We’re writing a book

Everybody loves a good story, and since we’re often asked to tell ours, we thought it high time we put into a book. Enter: One Potato, Two… (an excellent title, don’t you think?). 

Scheduled for publication in October, we’re telling it all – from Will’s early days as a potato farmer in Herefordshire to the present success of his vodkas and gins. And of course we’ll be mining his triumphs with Tyrrell’s and other business ventures too.

One Potato, Two… will be a celebration of the highs and lows of entrepreneurship, British-born family businesses, and, most of all the humble potato – without which none of this would’ve been possible. Expect lots of anecdotes, business how-tos and food and cocktail recipes too.

Food writer and photographer Kate McAuley is working alongside Will and the team at Chase to produce the book. It’s a mammoth task, but when have we ever been known to shy away from those? We do, however, need your help.

To feature our loyal customers in the book, we’re running an Instagram competition. For a chance to be featured, upload your favourite Chase moment, tagging @ChaseVodka and using the hashtag #OnePotatoTwoBook. We can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Over the next couple of months, we’ll also be posting a lot of behind-the-scenes pictures and videos as the book comes together. You can follow our progress on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
