DOT AU Vodka is an Australian vodka. It is created using Australian ingredients including Queensland sugar cane juice and Victorian deep spring water, which are triple distilled and cold filtered through a filtration system incorporating Australian charcoals.
The manufacturer claims the production process for DOT AU Vodka is derived from a Russian family who are thought to have migrated to Australia in the 1850s. Using the abundant natural resources of Australia, they adapted their own Russian-style vodka and produced a manufacturing technique that remained in family ownership for successive generations. During World War I a descendant of the Russian migrant joined the allied forces in North Africa, taking the recipe with him. The recipe was traded with a Scottish soldier in the British Army, who took it back to Scotland. It remained hidden in a chest for over 80 years, until it was rediscovered and returned to Australia.
In trials, the Beverage Tasting Institute of the USA awarded DOT AU Vodka the gold medal, declaring the vodka as "Exceptional". They reviewed the product as "Clear, mild tarragon, lemon verbena, and white pepper aromas. A smooth, silky entry leads to a glycerous, dry-yet-fruity medium body of candied lime zest, cream, tarragon, and green peppercorns. Finishes with a long spicy sweet fade of verbena and powdered sugar. Very appealing, delicate, and elegant citrus and herb flavors with a great texture. Serve in martinis or gimlets."
