Produced by the Duh u Boci distillery in Zagreb, Old Pilot’s Vodka has just taken the gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, one of the oldest and most prestigious events of its kind. Every year, SFWSC’s expert judges test each entrant blind, with no prior information concerning the particular spirit of the 3,000 entered.

Set up by flying enthusiasts Tomislav Anadolac and Hrvoje Bušić, Duh u Boci are no strangers to the limelight – their London Dry Gin won two gold in 2019 and 2021 – but the pure vodka category is always a particularly difficult field.

Old Pilot’s Vodka is made with a premium wheat distillate and purified four times through special filters. Each bottle has been hand-filled and -sealed, and features a distinctive aluminium aeroplane label. Old Pilot’s Vodka is gluten-free.
