PURE GOLD / AU VODKA SHINES BRIGHTLY AS NEWEST ADDITION TO THE BOUTIQUE BRANDS FAMILY
Inspired by gold, Au Vodka incorporates the periodic table where gold is a chemical element with the symbol Au and atomic number 79. We combine our British heritage and luxury ingredients together to create truly exceptional ultra-premium vodka. Recognised instantly by our signature gold bottle, Au Vodka is for those who choose individuality over common following. Au’s signature smooth taste and distinct flavouring is perfect on the rocks or in a martini, breathing character to any cocktail.
FINEST BRITISH INGREDIENTS
Each batch of Au Vodka begins with the finest British ingredients from the heart of the English countryside. Our award-winning recipe is a celebration of local produce that uses only the highest grade of wheat and pristine spring water from the Hertfordshire hills. These raw ingredients are then distilled and gold-filtered to produce our artisanal vodka.
FIVE TIMES DISTILLED
The Au Vodka Ultra-Premium distillation process ensures the best possible flavour. While all vodka is distilled, Au Vodka is distilled five times. After years of research and tasting, we found that a five-times distillation process produced vodka with exceptional character. The final distillation lends Au Vodka its award-winning smoothness, delivering a unique and distinctive flavour with an exceptionally bold finish.
Gold, symbolising power and perfection, represents the exceptional purity of our unique vodka. This formidable element is a key component of our craft filtration process. Our Vodka is filtered using traditional charcoal, however, the formula then flows at high pressure through a filter chamber containing gold to remove further carbon based impurities that could otherwise detract from Au’s unparalleled taste. Gold has mineral properties that give our vodka a smooth and velvety finish. Our method is one of the only gold filtration processes in the world.
THE BOTTLE / SIGNATURE SILHOUETTE
Au’s stunning V-shaped gold bottle is created using the finest components that pass the hands of the world’s most culturally rich countries. Our mission was to create a bottle that truly reflected the excellence of our vodka and with the result being our show stopping gold plated glass bottle – we have certainly achieved our goal. The bottles’ finishing touches are made in Italy, a country that is celebrated for its character and beauty, making Au the pinnacle of glasswork and truly a piece of art.
We didn’t use a traditional paper label or methods of screen-printing like most bottles in the spirit industry; instead we felt that a luxury gold metal label applied to each bottle would be more suiting. Every label is hand crafted, hand cut and hand applied. We believe that beauty is in the detail and Au celebrates its uniqueness.
