Virtuous Rye received 99 out of 100 points at the IWSC 2023 and won the Spirit Gold Outstanding 2023 award and Vodka Trophy 2023.
The range is made using organic rye and other natural ingredients through a continuous distillation process. While many distillers cut away some of the head and some of the tail and use the so-called ‘heart’ of the distillate for the final product, Virtuous uses only the very core of the heart, the ‘heart of the heart’.
The flavoured vodkas are produced using a natural maceration process, which involves steeping real organic fruits and botanicals in the spirit to release their true flavours. The unfiltered spirits also retain the natural colours provided by the raw ingredients, bucking an industry trend for clear flavoured vodkas.
The Virtuous collection is also gluten free, vegan friendly and contains no added sugar or artificial ingredients.
Virtuous Spirits was founded by Swedish chef and foodie Claes Stenmark in 2013.
Samantha Burke, Managing Director of Love Drinks, commented: “We’ve long respected Claes and his Virtuous brand so it’s a huge honour to take on the distribution in the UK. They are everything we look for in partners and thanks to his flavour-first passion, the Virtuous quintet is as delicious as it is stunning.”
