Heston from Waitrose Cherry Bakewell Vodka

Following on from my review of the deliciously out there Heston Cherry Bakewell Hot Cross Buns, the ever fabulous Waitrose contacted me and offered to send their Heston Cherry Bakewell Vodka * to try. As you can imagine I was most excited and very thankful for their offer. This bottle is 70cl, 40% vol and costs £24.50. There are recommendations on mixing this to make a Cherry Bakewell Float or Ice Cream but frankly I’m opting for the alternative, straight from the fridge.

I have never seen or heard of this make but do know Lindt do an incredibly delicious Crème Brûlée Bar and given I picked this number up in Asda for a bargain price of 99p I thought heck lets give it a whirl.   Squares of choclate topped with a little dome and swirl pattern, the squares were considerably bigger than general chocolate bars. What is this bar, well I like the simplicity of the description – Dark Chocolate with Crème Brûlée…
