World’s First Fairtrade Vodka: FAIR


In a bid to help us drink responsibly, FAIR, the first and only Quinoa-based and fairtrade-certified Vodka has just arrived in London.

The founders, Alexandre Koiransky and Jean-Francois Daniel have managed to create a vodka that is sustainable, fair, delicious and looks cool.  Not having drunk much neat vodka since my irresponsible teen drinking days, I really was pleasantly surprised at how well it went down.

At £30 a bottle, FAIR is meticulously crafted in small batches.  This quinoa (keen-wah) -based vodka is incredibly smooth, perfect to drink on its own, or in yummy cocktails just like the ones I had at the launch.

FAIR won ‘Best tasting vodka 2009’ taking a gold medal at the New York Spirits Awards in June this year and was also rated as ‘exceptional’ by the Chicago Beverage Institute last month with a whopping 93 points!

Next to launch is their Goji berry liquor, I was lucky enough to try it and, even though I am not a massive fan of the berries, the drink is nectar!
