This is a drink that was invented back in 2003 in collaboration with Ian Wisniewski the renowned drinks writer and vodka expert. The idea was to create a new vodka profile for a vodka martini with existing vodkas. To make our "own" blend if you like, so we did vodka tastings and matched a couple of them that we thought would make for an interesting blend (it also had to go with the vermouth). Finally after much deliberation we came up with 2 parts Moskovaya 1 part Sichwha 1/4 part Martini dry, one dash angostura and a lemon twist. I particularly like how the earthyness of the Sichwha underpins the drink. I think this gives you a little something more to hold on to than your average vodka martini.
