Where can one possibly find the time to explore the wonderful world of vodka?

A rather fitting place to start your journey is Baltic Restaurant as this Southwark eatery boasts the largest collection of vodkas in England.

And whether your preference is to quaff Broken Clock Vodka neat, in an ice cold martini or an expertly created cocktail like this one, now is the perfect time to pay a visit as our quintessentially English vodka is now Baltic’s vodka of the month.
DSC04449_20-09-05_Broken_Clock_Lingering_Vodka_Baltic.jpg Broken Clock’s characterful recipe comes from English country gardens and Georgian era books and classic botanicals.

It was at the end of the 18th century that the word ‘vodka’ first began to appear in English literature, with British clergyman William Tooke writing about this ‘rectified spirit’ in 1799.

And it was only earlier in that same century that ‘vodka’ began being used back in the spirit’s Russian and Polish motherland.

Curiously, back then neutral distilled grain spirits were still known as ‘wine’ or ‘bread wine’ while vodka became a term reserved for special spirits with a distinctive taste – usually coming from an infusion of local botanicals or fruits.

And so Broken Clock, with its time honoured recipe and traditional copper pot distillation, is a fine choice for both vodka aficionados and authoritative drinks historians alike.

This Broken Petal has been created by Baltic’s @karolkavka and is a consummate expression of Broken Clock’s unique taste, pairing our vodka’s garden essences with botanical English vermouth and fragrant rose petals.

INGREDIENTS:

50 ml Broken Clock Vodka
20 ml @londinio.liqueurs White Vermouth
15 ml Agave Syrup
12 ml Lemon Juice
2 drops Peychaud’s Bitters
Egg white
Garnish of Rose Petals

METHOD:

Dry shake the ingredients in a Boston Shaker to generate the foam and then shake again with plenty of ice. Hawthorne strain into a chilled coupe and top it off with the blushing rose petals.
