Kin Toffee Vodka
Award winning Kin Toffee Vodka is a delicious drink created by Judith Wren and made in Newby Bridge, right on the Southern tip of Windermere, in the heart of the Lake District. Kin is a rich, blend of caramel, vanilla and toffee flavours hosted by a British vodka, and with an ABV of 20.3%. It’s a beautiful drink enjoyed “neat”, blended with a range of mixers or as a lead ingredient in cocktails. It is allergen free and vegan-friendly.
The name ‘Kin’ alludes to who you should drink it with – friends and family! The black label represents lakeland slate and the bird is of course a wren – Judith’s surname.
Judith’s inspiration to create Kin came from years of skiing in the French Alps, where versions of Toffee Vodka are very popular. Her aim was to encapsulate the personal, enveloping warmth and welcome, with a touch of fun and a representation of her own heritage – her base in the Lakes. Judging by the number of awards Kin has won over the years we say “mission accomplished Judith!”
