About Boru Irish Vodka
Around the time 1,000 B.C., Ireland’s population of 500,000 was ruled by a disparate group of more than 100 regional kings, each with greater or lesser domains. Aiming to change that, Brian Boru — son of the accomplished Cennétig mac Lorcain — made himself King of Munster, subsequently overthrowing the Uí Néill dynasty and establishing himself as the first High King of Ireland. By declaring himself “High King,” Boru steered Ireland in the direction of the British and French monarchies, in which religion played a critical role in sovereign rule.
Named for Boru himself, Boru Irish Vodka is made using local grains and pristine Irish spring water. Distilled five times for exceptional clarity and smoothness, Boru Irish Vodka has a slightly-bready aroma along with a pleasant grassiness on the nose. The palate is mouth-coating, with sharp, peppery flavors leading to a warm and balanced finish.
Boru Irish Vodka was awarded a 93-point rating at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge in New York.

Historians are not clear on the exact origin of vodka since different sources link its beginning to both Russia and Poland. But one thing is clear: this somewhat simple spirit, first used as a medicinal concoction, has become one of the most versatile drinks in the world.
It can be distilled from any type of grains, potatoes, or even grapes worldwide. Due to its simplicity, this unaged spirit's main flavor factor is the quality of water and the ingredients used in the distillation process.
Primarily used in cocktails, vodka can also stand its ground when enjoyed neat.
