Blue Duck Rare Vodka
Blue Duck Rare Vodka is inspired by the extremely rare and endangered blue duck (Hymenolaimus malacorhynchos). It is unique to New Zealand, and is confined to white-water rivers in the country's remote mountain regions.
Blue Duck is a premium vodka that is handcrafted, batched-distilled in a reflex copper pot still and is blended with the purest water in the world. Seven distillations refine the vodka to produce a velvety smooth texture and a highly distinctive and incomparable taste.
A percentage of our profits will be donated to the Royal Forest and Bird Protection Society of New Zealand, an organisation dedicated to the preservation of the blue duck for future generations.
A rare duck, a rare vodka - and a rare opportunity to drink responsibly and help save this endangered species from extinction.
Blue Duck Rare Vodka has recently been awarded a Gold Medal at SIP Awards in the US. And following that received a Gold Medal and a CCA award for consistent excellence from The Fifty Best in the US. The global awards and accolades keep rolling in and this Vodka keeps reaching new heights on the international stage.
