REVIVING THE MAGIC OF A 500 YEAR OLD
NOT BITTER JUST TWISTED
The sensuous and intoxicating mysteries of ancient Bohemia are reawakened in Babicka, (ba-bitch-ka) a luxury vodka intensified with Wormwood (Artemisia Absinthium).
Babicka’s were enigmatic maidens of the 16th century who gathered Wormwood and other herbs to create unique potions and tonics, these elixirs were known to possess special properties for love, sensuality and enlightenment.
The Babickas notoriety as practitioners of the black arts was probably due to the visionary properties of the infamous Wormwood plant which had featured in so many of their brews.
Some believe it was witchcraft, all we know is that the spirit of that age is reborn in Babicka
A luxury vodka made from the finest Moravian corn, distilled with a signature blend of Wormwood and other traditional herbs, filtered through coal and rested for 3 months to allow the flavours to combine.
The result is a totally unique Wormwood distilled vodka, this replicates a 500 year old Czech witches brew that promises a vodka experience like no other.
Tasting Notes Babicka has a light creamy floral bouquet with subtle undertones of citrus and Wormwood.
Babicka is viscous, thick and creamy in texture, it has a silky smooth taint to the palate with a subtle finish of Wormwood.
Not Bitter, Just Twisted.
Producing the witches brew
Coming from a long line of Moravian spirit distillers dating back to 1518, our Master Distiller and his predecessors spent years perfecting the centuries-old wormwood recipes of the Czechoslovakian Babičkas, overseeing every step of the 6 step distillation process to ensure the quality and taste of today’s original wormwood Vodka, Babička.
Once harvested, the Moravian corn is fermented to create the Vodka, before being triple distilled. Separately, the signature wormwood is macerated along with other key herbs and spices, including fennel and anise, to make a herb distillate.
The distillate is then distilled twice. The vodka and the herb distillate are then mixed together, distilled again filtered through coal and then rested for 3 months.
After the discovery of a 500 year old distillery in the Czech Republic that produced both absinth and vodka, we wanted to keep the spirit and name of our creation as close to its birthplace as possible.
The name Babička is about paying homage to centuries of craft and legend. Babička, the original wormwood vodka, revives the magic of a 500 year old Czech witches’ brew
Babička (ba-bitch-ka) vodka was inspired by 16th century Czechoslovakian wise old women called “babičkas”. The babičkas freely used wormwood in their potions for its reputation of enhancing sensuality, creativity and love. The babičkas rapidly became renowned for having mystical healing powers and practicing the art of witchcraft.
These recipes created by babičkas represent some of the earliest vodka formulas ever created, a witches’ brew.
