Party Like a Russian

November 22, 2016

We had a fabulous evening of food and vodka in October, with Adnams looking after the drinks which were matched with the gorgeous dishes created by Ben Hegarty. The recently released Rye Hill vodka turned up too, which is made using rye grown by Jonathan Adnams at his farm in Reydon, just a few miles away from the brewery and distillery in Southwold. If you’d like to have a night like this at home feel free to borrow our menu below and the vodka recipes from Adnams for inspiration.
