Blavod (blah-VOD) is an 80-proof (40% ABV) black vodka produced in Germany. It is owned by Distil Plc, a British spirits company that also owns RedLeg Rum and Blackwoods Gin.

The brand was first launched in 1998[1] and is marketed on its unique black colour that derives from Catechu, an extract from the heartwood of Burmese catechu acacia trees.[2] Catechu does not interfere with the characteristics of the vodka, imparting no additional flavour or odour and leaving no stains.[3]

In the United Kingdom and Ireland it is sold at 37.5% strength.[4]

Blavod was created by marketing consultant Mark Dorman[5] and is marketed globally as a premium vodka. It is particularly popular at Halloween time.
