The Rowan berry vodka.

The next recipe is one of my favourite, this is very interesting alcoholic drink that can not be found in any liquor store.

the recipe is based on wild berries and in particular on the rowan berries, the rowan berry is the reaches source of vitamin C and flavour for bitterly sweet vodka.

For this recipe you will need around 3L of odourless rectified spirit at 40% alc/vol that made with help of fractional still(not pot still - too harsh) and 300g of Rowan berries.

first of all you have to find the tree with berries, please note that berries are good for picking from the middle of Autumn. Locate the tree that far from traffic and industrial places.

just pick up some berries and make sure that there left enough for birds.


then bring your berries home and separate all leafs and branches from berries, measure approximately 300g of berries wash in fresh water

Washed berries

collect all berries to a plastic back and put to the freezer and leave overnight, this procedure will make the berries skin soft and cracked that will accelerate the soaking process.

Now take a 3L glass jar and put berries in it

The next and most important step is to fill the rest of the jar's space with a high quality fractioned 40% spirit.

when the jar is filled with spirit - apply the lid and leave the drink at room temperature for at least 3 weeks.

In three weeks the Rowan berry vodka will gain the colour and the taste, as you can see on this picture the jar is not full any longer, just be careful this kind of drink is tend to disappear very fast, in my particular case the 2.5L of drink had gone in just 6 hours even before I had managed to take some pictures of final product. In your case you can leave the spirit and berries together till all vodka is gone and refill your favourite bottle prior to party, this vodka is best at temperature of 15 degrees Celsius, straight from a shot glass.
