produce their vodka in small batches
The unusual thing about Berliner Brandstifter is that they make their vodka in small batches of just 999 bottles per year. This allows them to concentrate on creating a unique product of the highest quality, using the local Berlin ingredients which are available. Berlin has a moderate climate, but it gets hot in summer and snowy in winter, so it is not ideal for the cultivation of fruits and vegetables. That means that Berliner Brandstifter have to be selective about which plants they grow on their farm in Speisegut, Berlin.
On the Berlin farm you'll find plants like mallow flowers, elderflower, and sweet woodruff, which are used to give Berliner Brandstifter's vodka a unique flavour profile. Using these plants which grow locally, the vodka is given a distinctively Berlin flavour.
Berliner Brandstifter's production process
The Berlin flavour of the vodka is achieved with a careful production process, which includes several weeks of resting for each batch in a 700 litre stainless steel cask in the moderate Berlin weather. This allows the flavours to mix and to mellow, for a smooth and tasty vodka at the end. Once it has rested, the spirit is bottled and each bottle is numbered by hand, to show the limited nature of the batches.
If you're looking for a Berlin-inspired drink, what should you try? Well, see if you can get your hands on a bottle of Club Mate, a caffeinated soft drink which is Berlin's unofficial beverage of choice. Mixing Club Mate with vodka is a favourite of the locals which you'll see in every bar and club in Berlin.
