Quaycuisine serves Wight Vodka to the Captains & Crews

Cowes, Isle of Wight, England

When it comes to crew house catering and yacht provisioning, no one on our Island does it better than Julie Hudson and her team at Quaycuisine. Offering some of the Island’s best food and drinks throughout the year, with a particular focus on the yachting crowd, Julie knew immediately that Wight Vodka would complement her extensive list of offerings.

“Wight Vodka is by far the best vodka I have ever tasted,” says Hudson. “I can see why crews from around the world are asking for it. As it’s seven times distilled potato spirit, and has an incredibly soft flavour that reminds me of the ocean, it is best taken as an unadulterated chilled vodka martini. Fabulous!”

Wight Vodka has been navigating its way into the Island’s best bars and restaurants, and more recently onto the hottest yachts in our harbours. Wight parties are being thrown, with the centre of attention being on Wight Cups, one of the vodka’s signature cocktails.

“Wight Cups are an extremely refreshing drink which are gathering incredible pace with skippers, crews and their supporting cast,” continued Hudson. “The cocktail is made with Wight Vodka, tonic, lemonade and a splash of orange liqueur. Finished off with strawberries and lemon wedges and served in a jug, sipping a Wight Cup in the afternoon or early evening on a hot summer day is revitalizing!”

50° Degrees North, the company behind Wight Vodka, is ecstatic to have Quaycuisine offering the product. Ritu Manocha, one of the directors of the company, commented “Wight Vodka is definitely geared toward the yachting elite. For those captains and crews with extremely discerning tastes who can afford the best things that life has to offer, Wight Vodka is a fabulous indulgence!”
