OUR VODKA

OUR VODKA

Cronk Y Voddy is a spirit aiming to capture the very essence of the Isle of Man Road Racing tradition. We use the finest grain spirit for Cronk Y Voddy, blended with 100% Manx vodka made from wash provided by our friends at the Hooded Ram Brewery (link). It’s distilled until it’s ultra pure, clean, and delicious, and then the finest Manx water is added to hit the magic ABV of 37 ¾ % !

HEAD DISTILLER

Ian Warborn-Jones

With a degree in wine production from Plumpton College, Ian is a true wine and spirits enthusiast. After being put forward as an Associate Judge – and later being awarded Associate Judge of The Year – at the International Wine and Spirits Competition, Ian graduated to become a full judge before spending several years in the London wine trade.

As Seven Kingdoms’ Head Distiller, Ian is in charge of conceiving of, and creating, our range of craft spirits.

TT RACE

A Potted History

THE CRONK Y VODDY STRAIGHT

The Cronk Y Voddy Straight rises up from Glen Helen out into the open countryside, this 180mph stretch of road is bookended by two very technical and tricky sections of the race, and that’s what we’re trying to encapsulate with this spirit. Open air, speed and sheer enjoyment.

The races have been going for over 100 years, and are as much a part of the island story as anything. The Loaghtan was reintroduced to our fields from Norway, a couple of hundred years after the Leif’s countrymen arrived!

The sword in cronk y voddy is a sign of strength and protection, Viking in design to showcase our proud Viking heritage

LEIF

Our Biking Viking, “Leif”, brings together a lot of elements of the Isle of Man:

  • The four horns of the Loaghtan sheep
  • Our Viking heritage
  • The TT Races

and of course…

SEVEN KINGDOM DISTILLERY

Our distillery is named Seven Kingdom as these are all visible from the top of Snaefell mountain on the Island: England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Heaven, The Sea, and Mann. Since opening the doors officially in August 2017, we have successfully launched 2 gins – Douglas Dry Gin, and Batch 1, and are bout the launch Cronk Y Voddy Vodka – The Spirit of the Races.

DOUGLAS DRY GIN

Sensational Gin

Douglas Dry Gin was made to be a supremely balanced, smooth and delicate spirit. Good enough to drink neat, the gin makes a damn fine Martini (very little Noilly Prat and 3 olives please), and pairs extremely well with all tonics. Our recommended serve is with Roots Queen Bee tonic, grapefruit and thyme. Distribution of the gin continues apace, with London sales growing steadily alongside local. We are proud to be stocked at Chez Bruce in Wandsworth, one of the icons of the London restaurant scene.

DISTILLERY TOURS

Great Vodka

Tours of the distillery can be arranged via appointment through email or phone. The tour usually takes around half an hour and can include a tasting of up to 6 gins and canapes if you so desire. We generally conduct the tours just prior to evening service in the restaurant, so they act as the perfect aperitif to our excellent food!

What better way to spend an afternoon and evening.

RESTAURANT

Fantastic Dining

Seven Kingdom Distillery is home to one of the island’s finest restaurants. Our emphasis is on good classic cooking but incorporating new ideas and interesting ingredients (our spirits!).

The dining experience offers a viewing gallery into the distillery proper and if you come in for lunch, it is highly likely you will get to see the distillery team hard at work producing the world-beating spirits that our customers love to taste on-site.
