Karven Starka Vodka



Karven Starka Vodka

700ml 38% ABV

Karven's Starka barrel aged vodka is a combination of Eastern European tradition with contemporary New Zealand style.

A Starka Vodka is a Polish tradition where when a child is born, a barrel is filled with vodka, some botanicals and sealed with bee's wax. The barrel is then buried only to be dug up and drunk when that child gets married.

Karven's twist on the tradition sees them taking their elegant grain vodka which is infused with local botanicals, including native Kawakawa, and manuka honey and then age rested in small American oak barrels for 6 to 8 weeks.

The resulting flavoured vodka is a interesting spirit that makes an amazing mule with ginger beer.

Tasting Notes: Deep amber in colour, subtle cream and toasted vanilla and honey on the nose. Old port and young brandy with manuka honey on the palate. A complex finish of mixed spice.
