Sipping Arbikie with Scotland’s Most Stylish
Vodka Tasting and Fashion Event
On Sunday 7th December we had a super day with contemporary fashion designer Iona Crawford and professional stylist Laura McNeil who combined forces to host an exclusive preview of Iona’s Spring Summer 2015 Womenswear Collection at the exquisite McLeod House within the grounds of Trump International Golf Links Aberdeen.Not only did guests enjoy the showcasing of Iona Crawford’s Spring Summer 2015 Collection but Laura guided through key pieces from Iona’s portfolio offering style tips for daytime and evening wardrobe staples.
The 30 VIP guests enjoyed a champagne reception followed by a comparative tasting between a French and Arbikie Highland Estate Vodka by David Stirling, Founder and Brand Ambassador of Arbikie Highland Estate.
The finale served was a Arbikie Christmas Vodka Highball Cocktail made with a home-made orange, ginger and manuka honey combination served with soda and physalis garnish.
Arbikie Highland Estate Vodka was very well received with some regular drinkers of the French vodka saying they were switching to Arbikie. Our comparison really showed the quality of our vodka.
Owner Nikki Meiklejohn of the renowned Huntly Country House, Castle Hotel, said she would love to stock our vodka and as a family company was thrilled to hear our own family story and focus on our provenance and farm to bottle ethos.
Great day had by all!
