Black Cow Vodka at The Espresso Martini Experiment

A vodka made from milk!? Perfectly creamy for an Espresso Martini.

70cl / 40%
Black Cow was the world's first vodka to be made entirely from milk. Made in West Dorset, in the proximity of Bridport, the milk is separated in curds and whey. The curds are used to make cheese, of which one is Barber's 1833 Cheddar, which won the 2012 World Cheese Awards Cheddar Trophy. The whey is then fermented and distilled to make the vodka. The texture is, somewhat unsurprisingly, rather creamy.


Black Cow is an innovative vodka made using what is left over from the milk after making cheese, which results in an exceptionally smooth vodka with a unique creamy character. Our Pure Milk Vodka™  is made at The Black Cow Distillery, located right in the heart of Childhay Manor organic farm, a 13th-century Manor set in the beautiful rolling countryside of West Dorset on the coast of South West England.
Dairy farmer Jason Barber who together with Paul Archard started Black Cow in 2012, recognised the potential in what was left over from the milk after the cheese making had finished. Inspired by tales of Mongolian conquests in more ways than one, the journey to producing the world’s smoothest vodka began.
Black Cow’s Espresso Martini is made with only three natural ingredients: Black Cow, organic maple syrup and espresso coffee. Naturally, the combination of coffee and dairy is a match made in heaven. The velvety smooth and creamy Black Cow perfectly balances the bitterness of the coffee, giving a fullness in taste and flavour. Just like coffee and cream
TASTE : Sweet vanilla on the nose, deliciously creamy and clean with a hot cinnamon finish on the palate.
