Spirit of Wales Steeltown Welsh Vodka is contemporary and complex with delicate citrus and pepper tones. Spirit of Wales filters their vodka through anthracite from Ammanford in Carmarthenshire, South West Wales and this helps to give the Steeltown Vodka’s a distinctive Welsh influence and character.
