How did you get started?
It all started when I was at school when I used to brew up orange juice for all the other pupils. My home brewing then changed to an interest and a passion to find the cleanest vodka on the planet. I think we have done it.
What’s the best piece of business advice you could give?
Pick a good partner who compliments all your weak points, I think I have done this too in Archie. (Paul Archard, co-owner) Also enjoy what you do.
Where would you like to see your business in 5 years time?
I would love our vodka to be renowned for being the best vodka in the world, and being able to buy it wherever.
If you could only enjoy Black Cow Vodka one way, what would it be & why?
That's a hard one as our vodka is great neat over ice with cheese, it also makes a great martini or in a cosmopolitan. As it brings a little cream to the party. If it was one way and no other, I would have to go for an expresso martini as milk obviously goes with coffee but also you get the creamy notes without the woody alcohol you get with some vodkas.
You can invite one person (living or dead) to your last meal – Who would it be and why? …and what’s on the menu?
Oh, that's easy! It would have to be Oliver Reed. Why? I think it would be fairly entertaining and I'm sure that he would appreciate black cow. On the menu we would have to start with oysters, lemon, Tabasco and Black Cow. This would be followed by duck with a little orange and Black Cow sauce or maybe a great British steak with a blue cheese sauce and of course a little Black Cow.
I would probably miss the pudding and move straight to the cheese board with some smelly cheeses and our cheddar, all washed down with some more black cow.

I would like to thank Jason for taking time out to answer 5 Questions and wish Black Cow Vodka all the best for the future.
