With warmer days on the horizon and drinkers thirsty for new flavours to enjoy, Edwards 1902, the award winning, premium English potato vodka – have just launched their latest product, just in time for the summer months: Rhubarb Vodka.

Edwards 1902 English Rhubarb Vodka is the epitome of summer in a sip. The fresh, zingy rhubarb is balanced with the smoothness of Edwards 1902, and each bottle is naturally flavoured with locally sourced, pure pressed rhubarb juice from the famous Yorkshire Rhubarb Triangle, guaranteeing the perfect summer tipple. From making the most of the longer evenings to celebrations with friends, this new premium vodka is set to be the ultimate choice for those looking to broaden their taste buds and embrace a truly British summer.

Edwards 1902 Rhubarb Vodka is 100% British from Soil to Spirit, distilled from King Edwards potatoes, lovingly grown across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. The English Potato Vodka works in perfect harmony with vibrant pressed rhubarb juice, resulting in a smooth, fruity vodka for use neat, over ice or in cocktails. Furthermore, each bottle of Edwards 1902 English Rhubarb Vodka contains approximately 30% pressed rhubarb juice.

For a selection of summer certified serves, Edwards 1902 has collaborated with Andy Clarke, ITV This Morning’s renowned drinks expert. Inspired by the natural flavours, this collection of cocktails showcases the versatility of this
uniquely British spirit.
