After Doncaster wine and beer, vodka made in the town has gone on sale at the tourist information centre.

Ten flavours of Brittain’s Vodka are now available including black forest, butterscotch, cherry, chocolate, chilli chocolate, coconut, cranberry, raspberry, strawberry and rhubarb and toffee. The vodka is available in 50ml miniatures at £4 each.

Based in Sprotbrough, Brittains’ initial product concept was to blend raspberries from Eastfield Farm, Tickhill, with British vodka and initial success has persuaded them to add new flavours.

Tourism manager Colin Joy said they were delighted there is a butterscotch flavour because it was invented in Doncaster in 1817.

Jo Atkinson, from Brittains, said: “Our flavoured vodkas are proving very popular with members of the public as well as bars and restaurants. Doncaster vodka can be used as the base for a refreshing cocktail, or even poured over summer berries.”
