Minke Irish Vodka

Distilled from whey alcohol in the distilleries copper pot still, Minke Vodka is a smooth and sophisticated spirit, offering a premium drinking experience.

As with the gin, Minke Vodka is inspired by the Minke Whale, the majestic creatures that swim wild in the Atlantic off the coast of Clonakilty.

How to enjoy Minke Vodka

The luxuriously smooth vodka can be sipped easily or enjoyed over ice with a splash of tonic and a wedge of lime.

Where to buy

Minke vodka will retail at €33.95 and is now available exclusively in Centra and Supervalu stores nationwide.
