28/08/2020 A vodka takes you on a journey of enlightenment
Buddha Zen Vodka - born from the distillation of the root of the Lotus Flower, and filtered through zen stones blessed by a Buddhist monk in Kamakura, home of the Great Buddha, this hand-crafted Japanese vodka takes you on a journey of enlightenment.
The unique sweetness and depth of flavor of the lotus root gives an elegant, mellow roundness to this vodka, and mixes harmoniously with Asian Fusion Inspired ingredients like green tea, sake, and yuzu citrus.
Raised in the muddy water amidst suffering, but growing skywards to bloom, unsullied and pure, as if floating free of attachment, the lotus flower symbolizes the purity of the mind enlightened through Buddhism.
Just as the lotus rises up from the depths of muddy ponds and lakes to blossom immaculately above the water’s surface, so too can the human mind develop the virtues of Buddha, and transcend desire and attachment to reveal its essentially pure nature.
This belief inspired them to craft a vodka that carries with it the spirit of Buddha to enlighten the world.
Their Buddha Zen Vodka which is a bronze medal winner at the 2020 London Spirits Competition passes through a unique filtration system containing Zen Stones which were blessed by a Buddhist monk in Kamakura, home of the Great Buddha. Each drop of Buddha Zen Vodka touches the five blessed Zen Stones, which also represent the five elements of the Buddhist Universe:
Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, and Sky.
Born from the distillation of the root of the lotus flower, and filtered through blessed Zen Stones, this vodka takes you on a journey of enlightenment. Break free from the shackles of your daily grind and find your own nirvana in every sip of this truly spiritual spirit.
