Happy St. George’s Day! Today is the day we celebrate everything English. We’re thinking Marmite, fish and chips, tea with milk, James Bond and Chase vodka! As a celebration of this day, Drinks21 are offering you a discount throughout April when you purchase Chase Potato or Marmalade Vodka online. This delicious and unique vodka is made in the Chase Distillery in Herefordshire and we love it!

Chase Vodka

The very first bottle of Chase vodka was produced in April 2008 and took two years in the making. Each batch numbered bottle is a true labour of love, using traditional methods to produce the finest, smoothest vodka with true provenance. When you buy the marmalade or potato vodka online you will experience true refreshing, fruitiness from the marmalade and a creamy, buttery taste from the potato vodka. The potatoes are grown on a farm in the heart of Herefordshire.

St. George's flag

St. George's Day began in 1222 when the Council of Oxford declared April 23rd to be 'St George’s Day'. There is the medieval legend that St. George rode past on his white horse to slay the dragon and save the princess of Silene in Libya, as she was being offered up to the dragon. In the process St. George dismounted and drew his sword, protecting himself with the sign of the cross, hence our flag today.

It is interesting to see that St. George’s Day isn’t a National Holiday, as many of us may wish it to be, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still spend the day celebrating quintessential Englishness (there’s an English-sounding phrase for you!). Here’s to all things English, including Chase Vodka, Aston Martin’s, Sunday roast dinners, red phone boxes, the list goes on…
