Black Cow is the world’s first Pure Milk Vodka, made in Dorset, England, from the milk of grass grazed cows.
It is a super-premium vodka, distilled from the whey of milk and treated to a secret blending process created by
dairy farmer Jason Barber. His inspiration came from a desire to diversify the produce from his 250 strong dairy
herd and his personal interest in vodka. Black Cow was launched by Jason and Creative, Paul Archard in 2012.
Black Cow Vodka from £28.00. Available from Sainsbury’s, Marks & Spencer, Majestic, Fortnum & Mason,
Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, Berry Bros. & Rudd and quality independent retailers.
