Tim & Tanya - Black Lion Vodka Founders

Awards success for Blacklion Vodka

Blacklion are new players to the world of vodka but they are certainly paving the way in terms of British vodka innovation, branding and quality. 

Blacklion Vodka is the UK’s rarest vodka and is the first vodka to be made in the UK from sheep’s milk. The brand was launched by husband and wife team, Tim and Tanya Spittle who amongst other things, rear and nurture their flock of rare breed sheep on their family farm in the Cotswolds. 

Since their launch in 2021, the brand has been earning top reviews, including a Spirit Bronze in The IWSC 2022 awards for their smooth spirit which is made using an innovative method of recycling leftover whey from the cheese-making process. 

Yet if one award during a month wasn’t enough, Tim and Tanya were also thrilled to learn of their Launch Design Bronze and Presentation Gold at this year’s World Vodka Awards, plus the Show’s top overall Gold for Best Presentation in 2022. The awards were announced on 25th March 2022. 

Blacklion Vodka is a crisp, clean and characterful vodka that’s silky smooth and has the subtle aromas and flavour of the Edelweiss flower. It is a truly unique Cotswold born and Swiss-inspired vodka launched exclusively through the Craft Drink Co.
