Babička, the original wormwood vodka, revives the magic of a 500 year old Czech witches' brew
Babička (ba-bitch-ka) vodka was inspired by 16th century Czechoslovakian wise old women called "babičkas". The babičkas freely used wormwood in their potions for its reputation of enhancing sensuality, creativity and love, not to mention its mildly hallucinatory effects. The babičkas rapidly became renowned for having mystical healing powers and practicing the art of witchcraft.These recipes created by babičkas represent some of the earliest vodka formulas ever created, a witches' brew. Entrepreneur Alex Clarke, was inspired to create the world's first original wormwood vodka after years of experience in the drinks, travel and music industries. After the discovery of a 500 year old distillery in the Czech Republic that produced both absinth and vodka, Alex wanted to keep the spirit and name of his creation as close to its birthplace as possible. Babicka, the original wormwood vodka, revives the magic of a 500 year old Czech witches' brew. It is a hypnotic blend of premium vodka infused with wormwood and special herbs, which takes its names from a group of 16th Century Czech peasant ladies who had a reputation for witchcraft. It is distilled 6 times in Prostejov in the Czech Republic and hydrated with water drawn from nearby springs.
