Where it all began
For decades now, Toffee Vodka has gained a reputation as being the go-to tipple for skiers and boarders across the French Alps. The delicious combination of creamy toffee and crisp ice-cold vodka proved to be the perfect ‘straight off the slopes’ chill-out drink. And no doubt provided the fuel for some of the more outrageous apres-ski party nights.
Back in the 80s and 90s every bar worth its salt across the Alps was creating its own version of this sweet, gooey, boozy bottle of loveliness. And needless to say, the bars with the best toffee vodka attracted the biggest crowds.
And it was in this hedonistic atmosphere of ‘ski hard and party harder’ that Thunder was born.
Jon Lilly, creator and founder of Thunder Vodka, was the bar manager at the famous G-Jays bar, nestled directly at the base of the slopes in Val d'Isère. It was here that John perfected his craft, and G-Jays became widely credited with having the ‘best toffee vodka in town’…. and maybe even the Alps!
And the rest, as they say, is history.
The perfect blend
Thunder Toffee Vodka and Spirit is the culmination of many years of mixing and meticulous preparation. The closely guarded secret recipe produces the perfect symbiosis of distilled wheat grain vodka and a delicate toffee syrup infusion.
Thunder is the only Toffee Vodka made from completely natural ingredients, with no man-made additives or preservatives. The famous Thunder toffee taste comes from a completely natural toffee syrup, made simply by purifying and caramelising the juices of beet sugar.
Wherever possible, raw materials and production processes are sourced and managed locally. The premium five-times distilled wheat grain vodka is produced and bottled at the Thames Distillery in London.
Vegan friendly and sustainably sourced – Thunder Vodka is the perfect ‘guilt-free’ boozy pleasure.

Not very often a vodka fan but this is amazing! The smell and taste of this is out of this world and everyone who’s tried this is 100% impressed

All my friends are now hooked. I have to order this in bulk now to accommodate everyone else's orders that they bolt on to mine. If you haven't tried it, you really should. Just pour over ice and drink.

You feel it going down (nice & warm) Then you get that gorgeous toffee taste that just melts on your tongue.

The toffee taste is gorgeous. You could have it with ice or we like to drink it from shot glasses. How ever you serve it, it is gorgeous.

'Thunder' Toffee Vodka is out of this world. I have tried different vodka flavours, but this is a must have in the drinks cabinet. Even an occasional drinker would have to admit to appreciating this.
