    Christalnaya is the creation of Greenall’s Master Distiller, Joanne Simcock and is based upon the vodka ‘purity laws’ developed in 1894 by Dmitri Mendeleev for Russian Tsar, Alexander III. The appropriately Russian sounding name was inspired by Crystals (Cristal) and purity (Naya). Read more

    Review and Tasting

    Sampled on 01/02/2011

    Appearance

    Crystal clear.

    Aroma

    Almost neutral nose gives hints of grain over wet flint.

    Taste

    Clean palate is dry but with a smooth silky mouth feel. Slight aniseed wheat flavour with the merest tingle of black pepper.

    Aftertaste

    Clean finish is pleasantly warming with dying aniseed wheat notes. I don’t know what the ‘secret botanical’ is but it does make a wonderfully silky vodka.
