Connie Glaze Toffee Vodka Liqueur is deliciously smooth, beautifully balanced with a hint of sea salt. The latest experiment from maverick master distiller, Tarquin Leadbetter.

Every small batch of Connie Glaze Toffee Vodka is slowly filtered through Cornish golden sand at Tarquin’s craft distillery, then masterfully blended with devilishly tasty toffee and real sea salt crystals from Cornish Sea Salt Co.

“The joy of being a craft distillery is the opportunity to experiment, create small batches of spirits that can push the boundaries of flavour innovation, and partner up with fellow local artisan producers to celebrate the best of Cornwall! We’re thrilled to be working with the legendary Cornish Sea Salt Co to create this deliciously smooth Toffee Vodka – packed with proud Cornish personality!” Tarquin added.

“We aim for balance in every one of our spirits, and Connie Glaze Toffee Vodka is no exception, after plenty of experimentation we loved the savoury note that a touch of Cornish Sea Salt brought to our deliciously smooth craft vodka. Cutting through the sweetness of the rich toffee to create a special sipping spirit – best enjoyed over ice with great company” said Tarquin Leadbetter.  

Named after the incredible golden sand beaches of Constantine Bay and the crisp clean blue water of the Atlantic Ocean, Connie, short for Constantine and Glaze, meaning ‘Blue’ in Cornish. The team at Southwestern Distillery is dedicated to protecting their local beaches, 1% of all sales of Connie Glaze Vodka is given to Beach Guardian CIC to support their work cleaning nearby Constantine Bay and the Cornish coast.
