I first tried Howards of Kent vodka-based drinks at a community festival last summer. I liked what I tried so was delighted when four little bottles arrived in the post the other day.
Claire, the business’s owner, had been kind enough to send Almond, Citrus Spice, Limoncello and After Dark (coffee) flavoured drinks. As soon as the children were in bed Mrs Adams and I opened the bottles and filled our glasses.
Whatever the flavour, the one thing that strikes you about these drinks is the high quality of the ingredients. The Howards’ website goes to great lengths to point out that fruits are sourced and picked locally to the Howards HQ in Kent. The fresh aroma of these drinks is testament to this approach.
After much discussion, Mrs Adams and I came to the conclusion Citrus Spice was our favourite although they were all fantastic. There’s no question these spirits are for the discerning drinker who likes a high quality drink that isn’t mass produced.
The drinks are sold at craft fairs and similar events and full details of where Howards of Kent will be selling its wares is on its website (see below). Expect to pay £12.50 a bottle.
