Chase Distillery's "Farm-to-Glass" Potato Vodkas Joins Palm Bay

(March 2016) - Leading U.S. wine and spirits importer Palm Bay International is delighted to announce the addition of family-owned Chase Distillery to its growing artisanal spirits portfolio.

William Chase grew up in the picturesque countryside of Herefordshire, England and has been farming potatoes here for the last 20 years. In 2004, after a period spent successfully producing gourmet potato crisps, William decided to follow a newly discovered passion and try his hand at distilling ultra-premium, single estate vodka from his organically farmed potatoes. Four years later, in 2008, the first batch was distilled and William, proud of its high quality and local provenance, decided to put his own name on the bottle.

Chase vodka is produced from 100% estate grown potatoes using a highly skilled, artisanal distillation process that adopts traditional methods not changed since the 1900s. Using a bespoke copper batch pot, Europe’s tallest rectification tower (standing at 70ft) and their beautiful carter head style ‘Ginny’, each lovingly crafted Chase bottle is hand-filled and sealed on-site ensuring a genuine single estate process from field to bottle.

In addition to the original Chase Potato Vodka (40% abv), Palm Bay International is adding two non-traditional flavored vodkas, Chase Smoked (40% abv) and Chase Marmalade (40% abv), to its portfolio as well as Chase Elderflower Liqueur (20% abv) - made from a unique blend of Chase Potato Vodka base and a hand-crafted elderflower syrup produced from elderflower blossoms grown on local farms. Chase Vodkas and Chase Elderflower Liqueur will be available nationwide with an SRP of $34.99.
