Potato Vodka 40 % vol
During the first half of the 19th century, potato schnapps was a pioneering product in the industrial mass production of spirits. The end of the spirit monopoly on cap distilleries in 2013 has since led to the closure of almost all potato distilleries.
What Peter Day does in his distillery on the Lower Rhine is the exact opposite of mass production. His NICOLA 044 is a single-variety brandy. Starchy mash from local Nicola potatoes is processed directly here in a 150-liter still, fermented and then double distilled. The result is a highly aromatic distillate, with floral and nutty notes, along with hints of apricot and dried fruit.
