A century in the making.
With a heritage that dates back to 1902 when the first King Edward potato was grown by John Butler in Scotter, Lincolnshire, King Edward potatoes are more than just a base ingredient for Edwards 1902. Grown during the coronation of King Edward VII and named to commemorate the occasion, the King Edward potato is one of the oldest surviving varieties in Europe.
Famous for its eating qualities thanks to its superior creamy texture, the variety has become a source of great pride in its home county, and some of our team have been farming it throughout their lives. Its royal story, rich qualities and close ties gave us the confidence to create one of the smoothest premium potato vodkas on the market today.
