The base of Grape Skin Vodka is made by distilling all the parts of the wine-making process that are normally discarded: the skins, stems, the seeds… otherwise known as the pomace. This is typically sold on or in most cases, destroyed. In a bid to combat this needless waste, Discarded has distilled this pomace into the base of our Grape Skin Vodka.
The second discarded ingredient in the Grape Skin Vodka is equally unique. One of the waste products created by dealcoholizing wine is what we call ‘wine alcohol’, which actually retains a lot of the flavour of the original grape. We instead wanted to celebrate the exquisite essence of this Chardonnay ‘wine alcohol’ by blending it into our Discarded Grape Skin Vodka – and thereby creating something totally new, innovative, sustainable, and utterly delicious.
Discarded Grape Skin Vodka is a zero waste, grape skin-based vodka made from grape skins leftover from wine making. We distill them then combine them with the Chardonnay wine alcohol from the wine de-alcoholisation process, giving you a luscious, fruit-forward vodka
The unique distilling process of this zero-waste vodka provides a crisp aroma of fresh green apple, which then move deeper into almond croissant notes, and a bright lychee lift. A luscious mouthfeel, with fruit-forward notes of Williams pear, guava and starfruit, complete with a beautiful finish of pink peppercorns.
Serve in a Grape Skin Spritz, or any vodka cocktail of your choosing for a simple delicious low-waste swap!read more
