The brand behind it all
Dima’s distillery is based in Zhytomyr, about 140 kilometres west of Kyiv, and has been around since 1896. Ukraine’s long-standing vodka-making ability and expertise were key factors in creating Dima’s Vodka, as well as wanting to showcase Ukraine and its amazing traditions and culture in a traditional way. £1 from every bottle goes towards first aid kits for Ukraine.
The development process to perfect the recipe took just over a year, with 38 different recipe trials via focus groups in order to gauge the perfect radio and flavour profile. The distillation process uses several 700-litre column stills for three distillations. The spirit is filtered through sand and charcoal to remove impurities, soften any harsh flavours and give a smooth mouthfeel, and then filtered through sand again before the final column filtration. It is then rested for a week to allow the complex flavours to settle and integrate before bottling.
Millie Milliken adds: “The way this vodka has been made is a testament to founder Dima Deinega’s determination to make something with character and a clean finish. I really like that three different grains have gone into this vodka, highlighting how much impact that raw material has on the final product. It’s also been triple distilled and filtered through sand and charcoal to make it as pure and textured as possible.”
