Hailing from a recipe handed down from a band of 16th-century Czech peasant grandmothers, with a bit of a reputation for witchcraft, comes the wormwood based Babicka (pronounced Ba-bitch-ka).
The vodka uses 100% Moravian corn as its single grain and wormwood harvested from the fields of Prostejov is then hung to dry naturally. Its water is derived from the natural spring mountain range near Hana and deep 10,000-year-old springs near the city of Prostejov. A six-step distillation process is followed to draw out impurities. Babicka (rrp £29.99) was originally a witches brew, used as a love potion and taken to help the lovelorn see the true love of their dreams.
