Unleash the Mountain Strength: A Deep Dive into Gorilla Spirits Blackback Vodka

Hailing from the heart of Hampshire, Gorilla Spirits Blackback Mountain Strength Vodka isn't your average spirit. This IWSC Gold Medal winner boasts a unique character, crafted with meticulous attention to detail. Here at The General Wine Company, we're diving deep into this award-winning vodka, exploring its flavour profile, ideal serving suggestions, and why it deserves a place on your top shelf.

A Celebration of British Ingredients:

Blackback takes pride in its British roots. Distilled from 100% British wheat, the vodka undergoes a meticulous process to achieve its exceptional smoothness.  The wheat base provides a clean, neutral foundation, allowing the subtle nuances of the distillation to shine through.

The Pot Still Magic:

What truly sets Blackback apart is its pot still finish. This traditional method allows for a slower, more gentle interaction between the alcohol vapours and the copper pot. This process helps to remove impurities while infusing the spirit with a subtle warmth and depth of character often missing in mass-produced vodkas.

Tasting Profile: A Journey for the Palate

Nose:  Blackback presents a clean and inviting nose.  There's no harsh alcohol burn, just a hint of gentle sweetness that hints at the underlying wheat character.  Subtle whispers of spice may also emerge, particularly for those accustomed to exploring vodkas with a bit more complexity.

Palate:  The first sip is a revelation.  Blackback's creamy texture immediately coats the tongue, offering a luxurious mouthfeel.  The initial sweetness detected on the nose translates into a subtle warmth on the palate, without any cloying sensation.  As the vodka rolls across the tongue, hints of spice emerge, perhaps a touch of white pepper or ginger.  These fleeting notes add intrigue without overpowering the clean, wheaty core.  The finish is long and delicate, leaving a pleasant warmth that lingers without any bitterness.

Serving Suggestions: A Versatile Spirit for Every Occasion

Blackback's smooth character and subtle complexity make it a perfect vodka for a variety of drinking experiences.

  • Neat or on the Rocks:  For true vodka aficionados, Blackback is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks.  This allows the spirit's full flavour profile to be appreciated.  A splash of chilled water can help open up the aromas further, revealing the intricacies of the pot still finish.
  • Classic Cocktails:  Blackback elevates classic vodka cocktails.  Its smooth texture and lack of harshness make it ideal for a perfectly balanced martini, a refreshing Moscow Mule, or a crisp Cosmopolitan.  The subtle spice notes can also add an interesting twist to a Bloody Mary.
  • Modern Mixology Explorations:  Blackback's clean character provides an excellent base for adventurous cocktail creations.  Pair it with fresh seasonal fruits, herbal liqueurs, or light floral infusions to craft unique and exciting drinks.
