Buffalo Vale’s Nocturne Vodka is the pure, smooth and characterful spirit your cocktails deserve

Words by Tom Parker

Nocturne Vodka is the creation of Buffalo Vale, a distillery founded on the banks of Sydney’s Buffalo Creek.

Founded in the spring of 2016, Buffalo Vale came about following a momentous trip in Tasmania, which saw four friends come together over a united interest in spirits and distilling.

What’s resulted is a company that prides itself on simplicity, ingenuity, purity and quality, and has since crafted respected gins, vodkas as well as its recently- launched Revenant – Buffalo Vale’s own unique single malt spirit that accompanies flavours of honey toast and fig with notes of dark chocolate.

Of its stellar range of spirits, the Nocturne Vodka is inspired by traditional distilling methods. With a foundation of sugar and water, what separates Buffalo Vale’s Nocturne Vodka from its competitors is its secret yeasts.

Following fermentation and distillation, Nocturne Vodka bears clean smooth characteristics with a hint of brioche. Easily drunk straight up or with a dash of soda, the spirit is also suited to your favourite cocktails whether you’re up for a Martini, Bloody Mary or anything in between.

‘Nocturne’ is a continuation of Buffalo Vale’s French naming theme. With their gin called ‘Clair De Lune’, translating in English to the light that radiates from the moon, ‘Nocturne’ is a translation for ‘night’.
