Nero Premium Vodka is produced using British potatoes. It is distilled six times resulting in an extremely smooth, velvety vodka with little to no after burn. Nero can be enjoyed neat or pairs well with any mixer or as part of a cocktail. Nero consistently comes out tops in blind taste tests against some of the bigger more established brands.
Their premium taste is matched by their striking bottle design where every detail has been meticulously checked. The long, elegant silhouette and floating graphic sword makes Nero a beautiful addition to any back bar.
Nero Drinks Company Ltd., a brainchild of the current CEO Nicola Morrissey, is a 100% private owned family company aiming to become the largest private owned vodka brand in the UK. Nicola has invested significant time in researching the market for our product. She has also handpicked several partners to complement her work and ensure that all potential gaps in her knowledge are adequately filled by a trusted, suitably experienced party.
All processes at their award-winning distillery are overseen by an exceptionally skilled distiller with five generations of experience in making potato vodka.
Nero Premium Vodka won a silver medal at 2020 Bartenders Spirits Awards.
Being made from potatoes instead of grains, the distinctive character resembles hints of vanilla with fragrant tones of citrus and almost no alcohol on the nose. The extra levels of sweetness from the potato starch in Nero’s scent set it apart from the heavy ethanol burden commonly present in grain vodkas.
Moving onto the taste, the Nero Premium Vodka feels creamy on the palate with a very soft and clean flavour profile. On the tongue, it is smooth, almost velvety, as there is little to no burn after drinking. The tones are the most prominent when the Nero Premium Vodka is served without ice, water or mixers. For the purest tasting experience, the vodka should be chilled and form tears around the top of the glass.
On the ingredients list, one finds only 100% British potatoes with no added sweeteners or additives. The Nero Premium Vodka is sugar and gluten free which makes it suitable for people who react to glutinous grains in the majority of vodkas on the market. One of the benefits of a potato vodka like Nero Premium, is the fewer calories consumed when combined with the right mixer. This makes a great option for those on a low-carb diet or a workout routine.
Being an easy-to-drink vodka, the Nero Premium Vodka can be drunk alone or mixed. The neutral taste profile pairs well with any flavour, from sweet to savoury and dry to spicy. Nero’s long-lasting aromas of wild garden flowers, some hint of citrus, great minerality and creaminess with a rich finish make it an easily mixable vodka. However, it is recommended to be sipped alone.
Every vodka has its own characteristics, which is largely attributed to the raw materials used to make the spirit and the process used while distilling the spirit. The production process involves peeling, heating and mashing the potatoes before adding yeast for fermentation. The potatoes are then transferred to a custom-made copper pot still, the steam is then used to raise the temperature and help with distillation. Vapours then rise up through the rectification column, resulting in a vodka that has effectively been distilled 6 times.
