This bar was in Manhattan, and the two men were reminiscing about their homeland. The conversation turned to drink, as it often does in these situations.
They came up with the idea of creating a vodka that would be made by Scottish distillers, using only Scottish barley and Scottish mountain water.
A vodka so refined and so pure needed an entirely new method of distillation. A quintuple micro-distillation technique was invented, just for us.
After months of hard work the idea that began in New York became a reality; VALT Vodka was first distilled on St. Andrew's Day and bottled on the anniversary of Robbie Burns' birthday.
