Smoke Lab is a premium vodka that was over a decade in the making. Realizing there was no locally produced premium vodka in the booming Indian spirits market, NV Group’s CEO Varun Jain went on a quest for the perfect formula. He travelled across Europe, collaborating closely with master blenders and his manufacturing team, until he found that special recipe. After that, it took another year to refine the product testing it on his friends and family. The result is a bold and smooth vodka that can compete with any European premium brand, but is also distinctly Indian. Smoke Lab Vodka comes in two flavors, classic and aniseed.
Smoke Lab Aniseed Vodka is a playful exploration of anise or “saunf”, a much-loved Indian herb. Smoke Lab vodka is 5-times distilled from locally-sourced high-quality basmati rice, and brought to proof with pure Himalayan water. It comes in a sleek minimalist bottle that reflects the progressive philosophy of this modern Indian brand.

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.
