42 Below manuka honey vodka is made with the purest ingredients. The honey is taken from special beehives placed in New Zealand’s manuka tree plantations. Unlike most honeys, manuka is darker and more savoury with oaky flavours and a hint of caramel. To make the premium vodka, the raw manuka honey is vapourised by applying direct heat, driving off steam, that condenses into a rich essence. 42 Below Vodka is then infused with the honey essence.
