Fabulous Vodka was set up by Chris Spiller, a well known and much respected name in the spirit industry. Chris is the brainchild behind numerous high-end spirit-based beverages and has provided his expertise to many brand owners for 15 years.
Seeing many of the products he had helped to develop on the shelves of supermarkets up and down the land, Chris decided it was time to go it alone and launch a product of his own.
First off the production line was “Caralicious”, a caramel vodka that wowed Christmas shoppers in Reading, Henley and Chris’s home town of Marlow, where he is based. As hoped, the free samples offered converted into sales and Chris shifted over a thousand bottles in December 2008 – despite the credit crunch, with many people buying a bottle for themselves, and another as a present.
Caralicious was joined in July 2009 by “Krol Kazimiersz” a Polish potato vodka which is smooth, creamy and fantastic straight from the fridge, on ice, with a slice of lime or lemon. Then in September 2009 a brand new gin was distilled, “Perivale Dry” is light, delicate, citrussy and smooth, designed specially to make the perfect G & T, or Martini.
The Fabulous Vodka Company is small friendly business, with a dedicated tasting panel made up of family and friends who put in hours of strenuous tasting work to ensure the continuing quality of our products. The Fabulous Vodka Company will be developing more products for release throughout this year, once the tasting panel are feeling a bit better.
The Fabulous Vodka Company offers a full product design and development service to brand owners wishing to have their own branded alcoholic drinks.
All of The Fabulous Vodka company’s drinks are made without compromise, using the finest ingredients and the best methods and practises. Our products are rigorously tested and tasted to ensure the highest quality and best taste. Our commitment to you is that we will not sell something that we wouldn’t drink ourselves. The Fabulous Vodka Company encourages sensible drinking.
Caralicious is a blend of natural caramel and finest vodka, and although originally designed to be an after dinner liqueur, it has proven to be extremely versatile.
Perivale Dry is a full strength gin, specifically developed to make the perfect gin and tonic, which for me equates to one third Perivale Dry Gin, two thirds good fresh Indian tonic water, ice and a slice of lemon or lime.
Krol Kazimiersz Vodka is distilled in Poland from potatoes, it is brought to England by tanker at high strength (96% alcohol) where we blend it, reduce its strength and turn it into the finest vodka in the UK.
Fabulous recently released “Cask One” vodka. We were confident that it would be well received, but we’re staggered at the response to it! Unfortunately we have now run out of “Cask One”, so keep an eye out for news on “Cask Two”.
Called Xerot, (pronounced Hero) our new vodka is the best pure grain vodka I’ve tried. There are strictly limited quantities of Xerot, so it will not be here for long!

Why You’ll Love It
When did French food get so ‘fancy’? Just because you can’t pronounce some of the menu items (ahem, grosses crevettes et St-Jaques rôties) doesn’t mean you won’t love the classic flavors of Southern France.
At Bistro D’oc, Chef Bernard Grenier and his family have created an enclave of French flavor and flair. From the chic cafe ambiance to the genuinely nice staff and—it practically goes without saying—stunningly good food, this DC treasure certainly has that je ne sais quoi.
“Went here on a date and absolutely loved it. The food was perfect from start to finish. The staff was really friendly, attentive, and helpful. Finally, the restaurant itself is cozy and cute. Can’t wait to go again!”
“Excellent mussels, salads, and desserts. If my boyfriend and I only went on one date for the rest of our lives, I would choose D’oc followed by a film at Landmark, conveniently right around the corner.”
“What a French bistro ought to be. Small, charming, and reasonably priced … Potage Cresson was excellent.”
“This place is the best kept secret in DC. It is the best French bistro around and has great prices. I have been going here for seemingly 10 years for lunch and have never had a bad meal.”
