Big drinks deal for NB

East Lothian vodka ready to serve at top tennis event

Andy MurrayEast Lothian’s own vodka is to be served to the tennis in-crowd at this year’s Wimbledon Live event, described as the social event of the tennis calendar.

Wimbledon Live will see acts take to the stage alongside the world’s best tennis players on a night which is apparently not to be missed.

Following an exclusive invitation from the organisers, NB Vodka, launched just a few weeks ago, will be sampled by party guests attending the event which takes place on the evening of 26 June at Under the Bridge, a new music venue positioned underneath Stamford Bridge, Chelsea. NB Vodka is the only drinks brand to have been hand-picked for the bash.

Some of the sport’s biggest names are expected to attend, including Andy Murray, whose friend is playing in one of the bands performing.

vodkaIn preparation for the big night, NB Distillery’s expert mixologist has used a classic cocktail recipe in order to pay homage to the famous grass courts at SW19. Served to guests in true Wimbledon style, therefore, will be the Strawberry Deuce, a refreshing cocktail which combines fresh strawberries, tonic water, ice, a dusting of black pepper and, of course, NB Vodka.

Vivienne Muir, director at NB Gin, says: “We are truly honoured to have received this invitation. NB Vodka is very new so we are immensely excited that it can be sampled at such a prestigious event so early in its life. It’s very classic, very natural, and of the highest possible quality, which means that it’s an excellent base for cocktails, and we hope that our delicious Strawberry Deuce will go down well on the big night.”

Morten Jensen, partner at Billetto UK, which is helping to organise the event, says, “As far as I’m concerned, NB Vodka was the natural choice for this event. Its quality is second to none and its smooth flavour makes it the perfect product for creating cocktails. I’m sure that the tennis in-crowd will love it.”

NB Vodka is produced at NB Distillery in North Berwick, East Lothian, by husband-and-wife team Steve and Vivienne Muir. Also produced at the distillery is the award-winning NB Gin, which was launched in 2013 and named as the ‘Best London Dry Gin’ at The World Drinks Awards 2015.

NB Vodka is not a ‘flavoured’ vodka. All the taste comes purely from the botanicals used in the extremely stringent London Dry distillation method.
