It begins with our love of sweet potatoes. Yes, we love them as a side order of fries but we wanted to push the boundaries of taste and texture and take the humble sweet potato to a higher level.
As master moonshiners did with corn mash many moons ago, we took the smooth, rich flesh of the sweet potato and used it to bolster a heady mix of botanicals and spices to craft our range of truly artisan sweet potato spirits and liqueurs.
Founder Garry had been involved with a family sweet potato farm in North Carolina for years bringing the best sweet potatoes to the UK and making sweet potato crisps, The opportunity and idea to make spirits happened by a chance conversation – “Is it possible to make vodka from sweet potatoes?”
The Sweet Potato Spirit Company’s spirits are crafted using only the best raw, natural ingredients; handpicked sweet potatoes, fruit and other botanicals and spices. Each bespoke blend is triple distilled in a small copper pot alembic stills to ensure a smooth taste with none of the burn often associated with a tipple.
The percentage of alcohol in each sweet potato spirit was determined not in an arbitrary manner but because that was the precise amount that held together the intense ensemble of flavours that was required.
