Our La Truffe collection will invigorate your senses and inspire your recipes, whether you’re an acclaimed chef or a dedicated amateur,” Simmons added. 

The La Truffe vodka from Petrossian will be available to order online from 15 November. Each 50cl bottle contains 5% black truffle. Bottles will retail at £75 each.
