OAK AGED VODKA: Challenging everything you thought you knew about vodka, their Oak Aged Vodka combines the toasted influence of Ex-Bourbon casks with the spices more commonly used to enhance rum. This infuses the delicate character of their spirit with rich, fruity aromas and warming spice.
Bimber Oak Aged Vodka is a four-times distilled 100% wheat spirit which is aged in Ex-Bourbon casks and infused with a secret mix of spices for a delicate, smooth taste.
CHERRY INFUSED VODKA: Taking inspiration from Polish “Nalewka” they have brought infused vodka into the 21st century, using the finest wheat vodka and infusing it with a variety of fresh fruit and carefully selected spices for up to eight weeks.
Bimber’s cherry infused vodka are made with a four-times distilled wheat spirit, which is rested with the Cherries for up to eight weeks, before filtered and bottled at the distillery.
BLACKBERRY INFUSED VODKA: Bimber’s Blackberry infused vodka are made with a four-times distilled wheat spirit, which is rested with the Blackberries, Vanilla and Cloves for up to eight weeks, before filtered and bottled at the distillery. No artificial flavours or additives just pure, homemade taste delivered in small batches.
LONDON DRY GIN: Bimber London Dry Gin is a stand-out classic – striking the perfect balance between bright juniper; orange and lemon citrus freshness, nutty coriander seed, Fragrant angelica root, and warm cinnamon. The finish is dry and earthy, with hints of cassia & liquorice. It has remarkable persistence, which delivers the individual character of their ten botanicals in waves that lap across your palate.
SUMMER FRUIT VODKA: Bimber’s Summer Fruits infused vodka is made with a four-times distilled wheat spirit, which is rested with the Strawberry, Raspberry, Blackberry, Cherry, Redcurrant and Blackcurrant for up to eight weeks, before filtered and bottled at the distillery.

ENGLISH BARLEY VODKA: Distilled from the finest English Barley, the result is a wonderfully smooth and buttery vodka that is nuanced with nutty, fruity notes and an extraordinarily soft mouth feel. A delicious expression that proves vodka can deliver flavour and character when distilled with care and attention.

About London Spirits Competition
The London Spirits Competition looks to recognise, reward and help promote spirits brands that have successfully been created to identify with and target a specific spirits drinker. For any spirits brand to earn its place on a retailer’s shelf or a restaurant’s spirits list - and then vitally stay there - they need to be marketable and consumer driven and not just produced in the general hope it can find enough people willing to sell and buy it.
