The Edwards Potato Vodka Company
Stand number: FD139
AboutEstablished in 2018, The Elsham Wold Distillery is located just a few miles from where our spirit’s main ingredient was first cultivated.
With a heritage that dates back to 1902 when the first King Edward potato was grown by John Butler in Scotter, Lincolnshire, King Edward potatoes are more than just a base ingredient for Edwards 1902. Grown during the coronation of King Edward VII and named to commemorate the occasion, the King Edward potato is one of the oldest surviving varieties in Europe.
Proud of our craft, we make 100% of our alcohol from raw ingredients and control the whole process ourselves. We truly believed that locally-produced spirits from natural, raw ingredients could transcend the popular craft market and conquer the premium spirits industry. We set out to prove that quality produce, originating from our own farms across Lincolnshire, could create a premium single-variety potato vodka, from a simple ingredient on our doorstep that we already knew so well. This hands-on, sustainable approach to our spirit has been an important part of our journey, and one that we think can be tasted in every bottle.
Edwards 1902 is a multi award-winning spirit, having recently achieved a SILVER IWSC award, as well as MASTERS (Smooth) & GOLD (Ultra-Premium) medals at the 2020 Vodka Masters.
