Stephen Sparrow created Snow Leopard Vodka with one mission, to make an extraordinary tasting vodka which could make a significant contribution to saving the snow leopard from extinction.
When Stephen Sparrow set out to create Snow Leopard Vodka, he knew it had to be a vodka of rare character, just like its name sake. That’s why he chose to use luxury spelt grain, an ancient super grain five times more expensive than wheat and rye, commonly used to make vodka. Spelt is what gives Snow Leopard its distinctive nutty taste and creamy texture and makes it perfect for a classic martini. Better still, each bottle sold helps to support snow leopard conservation.
They are proud to have raised over $250,000 for snow leopard conservation projects to date.
Snow Leopard vodka is the first luxury vodka to be made from rare Spelt grain. Spelt has a distinct nutty, fresh taste. It’s tough husk protects the grain from external pollutants and results in a freshness not found in any other grain. Spelt is grown without the use of pesticides or fertilisers and is typically five times the price of other grains used in premium vodka production.
To guarantee quality and perfection their vodka is hand crafted in small batches, undergoing a complex 6 stage distillation process, using natural spring water drawn from an artesian well.
The Snow Leopard spirit is expertly filtered twice over charcoal to produce a soft, smooth and full bodied exceptional tasting vodka.
All of this takes place at their distillery in Poland, Polmos Lublin, 125 miles from Warsaw, the capital. Polmos Lublin, is over 100 years old and their master distiller Joanna Dawidowicz has been making award winning vodkas for over 30 years
