If you’re after a smooth, clean, and crisp drink with a fully sustainable ethos, this new vodka is for you.
Dutch Barn Orchard Vodka is made at Ellers Farm Distillery and is certified carbon neutral since day one! Dutch Barn’s ethos is simple: to make the best vodka in the world by being the best vodka for the world.
Dutch Barn is made like no other vodka in the world by Master Distiller Jamie Baggot. Dutch Barn is tasted every 20 minutes as it evolves from British apples, balanced with a touch of potato spirit until it develops into a crisp, clean, and exceptionally smooth vodka at 40% ABV.
Speaking of the launch, Jamie Baggot, Master Distiller at Ellers Farm Distillery, said:
“I am very excited to see Dutch Barn come to life, truly demonstrating our efforts to minimise our environmental impact wherever while giving people an eco-spirit they can truly enjoy – finding the perfect balance between people, profit and planet.”
Pending B Corp® status has already been secured, so it’s safe to say the team is dedicated to their sustainability ethos. Furthering the B-Corp ambitions of Ellers Farm Distillery, Dutch Barn comes in a unique locally sourced brown glass bottle which not only protects the vodka better but is also made of up to 60% recycled glass - whereas the UK average for clear glass, the usual choice of vodkas, is a mere 38%.
To celebrate the launch, Dutch Barn Orchard Vodka is encouraging us to join their tribe – and for everyone who does, they’ll plant a tree through their partnership with Ecologi.
Keep your eyes peeled, as it is set to launch in certain major retailers and on Amazon from the week commencing 21 March at RRP £29. When it does, why not try out the Orchid Bliss cocktail? Full of refreshing, fruity flavours, Orchid Bliss is the perfect summer drink!

Expect a feast for the eyes and stomach, as Holborn’s unique, luxury Indian dining concept Colonel Saab launches its Art and Food Pairing Experience on 24 May.
Colonel Saab's founder, Roop Partap Choudhary will personally take diners on a culinary journey across India, with a nine-course tasting menu of dishes and carefully paired and curated art collected by the award-winning entrepreneur and his family across the continent and lovingly brought to London. Roop’s father, Colonel Manbeer was given the honorific name Colonel Saab - shared by the restaurant - and the extensive menu is inspired by places he was stationed in the army, from local lunches in the tents of Rajasthan to British-inspired Indian breakfasts in the Officer’s Mess and stunning banquets hosted by Indian nobility and Maharajas The art-festooned restaurant was meticulously crafted as a love letter to Roop's family and India, with a treasure trove of eclectic and museum-worthy Indian art and artefacts collected by his family on their travels.
Roop spent a year retracing his father’s footsteps across India by train, bus and car with Indian food royalty, Karen Anand (Dishoom) to curate contemporary twists on dishes passed down through the generations of people they met, with many regional specialities appearing for the first time on a London menu.Roop spent a year retracing his father’s footsteps across India by train, bus and car with Indian food royalty, Karen Anand (Dishoom) to curate contemporary twists on dishes passed down through the generations of people they met, with many regional specialities appearing for the first time on a London menu.
And for this event, Roop and his team pair extraordinary art including 17th and 19th Century Tanjore paintings, the Maharaja of Patiala’s Asprey drinks bar, pure silver Gujarat temple doors and a canopy of ornate chandeliers from Firozabad with dishes which tell the stories of those regions and people.
The multi-sensory experience of India will also incorporate drinks. A Masala Dabba - or spice box - of artisanal gins, whiskies and rums based on Indian botanicals has been created with the Diageo mixology team, along with innovative
cocktails by celebrated mixologist Antony Bertin, designed to complement the food and named after Choudhary's family members. Roop said: “We are passionate about food, art and India so this event combines all three and brings them to life, in a multisensory experience which will take you across the vast continent and its diverse and beautiful sights, tastes and fragrances, showing the powerful roles food and art plays in India."
The nine-course menu costs £150 per person and includes progressive and exciting dishes, from Pulled Charcoal Lamb with Jeera Aloo and Biryani to Chicken Chettinad with Malabar Paratha and Chocolate Silk Cake, Thandai Crumble, Candy Floss and fresh berries. The vegetarian menu includes Gutti Vankaya, Andhra-style Eggplant Curry and Cauliflower 65, South Indian curd rice with fruit sorbet. Each mouthful will bring the continent and its rich history to life, with fascinating stories and insight about the carefully paired art and artefacts, from a stunning, carved temple door from South India, to handwoven Persian carpets and precious decanters and crockery from the palace of the Maharaja of Faridkot.
The modern Indian restaurant has made its home in the elegant, former Holborn Town Hall, continuing his family's proud legacy of hospitality that spans more than three decades, celebrating the vibrant and diverse culture of India’s food and history with humility, elegance and originality.
